“Safe, efficient, enjoyable and very memorable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

I opted to do the Kawaru Bridge bungy and it turned out to be one of the better decisions I made at Queenstown. This is a well oiled machine that is obviously very experienced, both in terms of the way they run their operations and also how they handle nervous customers.

The staff really know how to soothe your nerves and make this an easy and enjoyable experience. Seeing how those before me were managed made it very easy for me and the entire experience and the adrenaline rush after made this a very memorable experience. Yes, this is extremely commercial as well, but it helps that no one is too pushy and you can decide what you want to pay for.

“What a rush!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

AJ Hackett rides are so well organised. I was totally impressed with the staff at headquarters and at the actual ride. Very friendly and helpful. I felt completely safe so I could enjoy the ride. Free falling from the platform into the gully was amazing and the swing is just incredible. So glad I did it and got the dvd to prove it. Awesome.

“Good professional team”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

This was the third bungy i'd ever done, but my first one at the Nevis Highwire. Great professional team. I was the last jumper as i was lightest, waiting around to jump gets cold, so dress warmly! I wasn't able to release my legs after the jump and ended up with petechial hemorrhaging, but otherwise a great experience. Buy the photos!

“Awesome!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

A bus trip up to the private property and the bunny and swing are over a dry, large canyon. Really well organised and felt very safe, but not safe enough that it was boring! Really enjoyed it.

“Go for it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

I jumped 9 years ago and, outside of having my wonderful daughter, it was the highlight of my life! I did the Nevis bungy and highly recommend it. Go big or go home. Just be prepared for when the hook comes down to pull you back up. It jerks and sounds like something breaks. :) I also got pictures and the video. I am so glad I got the video! That is a must! This requires that I select a date, but does not go very far back. I visited in 2005.
