Overview
Thrill-seekers in New Zealand’s ‘adventure capital’ will love free-falling over the river on the Shotover Canyon Swing. A jump instructor prepares both first-timers and seasoned daredevils to swing solo or tandem along a special rope and cable system suspended between two cliffs. You’ll swing safely in a secure harness and hear encouragement throughout your pendulum ride above the Shotover River.

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.

Thanks for sharing your time with us Sandy. Buzzed that you enjoyed our staff's attempts at funny-ness! Great choice of swings in the trike and chop & drop. Hope to have you back sometime to try more.
