We were looking for a "Bungee" thrill without the shock on the legs, so we did the SWING instead! Thrilling walk out to the gondola, then hooked up into the safety harness. Sit back into the harness, pose for the pictures, then a 45 meter freefall then a 300 mteter swing across the canyon!

As all the rides managed by AJ Hacket Company, they are very organized and professional. You really feel safe besides the thrilling scene. Very exciting ride!

This is a great adventure for all who seek adrenaline fixes. For young and older adventures you need to try this. This organization is focused on safety and fun! My son and I did a tandem swing and it was the highlight of my trip. He also did the Nevis Bungy jump at the same location.

The journey to the swing was another great example of the breathtaking New Zealand countryside. When we got to the site the staff were very friendly and professional. My wife and I decided on a tandem swing in the Honeymoon positions We were harnessed together and left the edge of the platform ready to swing 300m at this time I... More

I did Nevis Swing (upside down) 20 mins after Nevis Bungy. I wondered if it would feel a bit lame after the BIG buzz of the bunny, but I shouldn't have worried........It was AWESOME, too!!! The staff were fab. The photos and vid are great to show family/friends, who can't really appreciate how BIG it really is, until they see... More
