You can't visit Queenstown without throwing yourself off a cliff! The cool staff are focused on fun and tormenting their customers but have a 'human' side when required. The journey to the site is covered is silence as participants battle their nerves but after one...More

Just to see other people swinging at such great height was nerve wrecking. You certainly need a little bit of courage and guts to attempt this activity. Most people who did this were quite happy afterwards.

The guys will make you scared even if you aren't when you get there! Great experience, great staff! Tip: Do this with a Shotover jet experience to save some cash, they are both in the same vicinity and usually have combo packages.

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!
