If there is one thing you have to do while visiting Queenstown, New Zealand its the Shotover Canyon swing. Yes it's frightening but once you jump the adrenaline rush is indescribable and probably the best experience of my life. Our guide Tallas was awesome. From beginning to the end, he stayed with us and I felt safe the whole time. The drive there is short and the whole experience takes about two and half hours. Arrive 15 minutes prior to departure to check in . You meet your guide (by the way has jumped thousands of times and is extremely experienced) and they take your weight. Then as your palm are sweaty, they bus you up to the mountain. During the short bus ride, they show you videos of different jumping styles so you can decide which is the best for you. Once you get to the location, it's extremely nerve-racking but the team there is very supportive. My boyfriend and I went first and we jumped together. After everyone in our group jumped, I went ahead and jump for the second time by myself and I'm happy I did that because the experience is completely different. I highly recommend this as it is only $45 more which is pretty cheap . Also, As you watch others jump they have a live video streaming on deck so you can see their experience as well. After everyone jumps you head back to their main office where they have a team in the back editing and putting together an awesome video footage for you to purchase. I highly recommend that you purchase the video footage and the photos. Then once you are done with that, they bus you back to town but not without letting you know your bracelet also gives you happy hour prices at a local bar. Definitely go there afterwards because you'll need a drink or two to celebrate & digest that you just jumped off a 100m cliff!!
