This was a huge disappointment for me and my friends, firstly it is very expensive which would be ok if it didn't feel like you are on a conveyor belt. It costs a few hundred bucks and is over in a couple of minutes. Personally if you're looking for a good buzz then do a skydive. It's a much bigger... More

A great experience. The staff were very friendly and encouraging - very supportive if you're scared of the jump. The experience is a great rush. Pure fun. We did a regular jump and a pin drop separately and then a joint jump backwards, which was a great combo. While I can't compare this to the bungee, I enthusiastically recommend this... More

What a scary but awesome experience - did three different jumps, the pin drop (guys had to give me a little nudge)' chair swing and the upside down! The last one was the scariest. The staff made the whole experience awesome fun as well! And even better the money I paid for the last 2 jumps went to charity, good... More

I cannot recommend the canyon swing highly enough, it was a truly amazing, adrenalin pumping experience, far better than skydiving! My husband and I did a forward tandem swing to start off with and then each did a solo jump once we were that bit braver! The staff are fantastic, they're a lot of fun, joking around with everyone, making... More

Shotover Canyon Swing is set in the most beautiful place on earth, and falling off a deckchair backwards down into it was like nothing I've ever done in my life! The thrill was excellent! I would LOVE to do this again! The guys who set me up for the swing were hilarious but also very professional. I was not concerned... More

I've never been launched off a cliff before and figured "what better way to do it than end it with a swing?" when looking at the different bungy offers in town. The Canyon Swing was incredible! Not only is falling off a ledge into a gorgeous river absolutely amazing, but going in head first is adrenaline pumping and insanely fun!... More

The team is so good, with a great sense of humor.. They tease u , scare u purposefully but make sure that u r comfortable as for most of the people it's... More

Dude, it was the greatest/coolest jump of my life, I have done blackflips! And there are a lot of different options of jumps (there is a catalog). And the guys are very funny, they mock with your scare.

This is the best way to discover what Queenstown is all about: adrenaline, beautiful vistas and a great sense of hospitality. They will take care of you to make sure you jump off their platform in the most secure set-up while they tease you enough to scare the #%%^^ out of you. Their sense of humour is amazing and the...
