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

The team at Shotover Canyon Swing are excellent, friendly and professional from check-in until they got us back to the city. Personally I think the Swing is better than a bungy jump and there is no better company in Queenstown. Highly recommended.

Meet at the downtown QT location and they bus you out to the launch facility. Everyone was friendly, funny and very competent. Watch the videos ahead of time on the website to get an idea of the different launch styles you can do off the platform - they rate them from 1-5 underpants level of scary. I chose to do... More

The Canyon Swing is a great rush, being able to jump and fall however you want with a decent free-fall time. The harnesses seem great with a smooth transition from the fall to the swing. After the jump, you're hoisted back up to the platform giving you plenty of opportunity to see where you just jumped into. The staff are... More
