My friend and I were there in December 2014 and were able to do the Zip Line & Gravity Swing. We definitely did them in the right order (zip, then swing) and they were a lot of fun! I think our stomachs are still left up at the bridge. My friend had never done either type of activity and these... More

Stopped in on the way to Taupo (tandem skydive on Sunday) to check out the drive time/road. Watched people go on the flying fox and bridge swing (bungy didn't/doesn't operate at weekends)...why did I look down the side of the bank? Came back Monday to do my booked bungy. Had friends to do some 'other angle' videoing for me. Got... More

In my line of work, I meet lots of people and get to do lots of amazing things. This has definitely been a highlight of my extensive travels. The crew here are amazing, very friendly, supportive and fun, and I cannot speak highly enough of the beautiful location that makes up Gravity Canyon (not to mention... They strap a go... More

This was truly one of the best things I have done in my life! The staff were so helpful, friendly, and professional. I travelled from Hastings on a Monday morning just for the bridge swing and it was well worth the 6-7 hour round trip. We were the only ones there that day and felt like we had the entire... More

The gorge and view of the river are really something. The detour from the main road is very well signposted and the road is good. Friendly helpful staff and alternatives to the Bungee jump for the faint hearted.

Gravtiy Canyon was one of the stops my Red Carpet Tours group made. Overall, the staff was really friendly and helpful. I went tandem with another girl in my group and the specialists did make a few jokes about not knowing how to attach two people, but once I got on the platform and started freaking out, they were helpful...

I had the best, scariest time of my life. Me and a friend planned to do the fox swing and within 5 minutes we were persuaded to do a bungee swing instead being told we would not regret it! It was amazing, the staff were so relaxed that it made me feel so safe! After the swing I nearly did... More

Had the best time. If your looking for a scenic drive with a thrill at the end then "Gravity canyon" is the place to stop in. So go and see "Tomo" and the gang for the time of your life. They have a flying fox, a bungy jump and a bungy swing all as mad as the other, plus a... More
