What a rush! I did the canyon fox and it's so much more than just a big zip line. It's "only" a 5 metre drop but my god your stomach almost falls out of you! The multi shot pictures afterwards are great to commemorate the...More

I did the fox and the swing. It's just as insane/amazing as each other. But the staff made the experience 100x better, they were fun, helpful, knowledgable, and encouraging. There was a person in our group who was terrified and initially couldn't bring herself to...More

Omg! The thrill! I can honestly say that we were successfully hocked on adrenaline after this. I did two swings, one time solo, backwards. The second was a forward jump with my sibling. What sets this place apart, as many other reviews have mentioned, are...More

So that was exhilarating. Staff were friendly and helpful and the experience was a must do. Standing on the ledge is the hardest part, once you're falling it's fine. Loved it, would do again.

I'd heard a lot about the people working here trying to mess with you and psych you out as your about to jump so I thought I'd be prepared with what they had to offer....I was wrong. I'm not scared of heights but my god...More

I have issues with heights, but knew if I wasn't doing a bungee in NZ, I was going to do something similar, and the Shotover Canyon Swing seemed like a good option. You book in advance, show up at the office to sign the waiver,...More

An absolute thrill with amazing views! Extra points to the guys running the show, they were awesome and their funny ways/sarcastic humour made the day great. Walking to the canyon, your path is scattered with tiny little gnomes and quirky signs and the views are...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!

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
