An absolute thrill with amazing views! Extra points to the guys running the show, they were awesome and their funny ways/sarcastic humour made the day great. Walking to the canyon, your path is scattered with tiny little gnomes and quirky signs and the views are...More

Way to: We were taken by a minibus to their base. It took around 10 min. In the bus we watched a instruction video which to be honest scares you more than everything else. Construction: It looks simple but safe. The jump: First at all...More

Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Would recommend for those looking for thrills. This was one of the most exciting things to do in Queenstown. Worth the money. The views from the canyon are very much worth it.

You've got to try it once, right? Standing on that platform looking down is absolutely terrifying as is the free fall. But it doesn't last long and the swing part is incredibly enjoyable. I think this experience is absolutely made by the hilarious staff. While...More

I decided to do the fox and the swing. It was great to start with the fox, and you're so high up. The freefall is epic and you then start ziplining down which has stunning views. Then another zip across to the swing where you...More

If you've made the decision to go, be a 100% in. Unless you turn around and walk off that platform you're jumping. I get that may not be for everyone, but for a lot of people it's also awesome! The guys are fun and mess...More

Hi there! Check-in is 15 minutes before the trip time, and you should allow 2.5 hours for the whole trip. So if you booked the 4.30pm trip; check in will be 4.15pm and you would be back in town around 7pm. Hope this helps!

Hi Jim We do allow you to bring you own Go Pro, which you can use on most jumpstyles (some jumpstyles you can't for your own safety), so long as it's securely fastened with a hands free mount. Chest, wrist and head mounts... More
