Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely brilliant. A real once in a lifetime experience. Such professional but fun staff operating it. We were both terrified but so happy we did it.

Professional team looked after our 15 year old son who was game enough to take the challenge. A short bus ride and short walk to the platform area. Spectators pay $25 to attend. Opportunities for spectators to tale pictures and video, however would recommend purchasing the footage directly from the company.

Absolutely insane experience with Shotover Canyon Swing. Easy pick up and smooth checkin and harnessing process. Hardest part was choosing which jump styles to do! The crew are epic - shot out to Mike who is brilliant! Top banter, top thrills, absolute must do!

It was the experience of a lifetime. It is super well-organized. Very knowledgeable staff, which made me feel very safe and confortable at all times. The views are spectacular. The jump is the scariest thing I’ve done in my life :D

I never thought I would be able to do this, but I did. .While I was petrified, I had the time of my life and even ended up doing a 2nd swing afterwards :) I have a huge fear of heights and pushed myself to do this. My friend who was with me is an adrenaline junkie. I can't remember both of the guys names, but one was Mike and he was awesome. I love how calming they are, but they also joke around with you as well which makes it more fun. I did the cut and drop as my first swing and what a thrill. Then afterwards I ended up doing a run and jump swing.

Highly recommend. It was so much fun. The only thing to be wary of is make sure you wear good shoes as the walk to the jump point from the car park is quite uneven and hilly.

Thank you to Adam and the team for making this one of the most memorable parts of our honeymoon! As someone who is extremely afraid of heights the tandem swing felt the most reassuring. We did the lucky dip version which was scary but fun. The drop was intense to say the least but so worth it and despite the rain, getting soaked was sooo worth it for the views we still got! My husband even went for an individual one too and loved that as well (he said he preferred the canyon swing to the Nevis bungee which he did later the same day!!) totally recommend and would definitely do it over again (if I don’t chicken out first!)
