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...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.

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...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
