If you were planning on doing one of the swings while in Queenstown I would recommend this one over the Nevis. Whilst the Nevis is still good, all it is is a swing and that's it. The staff at the Shotover Canyon Swing were terrific....More

Friendly staff, small groups and excellent choice of photos and videos after your jump. Only recommendation is ditch the DVD's and put the stuff on USB's!!! Always felt safe while we jumped!! Will be back :)

Well worth the rush...you might as well do the country's biggest bungie while you're there! Be sure to check out the different ways to swing before you take the leap. I went upside down for an extra thrill!

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!
