You must do this in Queenstown, at least once! I was quite apprehensive, however the staff were all quite professional and were great guides through the process. Try the slide jump-style, a great choice!

The canyon-swing offers a slightly different adrenaline experience, perhaps most comparable to a bungy jump. The guys who ran it on the day we were there were great, up for a laugh and didn't take themselves too seriously. The experience itself is quite thrilling, but...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!
