      Must do!
      I was really nervous, the staff were the perfect level of joking around but also making sure I was okay and comfortable. Even the short walk to the swing was beautiful. The experience was absolutely amazing, the right level of scary, fun and beautiful.

      Good Times!
      Had a really good experience doing the canyon swing! It was in the winter, so the weather was pretty cold but the staff created a good atmosphere and hyped me up ready for the swing! I did it a 1st time with my friend & then a 2nd time going down a slide- both equally as fun! Special shout-out to Megan & Arnie (not sure if I spelt those right) who made the experience really fun & chatted to us the whole time. Would definitely recommend doing this and if I find myself back in Queenstown i’ll for sure be coming back. Thanks guys!

      Absolute must do experience.
      Absolutely brilliant. A real once in a lifetime experience. Such professional but fun staff operating it. We were both terrified but so happy we did it.

      Professional
      Professional team looked after our 15 year old son who was game enough to take the challenge. A short bus ride and short walk to the platform area. Spectators pay $25 to attend. Opportunities for spectators to tale pictures and video, however would recommend purchasing the footage directly from the company.

      One of the most thrilling experiences ever!
      Absolutely insane experience with Shotover Canyon Swing. Easy pick up and smooth checkin and harnessing process. Hardest part was choosing which jump styles to do! The crew are epic - shot out to Mike who is brilliant! Top banter, top thrills, absolute must do!

      The adventure of a lifetime
      It was the experience of a lifetime. It is super well-organized. Very knowledgeable staff, which made me feel very safe and confortable at all times. The views are spectacular. The jump is the scariest thing I’ve done in my life :D

      What a thrill. Conquered a huge fear and loved every moment
      I never thought I would be able to do this, but I did. .While I was petrified, I had the time of my life and even ended up doing a 2nd swing afterwards :) I have a huge fear of heights and pushed myself to do this. My friend who was with me is an adrenaline junkie. I can't remember both of the guys names, but one was Mike and he was awesome. I love how calming they are, but they also joke around with you as well which makes it more fun. I did the cut and drop as my first swing and what a thrill. Then afterwards I ended up doing a run and jump swing. Highly recommend. It was so much fun. The only thing to be wary of is make sure you wear good shoes as the walk to the jump point from the car park is quite uneven and hilly.

      Breathtaking views and memorable experiences
      Thank you to Adam and the team for making this one of the most memorable parts of our honeymoon! As someone who is extremely afraid of heights the tandem swing felt the most reassuring. We did the lucky dip version which was scary but fun. The drop was intense to say the least but so worth it and despite the rain, getting soaked was sooo worth it for the views we still got! My husband even went for an individual one too and loved that as well (he said he preferred the canyon swing to the Nevis bungee which he did later the same day!!) totally recommend and would definitely do it over again (if I don’t chicken out first!)

      It was so dang fun I had to go twice! I originally wouldn't even consider it but somewhere along the lines decided I had to. It was such a blast! Totally recommend

    An excellent experience with the Canyon Swing crew! Magnificant views!

    They are a very friendly and professional crew who are there to give you the ultimate experience. All of the staff were great - front office and operations crew. They are there to give you a fun time.

    I did the slide swing - a real buzz.

    Highly recommend this activity. All of the people (7 of us) came back with beaming smiles after their jumps with most people doing 2 jumps.

    Have a go! You won't be disappointed.

    Had a great experience, if you are an adrenaline junkie, this is a must. I did it twice, on the trike and hanging off the edge while they cut the rope (even got to take a piece home) the staff are funny and professional at the same time. Lots of safety checks.
    Make sure you get the video and photo package to show your family and friends.

    The energy and friendliness of the staff were exactly what I needed to get thru this insane experience. I felt safe from the moment I got the rig on til I was back on the platform. The transition from free fall to swinging on the rope was surprisingly seamless. I felt no jerkiness whatsoever. Can’t wait to do it again.

    My girlfriend and I did the tandem canyon swing this morning, we had such an amazing time. The staff were incredibly friendly and put our mind at ease, we felt completely safe and thoroughly enjoy the adrenaline rush of the swing over the canyon. Special shoutout to Kevy for being an amazing driver and jack of all trades. Wouldn't hesitate to rebook with these guys, would highly recommend to anyone in Queenstown.

    Terrifying. Couldn’t feel my arms . Staff really F$&@“s with you too to make you unsure if you’re going to die. Then you don’t die! And you’re so glad to be alive. Highly recommend if you’re feeling depressed

    So much fun. I was really nervous about the jump but as soon as I did it I was filled with adrenaline and loved it. So much so I did it again, but that time jumped backwards. Little tip. If you do your second jump naked you get it free! But blokes if you’re trying to impress anyone just remember it’s cold haha.

    Staff are funny and supportive. Make you feel very relaxed.

    The swing was so much fun, it was great to be able to choose between so many options of how to leave the platform. The staff were so friendly and made the experience really fun. The scenery of the canyon was beautiful and it was nice to swing there and enjoy it. My advice is to just pre-book the video/photo package because you’re going to want that video!

    These guys are outstanding. They love to compound the natural fear you feel by winding you up. I had to do a second jump. All staff a super friendly and cheerful. I highly recommend getting the video package. They have people in the back room editing all the footage on site by the time you are done. And it's well done.
