I'm afraid of heights but I did it! The crews are all professionals. I feel extremely safe with all the harness on. They will double check on the harness. And for those who are afraid of heights, you won't even know when they let you go which is a good thing rather than you jumping on your own. Killer view... More

Whoa, what a crazy experience! Seriously cool, and definitely competing with that of the bungy! Honestly, this fits any age group, and releases your inner child. IT'S A BIG SWING! It's crazy high, with a crazy drop which leaves you breathless and doing this weird soundless scream and it's just great. Well worth it.

This was super fun and epitomises what NZ adventure is all about. Only the Kiwis could dream this one up and get away with it! I have never bee a fan of bungy - it is all over so quickly, but the swing is another level. You actually free fall over 30 meters before you swing - which alone is... More

Was so upset with my husband when he got me a ticket because I am terrified of heights however on doing it this was one of the best things ever. So much fun I had to do it again straight away. Did a tandem with my husband. The dudes that get you kitted up and push the button are super... More

Did this in combo with the bungy and it was awesome. The swing is less adrenaline fuelled and more just fun. You can swing in a number of different directions which is cool.

Absolutely awesome and incredibly safe experience. A friend and I opted for the most financially reasonable tandem option. It was not cheap but these guys really run a slick operation and the photos from the swing are stunning. Also really enjoyed my free hat which has made it's way back to the UK with me. Thrillseekers only, not for the... More

My husband and I loved the tandem Nevis swing! A perfect honeymoon experience. The first drop is exhilarating and then you can enjoy the view as you swing back and forth. Staff was great. Spend the extra money on the pictures and video - they are really well done, and we've had a blast showing them to friends.
