Choosing the style of your jump can be a diffucult decision. The chair of death was a thrill! Don't think that sitting down will be relaxing in this situation. There is nothing natural about falling off a cliff while holding on for life to your...More

Best buzz in Queenstown. Small groups allowed plenty of time and chance to do more than one swing. Guys were great fun and safety was top notch. A must do for thrill seekers!

Before you jump, you can see from the safety measures that you're not going to die. Plummeting 108 meters towards the rocks below, beneath my screaming and swearing I thought I was going to die. Then a couple of seconds later I was laughing as...More

My partner and I were in Queenstown with our families, and decided to do the canyon swing. I was so scared to do it, but am so glad I did. It was pretty expensive, but it is worth it to do additional jumps as they...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!
