Was so nervous about this adventure but the moment we met Cameron our driver we felt at ease. The staff are so friendly and make you feel like your about to have a great experience because you are!!! Loved it and highly recommend it. We are on the older side and soon realised we are still capable of this s*#t!!

The canyon swing was the adrenaline rush I came to New Zealand looking for! The staff are great at building up the anticipation while waiting for your jump on the platform. Once you're airborne, it's amazing! After the freefall you get to take in all the surroundings of the canyon. If there's additional time after your jump, you have the... More

This was definitely the highlight of my NZ road trip! I booked the tandem swing 30days early and received a nice little early bird discount too! The check-in location is super easy to find in the heart of QT, and has lots of friendly, helpful staff. You basically complete your check-in and get designated a bus and wait in the... More

Hi Ozzie I'm really glad you enjoyed your swing, however by the sounds of it, I think you did the Nevis Swing. Glorious review though!! Cheers! More

My three teenage sons did the canyon swing and absolutely loved it! They said it was the highlight of their trip. My husband, daughter & I watched because we were too afraid to go. Highly recommend the second swing. Staff was hysterical, the kids were cracking up the whole time!

Wooooooo!! Loved every second. Staff were awesome and everyone I was with were in good spirits and all supportive of each other. I'd like to try the Indian string or the backwards chair next time.. I feel like my cutaway one was super tame compared to the ones I saw in my group. I know I have more balls than... More

Thanks to Salmon and the crew for providing a great experience. Weather was atrocious and didn't think we would be able to go but once up there it was fine and there was shelter. My partner wasn't into doing any of the bungy jumps so was good to find something that was a good rush that we could do together... More
