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...

We were looking for a "Bungee" thrill without the shock on the legs, so we did the SWING instead! Thrilling walk out to the gondola, then hooked up into the safety harness. Sit back into the harness, pose for the pictures, then a 45 meter freefall then a 300 mteter swing across the canyon!

As all the rides managed by AJ Hacket Company, they are very organized and professional. You really feel safe besides the thrilling scene. Very exciting ride!
