Great combination of jumping,swing and zipriding!

I done the fox. It was fun, great funny team and beautiful scenery! That was a good value that you pay once and get to experience 3 things. Really worthy!

You are given a choice of many ways to leave the platform described in degrees of 'scaryness' 1 to 5 pants wetting, it adds a bit of fun to the choice! The staff were great and made the experience, the jump was just fantastic, very exhilarating and you can have a video and photo's to prove you did it.

I had the best time doing the Shotover Canyon Swing. I was nervous but the guys there are super friendly and the canyon is beautiful. The free fall is fun and then you get to swing and look at the beautiful canyon scenery. I would highly recommend.

Well, what can I say about this..... Its amazing, I loved it so much I did 4 Canyon Swing jumps. The staff are friendly and professional, and although they do try and freak you out a bit its very safe and its all part of the show. I've done the Blouklands bridge bugee in South Africa, so I wasnt fussed... 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
