Had the early bird flight which is 10am in winter, woke to some cloud but turned out to be a spectacular morning by the time we were taking off. Pilots were awesome and very friendly which makes the whole experience so easy. Can rave on about the reviews but won't do them justice, have to see them, a must do!

A must do in Queenstown!! Good bang for your buck. Really suitable for all ages and types of people as well. You can make it adventurous and adrenaline filled or very relaxing, enjoying the views and sights of Queenstown. The staff at Gforce are incredible.

I am 58 and usually reserved but was tempted when watching younger people tackling this. The jump was booked at the waterfront as the cable car ride is included in the ticket, which is a good saving . My pilot was Shane and he calmly talked me through safety issues and what needed to be done. The launch is something... More

The best location for this incredible flight, amazing views of Queenstown from up there. Graceful, floating feeling & exhilarating at the same time. If you have not done it, the take off is smooth & easy, the landing is simple too. Its very comfortable in the harness, just taking a seat really. Tim was awesome, talking me through it all.... More

Arrived in Queenstown on a beautiful day and was able to book in last minute to fly from the top of the gondola. Price of gondola is included- don't pay twice (as I nearly did!) and you get a stamp at the top so you can go up again. My paraglide was with Shayn who was really friendly, chatty and... More

I went paragliding with Richard, and not only was he very funny he also let me steer the paraglide for a bit going down. It was fantastic, amazing, surreal and a bit thrilling! It was an amazingly beautiful view over Queentsown and it's surroundings, and compared to the skydive that I did in Abel Tasman (which was also fantastic!), paragliding... More

Thanks to Tim, Brady, and Mike for taking our family - including our 5-year-old daughter who loved it! - on a spectacular ride! We had great fun and saw the Queenstown area from a whole different, and absolutely beautiful, point of view.

As a pilot, I spent several minutes discussing rules, regulations and procedures before deciding to sign up. I felt very comfortable with what I heard. I convinced my wife and two traveling companions (none of which had ever flown before) that conditions that day were perfect and that they would never have that great an opportunity again. As a result,... More

Girlfriend and I spur of the moment decided to do paragliding after watching some of the flyers go by from the top of the gondola in the afternoon. G force was able to revalidate our gondola passes to come up the next morning, which saved us some money. Plus we got the early bird special we saved us even more.... More
