We were pretty nervous about doing this but it was so worth it! It was the highlight of my trip to NZ. We did the tandem swing and this apparently makes you go even faster. It was pretty daunting stepping off the side. We went backwards which was exhilarating. The staff there were really great and made you feel pretty... More

Went here with my partner for the tandem swing. Was extremely scary up the top and getting ready, tho the staff were great and made us feel safe the entire time. They were very encouraging. Chard was the one who got us ready and locked into harnesses and was amazing. Would definitely recommend, an amazing experience and we are really... More

There are not many words that describes this other than you MUST do it. The free fall before the Swing catches is outstanding.

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
