It's such an unforgettable experience to do paragliding in Queenstown with Gforce last March this year, 2014. :) I got a discount because of their early bird deal (first flight in the morning). Great value for money. When we were up there, I was amazed with the beautiful nature and breathtaking view of Queenstown. I like it when we were... More

I went up and did a paraglide whilst on my honeymoon. Tim was my pilot and was fantastic from explaining all the bits and pieces and safety requirements to giving me an amazing glide with dips and turns. The landing was surprisingly smooth and easy and overall it was just the most awesome experience. I brought the CD with photos... More

A group of us went up the gondola to luge ride and 3 of us ended up paragliding! The team at Gforce were great. Very professional and funny but also took time to explain things to one of our group who was a little hesitant! The views were great as were the video and photos we got in our pack.... More

The actual paraglide was great, no issue there, but the lead up to it was just poor. We went to the booth to ask whether a spot was available for two of us and was told yes, no problem so we booked and paid and was given a time for around 30 minutes later. Arriving back at the prescribed time,... More

I wanted to do paragliding in anywhere. Fortunately, I had a chance to experience paragliding during my travel in Queenstown. You know, Queenstown is very beautiful town, especially, if It is autumn. Plus, see the Queenstown from the sky? Oh god, It's perfect. In addition, if you want, you can feel the exciting from flying. I experienced 360 degree rolling... More

We decided to do paragliding on our last day in Queenstown, it was the way to finish this amazing trip. Mom was really nervous about the whole thing, but before she had time to worry, we were all up in the air and viewing the spectacular view of Queenstown already.

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!
