Queenstown is known for adventure and G Force certainly delivers. Neither of us have been in a paraglider before and were both leery of jumping off a mountain. However, the experts at G Fore put our concerns at ease and we went for it. Since bungy jumping was out of the question we decided to go for it and we... More

Went with my 2 kids, aged 12 and 14. The hike up to the peak was pretty tough but luckily it was short enough. The pilots were very friendly and chatting with us on the way up. The takeoff was surprisingly straight forward. The view is simply exhilarating. Took some photos and tried a few manoeuvres. Can tell that the... More

My boyfriend and I were excited to try some paragliding in Queenstown and our experience did not disappoint!! The weather conditions were not great by the gondola so the team transported us to paraglide from Coronet Peak. My pilot was Guy and he was the BEST!! Besides a gentle glide, we got to do some more thrilling loops. Guy took... More

WARNING: Book this online!! We decided to pop to the gondola where they are situated to book as we where going that way for a hike. As stated on their website, you can book there too. Once getting there though, there was no specific area / booth for bookings, so I asked a staff member of the gondola where we... More

GavinQT, Owner at Gforce Paragliding, responded to this review

Hi lyndaholgate. Thank you for your review on trip advisor. I apologise that you found your experience in the Skyline terminal frustrating. As you suggest, booking online in advance on nzgforce.com is a much better option. Gforce Paragliding is a completely separate company to the Skyline Gondola. We are not permitted to have a booking desk in the Skyline's bottom... More

Best flight of the season! Paragliding is great fun and relaxing, there is no free fall like sky diving or bungy so there is nothing to scare you. DO IT! Worth it for that view! Ben my pilot was great and told me a little about the techniques of flying and took us high into the mountains.

Didn't know how I would go on this as I would never bungy jump or tandem skydive but this was just fabulous. The boys were so professional and put me at ease with everything that was happening. Without a doubt I can't recommend this highly enough. If your in QT give this a go I guarantee you won't forget it.... More

But one off the most amazing things I have ever done in my life. As soon as my feet left the ground and I slid back into my seat harness I was so thankful I followed through. Thanks Gav for such an amazing experience. For anyone who has though they could do this but stalled. Jump in feet first as... More

Paraglided with my two teenagers today and it was a highlight of our trip. I rode with Dominick and he was great. Very professional and obviously experienced with a love of the job. He took time to explain each step along the way so there were no surprises. Just the thrill of the ride at a level of excitement custom... More
