Did this along with the Whitewater rafting. The shotover jet was wild! Much more fun and exhilarating than a previous one we did in NZ. Lots of 360s and the driver gets you so close to the canyon walls! So much fun!

Yes! You can easily do the skyline luge in the morning and keep the shotover jet for the afternoon! But pls keep in mind not to have heavy lunch in the afternoon! As it may cause nausea😊
