We went up the gondola at 9 am (short line) to take advantage of early bird price. We had called to reserve the day before as we had trouble from hotel room trying to book online. Be aware that if you're there for a short visit, take advantage of good weather & go that day. Of the 3 days we... More

If you choose to do this ( I highly recommend you do), go on a clear day and wear sunglasses, it looks scary but once you jump off the cliff the views just take over and all fears abate. I chose this over bun-jee jumping since it lasted longer and the views are a lot nicer. Even if you go... More

This really felt like the ultimate way to experience Queenstown and the mesmerising views of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables. It was amazing to be gliding through the air with the breeze passing my face, in the brilliant sunny weather, admiring the incredible views before my eyes. It was truly breathtaking and something I will never forget. It was the... More

Great buzz. Very professional and keep u informed thru out. Fantastic views over QT. Gondala included in price. Recommend early bird special for cheaper price. All good pilots I'm sure but special thanks to Tim on a great flight.

Three of us did this out of the blue - we hadn't planned to but walking past them going to the luge tempted us and we signed up. We weren't sorry, the experience was highly enjoyable. We did hang gliding with a different operator, and hang gliding probably edged it for the flying experience, but we were glad we did... More

I had planned to go skydiving not once, not twice, but three times--and each time ended up being canceled due to the cloud layer. So, decided to give paragliding a try instead and so glad we did (my partner came along too). Such a thrilling experience, yet also very calming at the same time. Our pilots, both named Todd, were...

I'm so glad I did it now! I should do it long time ago. Today I was flying with Mike, great pilot! He promise me to landed in one piece, and he did. Nice man, but a bit quite! I was very nervous for start, it was started to rain too. Made me more nervous, but once I got up... More

Included in the price of the ticket you get a ride up the gondola to the paraglide place which is nice, when you do get up there they are efficient and i met my glide master Dean who talked me through it when we went up. The glide is amazing and i loved every minute, they tailor what you want... More

If you go one place in NZ, go to Queenstown. If you do one thing in Queenstown, do this. Did it on a whim after taking quiet gondola ride to top of mountain. Loved it so much in 2011 that I went back and did it again in 2014 only this time my wife did it too in celebration of... More
