I highly recommend this to anyone. I must warn you though. If you think this is a lot easier than the bungy you are so so wrong. By far the scariest of the two. You can go backwards, upside down and forwards. We went forwards and twisted. Little basically you need to have ur feet out not in which caused... More

I took 2 teenagers (14 and 15) for the Nevis Combo - the 134m bungy followed by the 300m arc/70m drop swing. The canyon swing had been on my bucket list since the first time I saw it on YouTube, so I was keen on this. The canyon is a 45 minute scenic ride out from Queenstown, through what looks... More

This was so much better than bungy! Standing on the edge ready to go is a little nerve racking... The staff are fantastic - I would love to do it again.

The Nevis Swing is one of a kind experience, I will never forget it and hope I can do it again one day as these type of activities make you feel ALIVE! I booked it with my cousin 10 minutes after arriving to the crazy city of Queenstown and I recommend you booking it straight away as well so you... More

Did this as a combo with the bungy, just as an afterthought really. Ended up enjoying this at least as much as the bungy itself. A very different, much more relaxed experience than the bungy, but awesome in its own right. It lacks the buildup and the fear factor but is great fun. The crew were amazing and possibly made...

Me and my best friend who are in our early 50's did the "Tandem" backwards and we had so much fun! Alan and James made our swing less scary. We thought the swing is frightening but it wasn't at all! We bought the video and the pictures afterwards. We will definitely do this again given another chance to visit Queenstown.

I went on the Nevis Swing with my mother right after I had went on the Nevis Bungy alone. My mother thought that the swing was exceptional, but I was slightly less impressed. I still thought that it was an amazing experience though, all in all.

Went there with the intention of doing it once, but got there and alan and james we're brilliant! Made it so easy and knew how to distract you! First time was awsome and since we were there we thought we might aswell do it again for $40! Well worth it! Thanks again guys for making it very unforgetable 👌
