Read reviews of all parasailing/ paragliding operations in Queenstown and was happy with this as my choice. Did 9 AM earlybird special: gondola opens at 9 AM and you must pay 33 NZD roundtrip (they stamp your hand to let you come up again later same day) so it's an extra cost. Important to note that once off gondola it's... More

Had an amazing flight at Gforce. Gondola trip up was great (though an extra $33,worth it) and the view was fantastic. After a quick weigh in, Steve (my pilot) took me to the edge of a soft , grassy hill with a gentle slope leading to ...nothing! Most gentle take off ever. Weather was perfect (I took advantage of the... More

Really enjoyed my first paragliding trip with Clem. She stopped me panicking and was very professional throughout! Will definitely try paragliding again!

I had such a great time paragliding. You get to see the best views of the whole city and lake with the Remarkables in the distance. My pilot Steve was experienced, fun, and made the flight great! I would definitely recommend it to everyone!

My daughter and I had an awesome experience paragliding with GForce. Really good experienced pilots, Ben ad Clem, made us very comfortable. They took their time, guided us through the process and took us for an awesome ride. Did some wonderful turns as well. We took the early bird flight and it was well organised. We even got free TShirts.... More

This was our first time experiencing paragliding and it was amazing! Thomas and Ben were our pilots, they gave us clear instructions and made it a very memorable experience. I even tried a few flips and turns which took the experience up a notch, Thomas did ask if I was OK before flipping and turning. The flips and turns makes... More

Thanks Steve for making my first paragliding experience so good! Wind came up which meant relocating to Cardrona but we think it was actually better out there. Great pics too. Can't wait to do another one - in winter next time

After 2 weather cancellations I eventually got up in the air for my first ever paraglide, which was well worth the wait. 'Brummie Steve' was very professional and if you have not done this before he will make it feel easy. If you want something to remember ask for the 'corkscrew'! Anyone in Queenstown should do this it was amazing!
