What better place to try paragliding than high above Queenstown. The staff was excellent and explained every step. The hardest part is that first step off the mountain, after that it is amazing. The views were spectacular and I have a great bunch of pictures...More

Hi Vickie, That’s so great that you conquered those fears, with a little help from Tom! Good on you for building up to that more adventurous acrobatic style flight (once you’d relaxed and enjoyed the views of course!). Thanks again, we’re thrilled you enjoyed yourself.

I was simply wandering around on the top of the Skyline area when I happened across the GForce booth just atop the luge track. I asked if they could take a walk-up without a reservation. “Sure.” I see that you have a 100kg weight limit...More

Hi Nikmin, Yes, it’s a frustrating experience to almost fly. Your flight was 100% refunded. The winds shifted and exceeded the limits to ensure you had an enjoyable and safe flight. I trust you understand it’s logical that pilots can only assess wind conditions and...More

Hi. Skippers Canyon half day tour. Absolutely amazing. Can include a jet boat element but suggest you do Buller Gorge one instead if you're in that area, as it's the best one by far.
