The guys over at shotover canyon swing are absolutely incredible and beyond words to describe. I have an amazing experience jumping off a cliff despite being absolutely terrified and weak to my knees. The guys are very fun but also very thorough with all safety procedures. You can also get some awesome photos and an excellent video of your jump... More

Where do I start. Firstly the staff! AMAZING, They were incredibly unprofessional! But not the way you think! They were hilarious! They scared me half to death along with other people. They did their job to such a high standard I hadn't noticed until I watched my videos! They were great! I did the Backwards jump and the Pin Drop.... More

Really enjoyed the canyon swing. The staff there have a really good job, as all they have to do is mess with your head and then push you off a cliff. The variety of jumps you can do is excellent and for me it was more fun than the Nevis bungee, which was more of a mental challenge. After you've... More

Best experience! I had so much fun! All the guys were amazing! I did the tandem forward swing first which was really great. Then I did a solo backwards swing. Backwards is good for the multishot photo and the tandem was good for the weight (I think I swung more). I don't think one was better than the other -... More

That first 10 seconds after you leap will probably change your perception of fear for the rest of your life...but once the slack is gone from the rope, it's pretty sick swinging around a large canyon... That, and I feel the guys working the machines love their jobs. Makes the whole atmosphere even better especially when people are doing this... More
