The para-gliders are friendly, fun people. They are very open to share their experiences and knowledge. This probably the kiwis' character? They are patience and safe people also. Waiting for the best time to para glide. Although it takes longer time but it is definitely worth it. It felt so comfortable in the air although I get a bit motion... More

Our pilots were Mike and Todd and they were great talking us through the process before hand and during and shooting some great video. This is an... More

What a great experience! I managed to persuade my wife to do this activity, she was very apprehensive about it. We booked the GForce paragliding through the i-SITE shop in Queenstown which meant we got a complimentary ride on the Gondola (twice). Our pilots (Dean and Shyn?) were great, they expained exactly what was going to happen and what we... More

Gforce paragliding is a great way to see Queenstown from a bird's eye view. If you are nervous about skydiving or bungy jumping, or if you're just ready for chill activity this is perfect. The harness is actually really comfy and feels really safe. To make it a bit more thilling your pilot can do spins and dips.My glider Richard... More

Literally that is how I felt with this memorable experience. A great way to complete your day at Queenstown's beautiful Skyline location. A must do for all ages. Thanks so much to our pilots Todd and Richard. Nice guys. You will find the booking office at the summit skyline behind the cafe. Price is $199 pp but worth every cent.... More

Must do! Great views, awesome pilots who even though they were really busy didn't make the process feel rushed at all (big thanks to Brady and Deano). The views alone were worth the $199. Highly recommend doing the "roller coaster" moves. Thanks gforce team!
