The staff are so nice and funny and help to make the experience even greater, the swing itself is adrenalin pumping but with a scenic twist. 100% AWESOME

I did tandem & individually and it was well worth the price for a one-on-one experience. Staff are reasonably nice with not pushing you off the edge until you're ready. You can jump off in all sorts of ways - with props too if you choose! Greatest bungee experience so far!

Heaps of fun....once you gain the courage to step off! Great staff with a great sense of humour. Video & photos done very well. Well worth doing the extra swing for additional $35!!

Very scary but worth it. Professional staff made sure I didn't chicken out and go home. Took the video home to show everyone, great quality. Transport from town is also organised well!

I had a fantastic time on the Canyon Swing. The shuttle out to the site was quick and easy with entertainment both going and coming back. All of the guides / support team did a great job in their respective roles. The second jump is a must as its a very reasonable extra $35! I even left my phone up... More
