Never too late to go for it !!

Had an awesome experience ( in the real sense of the word ) today with Thomas paragliding over queens town ! Trilling exhilarating all the superlatives you could possibly use !! Felt so safe under the care of Thomas who made me ( an over 60!!!) feel so safe . Mind you I am still trying to wash evidence of my weight ( am sure their scales weight heavy !) which they write on you hand as if I needed a reminder !!
Definitely recommend the entire crew !

Excellent experience
May 2021
My pilot Dominic was very friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Although the weather of the day meant we had to depart from coronets peak instead of the top of the Gondola. The lady in the office who pick up my call and helped me with the last-minute booking was very helpful.
The whole experience was a thrill and would definitely do again!!

Unforgettable experience!
Mar 2021 • Solo
I wanted to go paragliding since I saw some people doing it when I last visited Queenstown.
I am soooo happy I bit the bullet and did it.
It was an experience I will never forget!
My pilot Thomas was super nice and put me straight at ease because he knew I was nervous.
He explained everything to me and I never once felt like I was not in safe hands.
Even with the trouble I had with signing in they were kind and let me partake.
He explained how paragliding works and how to become a paraglider which was very fascinating.
The views were spectacular, even when the take off point had to be moved to Coronet peak due to wind.
All of the team at Gforce were friendly and professional.
It was my most favourite memory of my trip and one I will treasure forever.
I 100% recommend doing it and will be recommending to everyone I know.
Thankyou Gforce for an unforgettable experience!

Dec 2020
What a fabulous way to say goodbye to 2020! I have wanted to paraglide for 15 years and the experience absolutely exceeded my expectations! Thomas was a marvelous pilot and I felt 100% secure as he skillfully led the way with his thrill-seeking acrobatics! l It was mind-blowingly beautiful! Three of us paraglided together and we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Highly recommend!

Although I did not do it but my daughter did it and she thoroughly enjoyed it. She said the views up there were fantastic although the initial take off was a bit scary. What an experience for her and money well worth spending.

One of the best things I’ve ever done!
Paragliding above Queenstown on a beautiful day would have to be in the top 3 best things I’ve ever done! It was awesome and the team taking my partner and I were awesome! We got some awesome photos. It’s definitely a MUST DO!

BEST EXPERIENCE EVER!!
Nov 2020
I cannot recommend this company enough.. My 11 year old son had the most amazing adventure of his little life.. His pilot Blake was professional, funny and made my boy feel comfortable. Master 11 cannot stop talking about how "AWESOME" Blake is and the best experience. The smile on his face when he came down said it all.. 100 percent worth every cent spent. THANK YOU TEAM!! We will be back..
