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.

Swore I’d never do anything like this... I’m not really the thrill-seeking type. My partner booked us in for the Nevis Swing as part of her birthday weekend. I was absolutely sh*tting myself. It became one of the most incredible things I’ve ever done in my life. Nothing can match the feeling of ploughing through that canyon at what feels like a million miles an hour, and yet it feels like an eternity. Was definitely the highlight of our trip. Staff were incredibly helpful and explained everything in a language we simpletons could understand. Kat our bus driver was a great laugh too! Stick this on the bucket list.

We were a party of 6. When the bus picked us we weren’t on the list but this was quickly rectified. The staff were friendly and made us feel at ease. We were very grateful to watch the two tandem swings and then all 6 of us were able to go out and watch our bungy jumper. This really added to the experience. Well worth the $$. Thank you for the awesome experience.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

SO much fun! All the staff their is amazing from the people in Queenstown, to the driver to the on site. My sister and I did the swing and she ended up doing the bungy jump on a whim! Everything is super safe/professional and they make you feel safe 100% of the time while also making it fun! I can't recommend enough. This is where bungy was invented so why not do it where it all started!! What an amazing experience :)

I was apprehensive as this was the first “extreme” activity I had done. The professionalism and slick operation made me feel a lot more safe.
Not trying to say I didn’t scream. Because the video proves otherwise.
I’d strongly recommend anyone doing it, and buy the video too!

It's been 6 years since I stood on the ledge trying to convince myself it was a good idea to jump,the thing is before your standing on the edge it seems easy it's not the first time after that you don't want to stop.to this day everytime I see vids if others doing the jump I can still feel how my time felt down into my bones ....that a memory you'll never lose...just do it
