I am 61 but wanted to do the Shotover Canyon Swing. The staff really looked after me. A short bus ride to the location followed by some safety instructions and harness fitting and you are right to go. I did two swings with the second...More

A little bummed because they said that all slots were filled, but seemed to keep adding people, and the only reason we booked Fox was the Swing was full. Great team of people though, very enjoyable and energetic. The overall experience was definitely worthwile!

Must do thing at adventure City queenstown. Staff is very friendly and helpful. You'll meet at the office 15 Minutes before, then a short transport to the canyon. There are several jump-styles. I think it's more worth the money than bungee jump. You got 108...More

Once isn't enough! This is a total rush. Not to be missed 👍 My son did the Swing - twice - my daughter and I did the Fox. Heart in mouth when you go over the edge - but well worth the moment of fear

Scarier than a bungee jump and the staff really mess with you. I chose to do a backwards fall and was shaking at the top. Excellent safety procedures and they take the piss. They asked me to check the harness etc. to which I said...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!
