Owner description: At the home of the world’s highest cliff jumps, our already famous 109m high Canyon Swing and our not yet famous 182m high Canyon Fox are just the ticket to get your heart pumping and put smiles on your faces! Whichever way you jump, launch or get released, there’s a fun or scary style for you. Throw our staff into the mix and you’ve got an experience of a lifetime. Gravity is a toy. Come out and play!

“Loved it so much i did it twice!”
Reviewed 17 April 2017

The team were so friendly and welcoming and made you feel at ease. I was terrified once on the platform but they got you ready for it and I'm so glad i did it! The rush was incredible and i loved it so much me and my friend did a tandem one the second time. Photos are good quality but video jumps a bit!

“Must-do experience”
Reviewed 16 April 2017

The team at Shotover Canyon Swing are excellent, friendly and professional from check-in until they got us back to the city. Personally I think the Swing is better than a bungy jump and there is no better company in Queenstown. Highly recommended.

“Loved it! Safe, fun, and what a thrill!”
Reviewed 14 April 2017

Meet at the downtown QT location and they bus you out to the launch facility. Everyone was friendly, funny and very competent. Watch the videos ahead of time on the website to get an idea of the different launch styles you can do off the platform - they rate them from 1-5 underpants level of scary. I chose to do the "This is Sparta" backwards kick-off, and then loved it so much did the "Pindrop" for a second jump - both are level 5 scary. It was such a rush! The photo packages they offer (for a fee) are great.

“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).
