Overview
Feel your heart pumping as you sway into a wide arc on the Nevis Swing, suspended from a high platform above the Nevis River. The world’s largest swing lets you free-fall before swooping through the air at high speed. Enjoy a 40-minute drive from Queenstown before starting your daredevil experience in New Zealand’s adventure capital. Ride solo or with a friend, but if you’d prefer to watch you can select the Spectator Pass at booking.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Queenstown for transport to the Nevis Swing. The 40-minute drive takes you through the high country en route to the Nevis Swing site located above the Nevis River. You can go solo or ride in tandem with a friend, or simply be a spectator.

On arrival, you’ll receive a safety briefing and slip into a secure harness before following your guide across a catwalk to the 525-foot-high (160-meter) enclosed platform suspended on cables in midair between the cliffs. Feeling the fear yet? Wait until your guide secures you to the swing mechanism, which lifts you out from the launch deck above the canyon floor. 

The real adrenaline-pumping action begins when you’re released into a 100-foot (30-meter) free fall. Reaching speeds up to 75 mph (120 kph), you’ll suddenly sway into a 985-foot (300-meter) arc over the Nevis River valley. You also have the option to ride forward, backward or upside down! Once you stop swinging, you'll be winched back up to the platform. 

Photos and videos are available for purchase following your ride on the Nevis Swing. Your half-day tour ends with return transport to Queenstown via shuttle.

Incredible experience!

The team were amazing, really reassuring and helpful. We were delayed because the wind picked up but kept updated frequently. The swing itself is incredible. Amazing experience and we are so happy we did it. Highly recommend!

I did it while hanging upside down!

Amazing experience, would go at it again if I ever go back to Queenstown. Wait time was relatively short. 10/10 experience

Mental.

We'd booked this last minute. Opted for the swing. Arrived at the station for check in which was simple enough, you get weighed and your weight is logged. Bus came at 10am and off we went, our driver Mo was a great guy cracking jokes...More

Adrenaline Rush!

Did the Nevis Swing during my visit to Queenstown, as I couldn’t pluck up the courage to do the bungy jump! This was still very nerve wracking, but as the staff say “the more nervous you are, the more you’ll enjoy it”! A bus picks...More
