The canyon swing came very highly recommended to me by multiple people so I figured I couldn't miss out. I went with a group of 6 other friends and we had an amazing time...we all ended up going for 2 jumps/swings! The team is super-friendly and funny and the location is beautiful. I did the slide first and the backwards... More

One of the most extreme activities I've ever done. Tandem forward jump was great for a starter jump for those of us who are terrified. Staff were fantastic and photos and videos were worth the additional cost. Terrifying, but heaps of fun.

Im not a fan of heights, at all, however I really wanted to do something to get out of my comfort zone. This was the best experience ever and felt so surreal. The instructors were so funny too scaring everyone. It just made the experience so much more carefree and exciting! Will definitely do this one again. Highly recommended :)

What a rush. The staff was great and helped me through being a bit scared. Ended up loving it. We went with a group of 6 and we all had a great time. Must do in Queenstown.

Absolutely worth it - best done in the Morning when you are full of adrenalin. The team that look after you are first rate and take safety seriously despite scaring the poop out of you in a humorous way. Time it with your Shotover Jet Trip so you only have one bus trip to worry about. Bookings required

I did a tandem jump with my son to celebrate his 13th birthday. It was the best!!! What a memory to take home. So scary walking up to the edge and working up the courage to jump. The staff were awesome, safety was priority and jokes to ease the nerves were great. What an adrenalin rush and exhilarating experience not... More

Did two jumps and loved it, wish I'd done more but can always go back! The staff were great and took your mind of the jump.

So we worked up the nerve to do this even though we didn't think we would! We chose this canyon swing over the Nevis Arc Swing because all the locals (who have of course done both) recommended it over Nevis. We have to say that we were not disappointed - it was a really great adrenaline rush! We woke up... More
