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!

This swing is huge! Compared to the bungys it lasts so much longer so in my opinion you get more for your money. Staff were friendly and constantly joking around which put your mind at ease.

Amazing crew looking after you, the experience was awesome. Definitely would recommend this to everyone especially since you can swing in tandem with your wife/partner.

Had our friend over from Aussie . So decided to show him Queenstown . Kicked of with the Nevis swing. He loved it so much he did twice . Good age bracket for 18 and up. Got his blood pumping well on this ride. Price is up there but well worth Not for the faint hearted .

I’ve just signed up to Trip Advisor to share on this very experience. I thought it a good idea when I forked out $320 for a tandem swing gift voucher with my partner for Christmas. On presenting it to her, I wasn’t surprised that she was not thrilled but thought I could get her to conquer this regardless. I made... More

I am so glad that we were the first of the day to swing. I think I would have chickened out if I saw someone else try it before us! I think it looks scarier than it actually is. When you are released is the scariest and then the swing evens out, and you realise just how far you have... More

Would pick the world's biggest swing any day... More

Just the thought of this made me very nervous because I'm not generally an adrenaline junky at heart. I like speed and fast machines, but not heights so much. However, how often to you get to New Zealand and how often can you do this with your teen daughter? So, we did it. The people at AJ Hackett were professional,... More

Let me start out by saying that I am relatively afraid of heights…it is something I am working to overcome, but if nothing else, this really helped with taming that fear! We did an early swing, registered the day before and all happened very smoothly. We met at the station building in downtown Queenstown, they weighed us, told us what... More
