Insane and empowering experience that everyone should do at least once in a lifetime. Staff was pretty patient and very careful with the customers that were doing the jump for the first time

An exhilarating experience! With the canyon fox you have the option to run of the platform or to go backwards/forward facing or sideways. You also have the option in how much of a freefall you want! A great experience and the staff were amazing too

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!
