Did the Canyon Swing yesterday!! Chose "the Indian rope trick" and the "forward " jump styles and it was one hell of a BUZZING experience. Having already previously done 7 Skydives and 5 Bungy Jumps , this one probably one of the SCARIEST and most ADRENALINE pumped experience I have ever done. Great fun, friendly and reassuring/professional staff that takes... More

I went on the Canyon Fox and it was so much fun! All the staff are super friendly (except for the boys at the top who are evil and can't be trusted when they countdown to release you) (just jokes) and it is so pretty at the canyon!! Need to do it

Not what I would go for I must say but I was on my Honeymoon and my wife really wanted to give this a go so we did. Again she was right, as always, and what an incredible experience it was. The staff there are really good and made doing this really easy. I hate falling from heights, and I... More

The canyon swing definetly has to be one of the highlights of our Queenstown trip. Although the guys certainly do enjoy making you as scared as possible, despite their remarks it's obvious they know what they are doing haha (plus it's great to watch everyone else struggle after you've already been). The anticipation is much worse than the drop, and... More

Awesome. Simple. Jumped as a tandem. Went back straight away for a solo. Then back again for another solo! If your in Queenstown this is on your list. The guys are legends!

Wasn't sure how this would turn out considering i've done skydive and bungy before, however it was a lot of fun and Jack and all the other staff members made you laugh so easily. They joke around with you a lot, making light hearted remarks which really made this experience a lot of fun. As well as the hilarious photos... More

My boyfriend messed up the booking of the canyon swing by booking the wrong date. We didn't realise this until we showed up at the office and were told we had been a "no show" the day before... (how embarrassing). Lynne was amazing, she somehow managed to sort it out so that we lost no money and still did the... More
