Holy crap!!

From start to finish, the staff were polite, friendly, and engaging. When I first saw the jump platform, I was both excited and hesitant. We did a tandem for our birthdays which are 2 days apart. We chose to sit and have the rope cut. He did it strand by tantalizing strand. The wait was palpitous. When the last strand gave out, the fall was exhilarating and scary as shit. Well done guys. I will be telling people about this for years to come.

Thrilling experience!

My sister and I did the canyon swing and it was fun from the beginning. The guide was awesome, engaging and friendly from the beginning making the whole group comfortable. After a short walk and an easy process of getting harnessed up, we got to choose how we were launched and watch the other group members have their swing. Staff were knowledgeable, fun and definitely tailored the experience to each member of the group. My sister and I had a good laugh with the staff members before, during and after our swing which added to our experience. Can't wait to go back, would highly recommend! I would also like to comment on the booking process as my mum had booked through bookme.com and there was an issue with availability. We were contacted by the staff very promptly via phone call here in Australia and they accommodated our needs to fit in with the Shotover Jet which we had booked for the same day. Excellent service and very friendly staff. Thanks again.

Absolutely terrifying

Thus swing scared me to no end and it didn't help that the staff were playing it up. Fantastic thing to do, and great staff having a good time at our expense 😁

Just WOW

This was the absolut best experience I made so far! All the people there we’re very kind and it was such a great atmosphere!! The feeling if the jump itself is just not explainable… you HAVE to do it. What I also loved is that you can jump a second time for only 50$ 😍

So much fun

I actually didn't do the jump, I was a spectator watching my husband. It was amazing to see how fearless he seemed and he loved it so much he did a second jump.
