I did the canyon fox zipline and I'm still buzzing! The free fall takes your breath away and the ride down over the canyon is beautiful! Dan, Roberts, Chris and Hugh made it even more amazing with awesome banter.. made me laugh and enjoy the experience even more.. Lynne and Sophie were awesome, helpful and the best friendly faces to see on the other side :) would recommend to anyone who wants to feel a wicked rush with the best staff. Pics are really cool too! Thanks guys

I loved this so much! Highlight of my trip! The staff are all really friendly and the boys working at the actual swing are a great laugh. They really want to you have fun on your jump and do everything they can to make that happen.
You can choose any jump style you want basically, I chose one of the scariest! The seven count (dodgy looking piece of rope) is great fun, I saw someone else do the chair and it looked terrifying!

I had a bit of an issue booking as I was getting a combo with the jet boat and my swing was booked in for the wrong day, so to make up for it the staff offered me a different time and gave me my photos and videos for free! To be fair the photo packages are A LOT cheaper than some things I've been to and they actually let you take your own goPro if you have a chest harness so I'd suggest doing that if you can.

It is a little bit expensive but if you do more than one jump the others are considerably cheaper, and if you're not likely to be back in New Zealand anytime soon it is well worth it!!

If you are looking for an adrenaline rush I would definitely recommend this!!

The canyon swing gives you a great adrenaline rush. The staff are all amazing and make you feel totally at ease while having a laugh with you and making the experience even more fun. I would say that the video and photos are worth the money as they look great.

Was so nervous about this adventure but the moment we met Cameron our driver we felt at ease. The staff are so friendly and make you feel like your about to have a great experience because you are!!! Loved it and highly recommend it. We are on the older side and soon realised we are still capable of this s*#t!!
