Brilliant experience for my husband and 14 year old son. Excellent friendly and professional staff. Short walk 0.3956m to Fox. Stunning views. You can easily take your own video of your loved one taking the ride from behind the safety barriers. Would definitely recommend. Round trip is about 2 hours.

I did the Canyon Fox and then Canyon Swing. Screamed my head off the entire time but WOW, what a rush! Shout out to the guys for toying with me from start to finish, you were great even though I hated you at the time! The Canyon Swing was way scarier than I had anticipated but that rush and that...

Did the zip line today . Was the most awesome experience. The staff were great , friendly & had a humorous side! Everything went smoothly and we were back bang on time . Would definitely recommend it & wish had enough time to do the swing too.

Tried the canyon swing today.. This has got to be the best activity in Queenstown! It feels like a bungy at first and then the swing swoops you perfectly so there is no bounce. It really felt like the perfect thrill! With so many ways to jump off my partner and I first went tandem and then just had to... More

We did the Canyon Zip line with the drop at the start and it was a ball. Staff were really friendly, not pushy, chatty and great to talk to. Really professionally run with all aspects explained clearly. A great experience I had the pleasure of sharing with my kids (17, 18 and 13 yo's)

Must-Do for thrill seekers!! Unique experience for jumping off a cliff and free-falling! +70 styles to jump. I signed up for one jump, chose one of the scariest options 'the pin-drop' and loved it so much I did a second jump 'backwards'! (good value as only a small amount extra for second jump and photos) - don't get me wrong... More

So much fun with these happy guys. So many styles to choose! Just after I finished my jump, I wanted another jump immediately  I think that’s why these guys provide a $45 second jump option, lol. I’m local and from my point of view canyon swing is definitely a queenstown must do!

I'm a queenstown local so I've been thrown off and out off a lot of things but you guys are undoubtedly my favourite! Massive shoutout to Dougie and Thales(?) for making my afternoon absolutely hilarious! Easily one of the best deals in town with a second swing only $45. From start to finish it's such an experience, as the person... More
