Staff were brilliant and helpful! The swing were so worth it, perfect for thrill-seekers. Did it upside down and backwards, so worth it. All the extras such as the cap and photos & videos were perfect, a bit pricey but so worth it. Unforgettable :)

My first jump was so much fun, I went again tried it backward. The people that work here made this adventure even more thrilling and fun. They definitely know what they are doing and that created a sense of calm that went along with all the excitement. All the little extras (the cap, the photos & videos, the little piece... More

Did the swing with my teenage daughter straight after the bungy jump & it was great fun. Not as intense as the jump i don't think, but still a real rush & even better when you can do it with someone in the swing harness with you. I would definitely recommend it, & its a must do if you are... More

We were really looking forward to trying out the Nevis Bungy Swing on our honeymoon trip to new zealand and it was worth the wait! The swing can be done with 2 people which is cool and you can sit in almost any position. It is located about 40 mins drive from Queenstown and the company will pick you up... More

The staff at the office in town were very helpful and answered any questions I had. There was a bus leaving in 15 minutes so decided to just go for it. The bus ride up to the site was very scenic and at the end very steep (I was surprised the bus could go up it). I was the first... More

Went for the combo and was not disappointed. The staff recommended going backwards since I'd already gone forwards for the bungy... my friend came with me and also did upside down facing the river... crazy! It was so thrilling, my only thought when falling was "when does the swing start?", LOL, but it did kick in and it was brilliant!... More

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
