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!
