Our guide/ bus driver Julian was exceptional. We watched a video on our way to the swing spot which helped with the nerves. Once there, we met Morgan and Doug who were very professional and witty. We all thoroughly enjoyed our experience so much so...More

I'm moderately afraid of heights and never done anything remotely like this. The staff were humerous and fairly understanding of how nervous I was. I ended up jumping twice and 5hrs later still feel a little shaken but over-all it was a good experience.

Best thing I've done in my life. Was scared shitless, but after the first jump I just wanted more. Good price for a second jump too (in my opinion)! The people there were great fun and love messing around with you, but with full control...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!
