So I decided to do this after seeing a video online. We went to Queenstown especially to do this and it was worth every penny. I knew my daredevil husband would love it and decided not to be controlled by my fears and do it...More

We booked a canyon swing and fox (zipline) for a Saturday morning. At the fox site, windspeed was just under 20 metres/second, which is the limit for safety. The staff were initially very funny and joking around with me that I would be hanging off...More

Couldn’t book the Nevis swing as the time slot we wanted was already taken, so their loss is the Shotovers gain and we were not disappointed. We did the combo fix and swing, just 2 couples initially and out arrival was wet and misty and...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!
