Not to be outdone by my daughter and to keep my sister-in-law company on a tandem swing, I gave it a go. It is a totally freaking experience but unbelievably good! Two different swings (special offer until end Sep means one is free) - the...More

I love a good stitch up! The guys on the platform basically told me what jump I should do as I had no idea and they were on the money. I did the Pindrop and they were very detailed in the correct way I should...More

This activity is very well planned and I highly recommend doing both the Fox and the Swing. The Fox gives you a taste of that falling feeling while the swing really hits it home in the most adrenaline pumping way. And the staff are amazing,...More

Did both the Jetboat ride and Canyon swing. Both were amazing experiences. Staff were friendly and professional. Loved the banter and how laid back everyone was, made the experience really enjoyable! If your in Queenstown its a must do!

I am terrified of heights but desperately wanted to have a crack at this and what an experience it was. From the check in at the center on Shotover St, the adventure starts. The banter from the guys starts and it was really funny. We...More

Hi there! Check-in is 15 minutes before the trip time, and you should allow 2.5 hours for the whole trip. So if you booked the 4.30pm trip; check in will be 4.15pm and you would be back in town around 7pm. Hope this helps!
