Scarier than a bungee jump and the staff really mess with you. I chose to do a backwards fall and was shaking at the top. Excellent safety procedures and they take the piss. They asked me to check the harness etc. to which I said "ok" and they responded "the customer is always right" very classy and I was bricking... More

We did both the canyon swing and the canyon fox, both were bloody brilliant. The Shotover staff were excellent, professional, friendly and funny buggers. Highly recommend Shotover canyon swing and fox, will be back for sure, cheers

Did the Canyon Swing and thought it would be relatively straight forward as I had done some other similar activities. Got up there and was terrified but must say it was a huge adrenaline rush and really enjoyed it. There are beautiful views of the river/canyon below while you watch others do their jumps. The staff were friendly and would... More

I did this for my birthday and it was a great day, I ended up jumping twice because it was so much fun. I was a bit scared but the instructors were really good and fun, I love the fact that you can pick your method of jumping, I did the fairly simple jumps (backwards and pin drop) but the... More

The Canyon Swing was a highlight of our visit to Queenstown. Our thrill-seeking teenage daughters loved this activity. The trip was well organised from beginning to end, staff were enthusiastic and friendly, and made jumping off the platform easy! The video was well put together and is a fun momento.

All the staff and set up are organised and v professional - makes you feel pretty confident until you get to the edge of the drop.... We had a party of 9 - the youngest at 10 years old didn't make the weight/height limit but seeing what the Fox was like I'm glad they didn't get a go - some... More

I was the lucky parent who got to be the spectator as my 17 year old daughter did both the canyon swing and canyon fox. She LOVED them both. I think if she'd been given a little longer after her swing to think about what she'd just done she would have paid to do it again. Not a criticism, I... More
