“Take a leap with the Canyon Swing!”
Reviewed 14 April 2017

The Canyon Swing is a great rush, being able to jump and fall however you want with a decent free-fall time. The harnesses seem great with a smooth transition from the fall to the swing. After the jump, you're hoisted back up to the platform giving you plenty of opportunity to see where you just jumped into.

The staff are happy for you to wear your action cameras (no selfie sticks), but video is also available for purchase. Monitors are also set up for you to check your footage for free.

You'll need to allow around 2.5 hours for the round-trip from Queenstown if you're planning on any follow-up activities that day (Bus ride return from Queenstown is included). It's expensive at the standard price, but if you're smart you can get a discount through a booking website (particularly during off-seasons).

“Great fun!”
Reviewed 13 April 2017

We loved this. It's so much better than bungy jumping. You really get to enjoy the canyon while being a bit crazy. The staff was great as well. My parents wanted to come watch and they were allowed for free, so they got to view the canyon as well. They are also a bit older so move a little slower but the staff was excellent. They even carried their stuff for them to help them out.

We did the fox only now the swing and it was incredible. Next time I'm in Queenstown I'm doing it again, for sure!

“Try it !!”
Reviewed 11 April 2017

Sadly, it ' s not as famous as A.J.Hackett and the Nevis. What a shame, coz it' s as good as all of them ! The crew is super friendly, very well trained welcoming and funny ! The site is one of the closest (with the ledge) and you have over 70 different possibilities to jump ! Upside down, hand stand, backwards, 7 strings... Your choice ! you pick up and fall from 109 m height ! (world' s highest cliff jump) 60 m further down, you nicely get caught by your best friend at this exact moment (the elastic !) and you go for a nice and smooth 200 m swing.. Very nice camera angles/shots, you can do it again if you' re brave enough for less than than $50 (depending on the availability)

“Freaking Awesome ”
Reviewed 9 April 2017 via mobile

Very well organized, great staff, encouraging and funny. Breathe taking scenery, very professional, step outside your comfort zone and just do it.
