I've been thinking about bungy jumping for many years, but have never been able to satisfy myself that the stress placed on the body, by being bound only at the ankles, is completely safe. Last time I was in Queenstown a couple of years ago, I found out about this attraction and almost did it. This time, I decided to... More

Great experience. Seems very expensive for what you're actually doing but everyone will enjoy the jump. Choose your own style of jump or pick from a "menu". The 3 gentlemen on the platform are really professional and make sure you feel at ease. They also like to joke around if they know you can handle it. Do this with a... More

I done the swing Sunday 21st August. It was great I jumped of the ledge on the chair which was great. The guys were funny teasing you and joking about how unsafe it was, but it was completely safe and fun. After you can get a choice of photos, I loved the multi shot picture and purchased it; this is... More

Ok, I know QZ is a touristy town, and this is a touristy activity, but it was so much fun! My wife and I did the Shotover Jet Boat and Canyon Swing combo. The boat was super fun! It's a fast, fun, rollercoaster in a boat. My wife usually gets motion sick, but didn't even have any problems on that.... More

Much better than an old bungy jump! Walk into the main street shop, within a few minutes you're whisked away, no problems with parking or finding where it is.
