My young son Declan had been looking forward to this jump for years and was not disappointed one bit. Many, many thanks to Brad, Cam and the others in the gantry team and also to Sophie, the polite and efficient town office booking manager, the Kingston-upon-Thames girl. See you again sometime. Cheers.

Had such a blast! It was great watching a few people go before me, trying different jumps - going down a slide, being pushed off backwards, tandem upside down etc. unfortunately the girl in front of me took a while so when it was my turn there was no mucking around! The guys are playful but professional, they joked with... More

I had chickened out of the idea of doing a bungee however this looked a lot more thrilling! Amazing experience. The staff were really friendly and classic wind up merchants! We ended up doing two jumps it was that fun!

Great experience that takes your breath away. Stunning views and so many different ways to step off the edge. The guys on the top make the day and join in the fun, encouraging everyone and make the experience worth it. Well worth doing twice!

We had such an amazing time doing the swing. The staff were all fantastic! Brad who was our driver/guide made the whole thing that much better. We're on our honey moon and are both terrified of heights but the whole team made it so much easier. So happy we overcame our fears and did it. So worth it

As an option to bungee jumping, we tried the canyon swing. My oldest daughter wanted to try this rather than bungee jumping and it was a blast. We did the basic drop, but they have many options for what you may be willing to do. Both of us enjoyed it and it was very safe and the staff were friendly... More

Just do it, the canyon swing that is. Such a rush and so good I did it twice. The guys were fantastic, very supportive and good fun. If you want a rush but bungy jumping not for you, then this is the one. Take a breath and jump! You will be so glad you did.

A big favourite with our teenagers. Great staff who are professional and funny. A brilliant thing to do if you can't quite stomach the canyon swing but still want a big thrill. I was not brave enough but my husband did it and loved it too.

I've never been so scared in my life, but this was easily one of the most fun activities I did during my time in Queenstown! Very few things beat a 60 meter free fall above a beautiful river. The guys working there were awesome and fun, which made my experience even more enjoyable! I highly recommend doing this activity while... More

The Canyon Fox is a must do when in Queenstown. The views of the Shotover River while flying across 146m above are spectacular. Safety is paramount. The staff are friendly, experienced and will ensure you are safely secured in the equipment before releasing you. We were a group of 6 and received a substantial discount so considered this value for... More
