The staff were so chill and fun. I'm scared of heights but this is not scary at all! So relaxing when you are in the air, we did the higher take off option which meant more air time, so worth it!

I came by myself in October. The service was great, and they gave us over 24 hours of warning for postponing my flight due to the weather to give us time to plan the rest of our visit to Queenstown. I was the only person in our group doing the higher takeoff so it felt very personal. I'd highly recommend the instructional package as this gives you an opportunity to fly the paraglider and is a very good price (only $15NZD). My pilot was constantly videoing all of the highlights of the flight, e.g. Me flying, tricks, etc. Overall a great experience and would highly reccomend this for people who wanted to do activities in the air but didn't want the free fall.

Really enjoyed my paragliding experience in August. Unfortunately we couldn't jump from coronet peak due to the weather, however they easily accommodated an alternative jump point up the crown ranges. Was still a great view and look forward to a coronet peak next time :)

Such an incredible experience! Would highly recommend to anyone in Queenstown. Luke was the best pilot and we had such a cool flight! Thought I would have been scared but was all excitement. Had so much fun now I want to learn to paraglide solo!
