The only thing that beat it was the Nevis Bungy :) My friend and I had booked the bungy but weren't planning on doing the swing because we were catching a flight out of Queenstown that afternoon. We ended up having some extra time and were on such an adrenaline high after the bungy that we decided to do the... More

If you're thinking about doing this swing, DO IT! You will not be dissapointed. The team out there are fantastic and know what they are doing, which made it an even better experience. Thanks team!

The Nevis swing is a must do for any thrill seekers but also anyone too scared to do the Nevis Bungy (basically me). They offer different ways to do the swing (backwards, upside down, tandem etc) and all the staff from the bus drivers, people working inside the building and the people on the controls are amazing! I did the... More

We did this as a last minute decision as we had already bungy jumped in Taupo and didn't think we would bother doing a swing. We had a day to spare and thought we might try it out. It turned out to be one of the best activities we did! I am very scared of heights so I was very... More

Even if you're afraid of heights like I am, give this a go. I had almost as much trouble walking out over the ramp to the jump platform as I did doing the swing, my fear of heights is that great. But it's achievable. There is so much more thrill to be had doing this when there's a good dose... More

This was one of the best things I have ever done. All the staff were awesome, from the guy who drove the bus up to Nevis point to the 2 guys in charge of the swing. They could tell I was a bit nervous (how could you not be) but put me at ease with their friendly demeanour. Have been... More

I bought a combo package that allowed me to do both the Nevis swing and the Nevis bungy once each. After arriving at the Nevis jump centre, I was directed to do the bungy jump first and then do the Nevis swing. After completing the bungy jump I was on an adrenaline high but waited around for a bit to... More

And that's not just the actual swing but the views from where you take off too. I'd already done the world's biggest bungy jump in Macau before taking on the biggest swing. The swing didn't quite match the bungy but was pretty close thanks to the staff and their little tricks to take your attention away before hitting the release... More

Did the Nevis bungy and then the swing with my partner. Staff were friendly and very safety conscious. We both loved it and had a good laugh together after all screaming she did at the beginning. Well worth doing with the package deal you can buy with the bungy.

I did not do the swing my daughter and her best friend did it. They loved it so much they went for the 2nd swing. Insane! Fiddy who operated the swing made everyone have a wonderful time - with each ride being different. So well done!
