About
Thrill seekers will love riding Queenstown’s Nevis Swing. After a thorough safety briefing you’ll be released from a 525-foot-high (160-meter) platform, and get up to speeds of 75 mph (120 kph). Enjoy the beautiful views of the Nevis River Valley as you swing through it. Don’t worry about driving yourself out to the swing site, which is about a 40-minute drive from Queenstown, as return transfers from the city are included.

What to expect
Meet your guide in central Queenstown for transport to the Nevis Swing. The 40-minute drive takes you through the high country en route to the Nevis Swing site located above the Nevis River. You can go solo or ride in tandem with a friend, or simply be a spectator. On arrival, you’ll receive a safety briefing and slip into a secure harness before following your guide across a catwalk to the 525-foot-high (160-meter) enclosed platform suspended on cables in midair between the cliffs. Feeling the fear yet? Wait until your guide secures you to the swing mechanism, which lifts you out from the launch deck above the canyon floor.  The real adrenaline-pumping action begins when you’re released into a 100-foot (30-meter) free fall. Reaching speeds up to 75 mph (120 kph), you’ll suddenly sway into a 985-foot (300-meter) arc over the Nevis River valley. You also have the option to ride forward, backward or upside down! Once you stop swinging, you'll be winched back up to the platform.  Photos and videos are available for purchase following your ride on the Nevis Swing. Your half-day tour ends with return transport to Queenstown via shuttle.

Unforgettable!
Jan 2021 • Couples
From the moment we stepped onto the bus we had an absolute blast! Me and my partner did this yesterday and it’ll definitely go down as one of the most crazy and unforgettable things we’ve ever done. I booked on as a spectator but changed my mind when we got to the jump site - the staff were super friendly and understood that I was terrified and double checked I definitely wanted to pay to do the jump as it’s non-refundable. They let us do the swing second as they could see I was nervous which was great - I might have chickened out otherwise! They counted us down, but you can opt for a surprise release. The guys at the bungy site were super friendly, relaxed and professional. We all had a great laugh and there were some great tunes playing to get us pumped. We had a great group of people doing the jump which definitely added to the experience! We also bought the video and photos for $65, but if you have a wrist or chest strap you can take your own GoPro with you (I didn’t have my attachment unfortunately!). Thank you everyone at Nevis Swing! Definitely won’t be seeing you again but it was a blast

Push your boundaries
Nov 2020
This was definitely outside my comfort zone as I'm not great with heights, but the staff are funny and very friendly and put you at ease. Meet the bungy bus in town and drive to the bungy set up. Drive was good also, driver very friendly. Took 20 odd minutes. Felt very safe as they weigh you and everyone double checks which makes you feel safe in their hands. I was thrilled that I did it with my partner and it was a blast. Nice to push the boundaries of what you can do. Take your lunch or snacks with you as you can put your bag in a locker and when waiting for the group to finish you can sit outside and have your lunch which was nice. Have a small shop with tshirts etc for purchase and can buy video and photos there also. A challenge but quite thrilled to have done it. All the staff we dealt with were really positive and nice, made it a great day.

We had an absolute blast with the team at the Nevis Swing from the get go our bus driver Skinny provided the laughs and good local insight into the region. The platform team were great! Alex was great building up the suspense with good chat, Terrence had some sweet dance moves, and Eva who brought us back on land. Would recommend anyone thinking of doing it to pull the trigger you won't regret it!

Must do!

I am so glad we got to do the Nevis swing, we were lucky enough to do it before lock down and what an experience it was! We felt perfectly safe throughout and the staff made us feel at ease, my husband was terrified but they had a great sense of humour and were brilliant at helping calm everyones nerves.

Holy Sh*t
Jul 2019
My wife planned this so I had no idea what I was doing. Simple put we got strapped into a swing, walked to the edge of a platform and released dropping about 100 feet straight down and then swinging over 900 foot arc. Simply crazy. The views are just amazing, absolutely beautiful.

Just DO IT! Seriously.
Feb 2020
I almost chickened out last minute but I'm so happy I didn't! My husband and I have had this on our bucket list forever and finally in New Zealand, we had to do it!! From beginning to end the staff was great and definitely reassuring when I needed it. It was one of the coolest thing I've done and it 100% made our entire trip! I 10000% recommend to anyone considering it!

Truly Epic.
Mar 2020 • Friends
This was top of our ‘to do’ list in New Zealand and after a 27hour journey we swung straight in on day 1.
We took the bus provided from Queenstown and we did stop off for the zipwire on the way up, however it works out to be a 40minute journey from Queenstown to the swing itself. All in all we weren’t at the swing it’s self for a long period of time however it was quite quiet when we went so we only had to wait for about 4 people to swing in front of us, the guys/girls that work there are so chilled and fun, they really know whether to wind you up and say ‘oh I wonder if your harnessed in correctly’ to making you feel safe and secure depending on our you’re feeling.
My friend was quite nervous (even though it was her idea) and I was quite relaxed and looking forward to it, and we both thoroughly enjoyed it, such an experience and the videos and photos available are brilliant. We both also wore GoPros.
Highly recommended.

Amazing experience, very professional staff!
We did the swing and was totally mind blowing. Beside the adrenaline rush and the excitement that comes with this activity, I have to say that the most important thing is that I felt safe and very well taken care of at all times. The safety process is very deep and they double check everything! Nothing is left to chance which made my experience very enjoyable. Plus, they take pictures and videos (for a fee) which gives us the full package. Highly recommended and kudos to this company that does such a great job!
