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!

“Great adrenalin rush”
Reviewed 19 April 2017 via mobile

All the staff and set up are organised and v professional - makes you feel pretty confident until you get to the edge of the drop.... We had a party of 9 - the youngest at 10 years old didn't make the weight/height limit but seeing what the Fox was like I'm glad they didn't get a go - some of the oldies managed it and the teenage boys of course did it. Great place and experience - well worth visiting. Thanks!

“My daughter loved it.”
Reviewed 19 April 2017

I was the lucky parent who got to be the spectator as my 17 year old daughter did both the canyon swing and canyon fox. She LOVED them both. I think if she'd been given a little longer after her swing to think about what she'd just done she would have paid to do it again. Not a criticism, I get you're on a schedule and you have loads of people. The staff were excellent Sarah gets a shout out as she was our driver and the Fox operator but Britney said everyone was funny and kind. What a great experience, I'm so glad I was there to see her smile after it was all over. I'd recommend booking in advance as I didn't and we were lucky enough to get the last spot for the enter Easter weekend.

“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.
