Owner description: Not all companies are created equal. Our exceptional style of service is all part of your experience, our goal; to put a smile on your face either from fear or delight! Our 109m high Canyon Swing with a 60m freefall, and 182m high Canyon Fox with a 5m drop are just the ticket to get your heart pumping. Whichever way you jump, launch or get released, there’s a fun or scary style for you. Gravity is a toy. Come out and play.

Had a great afternoon with the Canyon swing crew.

Very hard to make up your mind on what swing to do!

The staff are great! Really help those who are nervous - quirky pictures on your hand will have you puzzled for hours, but bring a huge grin to your face.

Really look forward to visiting when are next in Qtown.

Free fall-160 km/h jump into a canyon. You can't beat this on an adrenalin scale! You can choose between different jumps. Kindly you are allowed to pick your favourite song which will be played loudly when you jump (will also be the soundtrack on your DVD). Trust me you wouldn't remember otherwise!
Any extra jump is only an aditional $20.
Scary but interesting how the brain stops working when you stand at the edge of the platform. I have said things I don't remember (evidence on dvd). It will get better each time.. I ended up jumping 3 times.
Staff is very funny and friendly.
If you are looking for the ultimate thrill... this is it!!

What an experience. I have an outrageous fear of heights but the staff were brilliant and put me totally at ease. I went for the "easy" cutaway option and loved it. What a feeling when they finally let you drop. One of the best things I've ever done!

I was not at all prepared for this and was almost thinking about backing out - but by the time we arrived at the canyon and I was strapped up all ready to go I was looking forward to it. I didn't realise beforehand though that there was a 60m freefall before you actually swing! The guys running it were really funny, cracking jokes and trying to get everyone in a good mood. I did a tandem cutaway with a friend, pretty basic compared to some of the other jump styles but still scary and lots of fun! Definitely worth doing!
