Hi 10cent coin. I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed that you were unable to paraglide with us yesterday due to weather conditions. As you mention in your review, safety is our primary concern at Gforce. Weather conditions can (and do) change rapidly...More

Top notch pilots and an amazing view to look at going down! Would love for it to be a tad longer but I recommend nonetheless.

It is a once in a lifetime experience that one should not miss if visiting queenstown. The pilots we had were amazingly skilled and made the experience worthwhile. I would definitely do it again when I visit this beautiful place.

Hi. Skippers Canyon half day tour. Absolutely amazing. Can include a jet boat element but suggest you do Buller Gorge one instead if you're in that area, as it's the best one by far.
