My friends and I decided to do the canyon swing whilst on a girls trip to Queenstown, and it was absolutely incredible! At first I was super nervous - even a little teary! - when it was my turn to jump, but the operators were kind and helped me over the edge, for want of a better choice of words!... More

You can't leave Queenstown until you have done the famous canyon swing! Highlight of my trip so far, the guys at canyon swing are hilarious and make the whole experience even better! You can choose over 70 different ways to jump, I chose the slide as I wasn't too keen on jumping! As soon as I'd done it I wanted... More

The Canyon Swing is so good I can't describe it in words! It's so fast and when you jump off and you think it's over it's not you just keep on going! So fun! 😜

The team are fantastic at scaring the pants off you while being hilarious, professional and caring all at the same time. Was an exhilarating experience, definatley something to tick off the bucket list and say you've done. Possibly something I'd try again, the feeling it gave you was indescribable, in a great way. But think I'm still shaking a bit... More

This is the second time I have been with the Shotover Canyon Swing group. It was so much fun, I will do it again next year. Everyone in the group enjoyed the swing and did not hesitate, this meant everyone could get multiple jumps. The instructors like people who show no fear, which is exactly what I did. Started with...

one of the best activities i have done and would definitly recommend it! The staff are a great laugh and made our experience! I opted for the Elvis Cuttaway which was terrifying but made me very keen to do a cheap second swing in the Chair! Excellent!!

We did this on a cold, foggy, rainy day and still had a brilliant time. We did a tandem jump and I will admit those few seconds of free fall are simply terrifying. But then it is all over, and you can't help but feel great after such an incredible adrenalin rush, and I just love the perspetive of swinging... More
