What an amazing feeling to launch yourself into a deep Canyon!! Before it happens, you will yourself to think rationally - you won't land at the bottom!!Then those deep, instinctive behaviours emerge!! Leaning away from the edge, breathing too hard, little shakes. Then off you go! Pure thrills and no more nerves. The enthusiastic and caring young blokes were marvellous.... More

This is hands down the scariest (but also the most fun) thing I've ever done. I'll be honest, I was visibly terrified and the guys definitely enjoyed playing on that. I did the chair first and after finally bringing myself to rock backwards, they pulled me back in a few times until I least expected being let go. I am... More

Scared to go past the third rung of a ladder? Me too! But I did it! Forward leap. Staff was great and concerned with safety. Don't do the chair. It goes off backwards and they love to mess with you a bit on it. 66 and no new gray hairs from the jump. Yes!!

I actually did this on my last day in New Zealand. The view of the Shotover River from the platform is stunning. It was terrifying at first, but the staff was great about it and they really encourage people to just take the leap. The rest isn't as bad once you've hurdled that because you just swing over the river... More

This is our favorite activity in New Zealand!! The views are absolutely incredible!!! It is such an adrenalin rush! The staff were very funny and made the experience even more enjoyable! Also, the video and pictures they sell are very well done, and totally worth it. A must do in Queenstown!!!

Went on a combo fox & swing. I recommend to start with the fox and then the swing. The team is soooo funny. They must laugh so much with people reactions. They play with your fear, and that's awesome! GO FOR IT you won't regret :)
