My wife and i had a superb time at the swing. Chard and Chelsea were excellent hosts with good humour, but with no compromise to safety. We went both forward and backwards and both gave the massive adrenaline rush we were looking for! Good banter from Chard with the 2nd drop as well!

I thought this might be a bit tame after the bungy but nooooooo not at all. Go backwards! :) Really cool and polite staff that added to the overall experience. I did a tanden with the bf and it was a great shared experience!

I did a tandem swing with my husband and then we both did a jump on our own. This is by far the best one I have done so far, the harness is really comfy and does not dig in. The staff here are just awesome and we both loved it

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
