I was apprehensive with my first jump but it was well worth it and was ready to do it again as soon as I reached the top. Pick the jump experience that you want and don't feel... read more

I was apprehensive with my first jump but it was well worth it and was ready to do it again as soon as I reached the top. Pick the jump experience that you want and don't feel pressured to hurry. I'm 56 years old and this was my first cliff jump but I will remember it for the rest of... More

Booking was easy, it was jumping off a cliff that was the hard part!!!!! I loved it so much that I opted to jump a second time. The first go round, I was only brave enough to jump forwards, but on the second, I was suspended upside down and released. You are harnessed in and once you jump, you have... More

If there is one thing you have to do while visiting Queenstown, New Zealand its the Shotover Canyon swing. Yes it's frightening but once you jump the adrenaline rush is indescribable and probably the best experience of my life. Our guide Tallas was awesome. From beginning to the end, he stayed with us and I felt safe the whole time.... More

I found this so terrifying that I was almost reluctant to go with a 5 star rating, but then I decided that the fact I cried the whole way there and up to the point of the jump itself just means that I'm a wuss, not that this isn't an incredible activity :) I've done a couple of skydives before,...

This is great for people who don't want to sky dive or bungee jump but still do something that gives you an adrenaline rush. It is terrifying but such an amazing experience. There are so many different jump styles that you can change to suit whatever you're comfortable with. There is also the tandem option if you don't want to... More

Don't let age get in the way of this amazing experience. Steeping outside our comfort zone and taking the swing was one of the best experience both my husband and I had whilst travelling on our motorcycle for a month in the South Island. As they say " just do it"

I accompanied my two adult children as a spectator. Our guide Daniel was very informative, helpful and showed care and time to put all the participants at ease. My kids did the scariest options on both the canyon fox and the canyon swing, with my daughter paying the additional fee for a second swing. Participants are advised to wear closed... More

I did the canyon fox zipline and I'm still buzzing! The free fall takes your breath away and the ride down over the canyon is beautiful! Dan, Roberts, Chris and Hugh made it even more amazing with awesome banter.. made me laugh and enjoy the experience even more.. Lynne and Sophie were awesome, helpful and the best friendly faces to... More
