      Thrill of a lifetime
      Thrill of a lifetime. Amazing facilities and staff. So well run. Beautiful easy drive right outside Queenstown and the location is amazing. The set up is so professional and top notch all the way.

      Great way to get some adrenaline
      I booked several activities with the company: Bungie, swing and catapult. Swing and catapult were especially fun and provided a good adrenaline rush. One thing to highlight was the energy of the staff as well as them offering a discount since we booked several activities without us asking for it. Thanks guys

      Best New Zealand experience!!!
      All of the staff at #ajhackettbungy was super friendly and energetic, helping make everything easy and memorable. Tia and I loved it so much, we were able to jump backwards the 2nd time! The 440 foot jump off Nevis Bridge lasted much longer than I anticipated. Hands down (or up) one of the coolest experiences of a lifetime and an absolute MUST DO when visiting Queenstown, New Zealand!

      Top thrills!
      Awesome experiences with AJ Hackett - two fun zip rides at the Kawarau Bungy Centre, then an epic swing at the Nevis. The crew are top notch with a big focus on safety - shoutout to Caitlin and Oli at the Nevis, and Tim at the K - these guys gave us the best time!

      My 10 yr old did this bungy jump in April
      My 10 year old son did this on a whim after we sis the zipline. It was awesome!! Would 100% recommend. He arranged all of it himself with the staff and they treated him so well! I wasn't sure about booking the photos and videos but SO glad I did. The pics were so great, such good quality and lots of them. Get the photo & video package!

      Awesome!
      We zip lined and canyon swinged - exhilarating & terrifying at the same time! Felt totally safe & confident we were in good hands at all times. What a fantastic team, welcoming and very professional in their safety checks, loved the photos & videos of our activities - thank you.

      Single use cups
      Very disappointing to see all single use cups at the Cafe, not sure if there are pottery cups available but to default to single use is not very good. It's 2024 Aj Hacket! Would love to see some more sustainability here.

      Crazy behavior haha 10/10
      We arrived to look at other people jump (which is free), but the moment we saw the first person jump we got so tempted That we enden up buying tickets. No regrets! It was so much fun and the beautiful Nature around just made it so much more special. The Crew was also so Nice and made sure to give you the best experience. 10/10

      Once in a lifetime? Then make sure AJ Hackett is the team to help you get it done!
      Catapult was an exhilarating experience. The team at AJ Hackett know their stuff. They explain everything very well which helps a lot with the jitters. Even the ride up to Nevis got your blood pumping!

      Bungee jump! Unforgettable experience
      Amazing experience at an iconic location! Great customer service! I had no intentions of bungee jumping until I saw the setting and the professionalism of the operation. Little bit of peer pressure helped! Highly recommend

      Nevis Bungy Jump
      The Nevis bungy jump was amazing! The whole experience was incredible. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I felt very safe as I had 4 different members of staff checking my harness properly before I jumped so I knew I could have fun and be super safe at the same time. I will remember this bungy jump for the rest of my life and this company is the best one to do it with. I could not recommend this enough to anyone and I would definitely do it again!

    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 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.

    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 :)

    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.

    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.

    Amazing experience! Went with my two teenage daughters and so glad we made the time to do the Nevis Swing. Everyone made us feel comfortable between the banter and safety checks. Ended up purchasing the video and photos for my girls (only needed to buy one set since they went tandem) even though we took our own photos as they had fun and different angles. On top of it, we were surprised by the shirts we received afterwards! All in all, an absolutely unforgettable experience!

    Loved it, the gentleman at the helm was great at distracting the customers before he sent them on their way and it was just as much fun to watch the other "Swingers" as he built up their anticipation.. My husband and i did it backwards.

    My only major gripe is its over so fast. It would be great if they sent you out twice to truly appreciate the rush.

    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!

    Went for the Nevis Swing option only as I personally wasn't so keen on Bungy jumping. I have to say the online booking experience was straightforward, on the day itself, staff were extremely friendly and professional! Smooth booking and check in experience. Check in is at their office in the town centre where they check your health conditions, weight and give you your ticket. From there the bus takes you to the Nevis Playground where the swing, bungy and catapult all are. Interesting ride there, keep a look out the windows! They take photos and videos during the jump / swing, and you have the option of buying them after you see them. They also give a small free souvenir after the activity. Nevis Playground itself was also a scenic and nice hangout place. Special shout out to our friendly and attentive bus driver Kat! ◡̈
