After reading all of the reviews I decided that the Nevis Swing was the one to do as a tandem with my partner. Due to AJHackett being such a large business it's a great opportunity to buy a combo package and do one of the other adrenaline kicks in Queenstown. The staff member who clipped us in was lovely and... More

The staff were all professional, humorous and efficient which made a scary experience at least 'comforting'. You can jump on your own, or in a pair. I believe they throw in a free jump if you went naked? The Nevis Swing is the scariest thing I've ever done, much scarier than skydiving. Highly recommend it to anyone. One of my... More

I loved it!! My overall experience was excellent. The staff couldn't be more helpful and reassuring. Settled all nerves I may have had. I would be putting this on my must do list for a returning visit. The bus ride is an eye opener lovely scenic views along the way. Then onto private property climbing along a mountain side to...

I would recommend as a must do for those who need adrenaline rush. I found it to be scarier than 15,000 feet skydiving. Though its over in seconds but you will always remember that free fall through out your life.

AJ Hackett rides are so well organised. I was totally impressed with the staff at headquarters and at the actual ride. Very friendly and helpful. I felt completely safe so I could enjoy the ride. Free falling from the platform into the gully was amazing and the swing is just incredible. So glad I did it and got the dvd... More

A bus trip up to the private property and the bunny and swing are over a dry, large canyon. Really well organised and felt very safe, but not safe enough that it was boring! Really enjoyed it.

I did the Nevis Swing because you can do a Bungee Jump anywhere but I had never heard of a swing like this. We waited around the headquarters for a while which is a nifty place and had comfortable bean bags to sit on. They weigh you there which I didn't know so don't eat a heavy meal beforehand ;)... More

I opted for the swing as I didn't have the nerve to do the bungy. And I had the most amazing time, there was a delay because the bus broke Down coming to collect us from the AJHackett base in Queenstown, but there is free wifi and apple computers for you to use to entertain yourself. Once at Nevis, the... More

Wasn't keen on being strapped soley around the legs for the bungy so opted for the swing. this was awesome and totally worth the money, I wanted to do it again but my partner wasn't game enough. Its only $40 if you wanted to do it again. Definitely will be doing it again next time im down.

I booked this months before traveling to NZ, fully expecting to back out the day of (not a fan of falling from cliffs/edges). The wife and I forced ourselves down to their headquarters in downtown Queenstown, which is a very nice venue, by the way. We checked in, got on the bus, and drove out to the canyon. The buses...
