My husbands adrenaline swing! Pro's: - the location - the experience - the supportive staff - the different ways to drop (I did mine upside-down) Con: - nothing since my husband survived and loved the thrill

The canyon swing definetly has to be one of the highlights of our Queenstown trip. Although the guys certainly do enjoy making you as scared as possible, despite their remarks it's obvious they know what they are doing haha (plus it's great to watch everyone...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!
