This is great for both adrenaline junkies and chickens like me. I wanted to do the canyon swing to face my crippling fear of heights. The entire operation was very professional and safe, and the staff's sense of humor helped take my mind off how terrified I was. The 1st second after I jumped was filled with regret and horror,...

A life changing experience - this is a must do if you're visiting Queenstown and can handle heights! Unlike the conventional bungy jump you're strapped to a harness and can choose from 10 different jumps. The view from the platform is magnificent. Will definitely do it again if we ever go back to Queenstown.

Coward by nature but needed to step outside my comfort zone so tried this. That first second dropping over the edge was truely terrifying but the rest was extraordinary. The guys doing the work were true professionals and i could not recommend it more. If like me this is something you 'have' to do rather then 'want to do', jump... More

My wife and I loved the Shotover Canyon Swing in Queenstown. We walked into the headquarters, signed up and 15 minutes later we were headed to plunge into the abyss. The whole crew from the driver to the "harnesser" were very professional yet their schtick was to appear nonchalant therefore making the experience more exciting. It did. My wife and... More

Our group had two adults, a teenager, and an 11 year old. We all loved it and did the second swing for $39. The pin drop is good and the Chair is great. The staff are great and mess with you heaps! Get the DVD/photo package ($120) and relive the experience over and over :-) It is very expensive but... More

I had a great time doing the Canyon Swing and the staff is great and they make jokes about everything and make you have a great time. I recommend the Death Chair. It was just a bit pricey but then again every activity is overpriced in Queenstown.

This is a amazing thing to do for people of all ages. The staff make it a great experience and fun. I was very nerves and they made me feel so much more at ease. The staff here make this experience so much better, without them it wouldn't be as good. The swing itself is so life changing and thrilling!... More
