Must do thing at adventure City queenstown. Staff is very friendly and helpful. You'll meet at the office 15 Minutes before, then a short transport to the canyon. There are several jump-styles. I think it's more worth the money than bungee jump. You got 108...More

Once isn't enough! This is a total rush. Not to be missed 👍 My son did the Swing - twice - my daughter and I did the Fox. Heart in mouth when you go over the edge - but well worth the moment of fear

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...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...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!
Hiya, Can I use a GoPro on the swing? If so what connection would you recommend?

Hi Jim We do allow you to bring you own Go Pro, which you can use on most jumpstyles (some jumpstyles you can't for your own safety), so long as it's securely fastened with a hands free mount. Chest, wrist and head mounts... More
