The canyon swing and fox was an amazing activity for everyone. So many options of how you'd like to be thrown into the canyon (harnessed in of course haha) and the staff really knew how to help people with fears of heights.

I loved this experience so much, I did two jumps back to back wanted to do a third but did not have time. The team was great, and the experience itself is fantastic. If I could do a daily jump with these guys, I would!

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!
