Wooooooo!! Loved every second. Staff were awesome and everyone I was with were in good spirits and all supportive of each other. I'd like to try the Indian string or the backwards chair next time.. I feel like my cutaway one was super tame compared to the ones I saw in my group. I know I have more balls than... More

Thanks to Salmon and the crew for providing a great experience. Weather was atrocious and didn't think we would be able to go but once up there it was fine and there was shelter. My partner wasn't into doing any of the bungy jumps so was good to find something that was a good rush that we could do together... More

The staff were excellent from checking in to drop off. There was a certain amount of teasing and messing about to raise the tension, but nothing that would compromise safety. I found the drop incredibly smooth and enjoyable, if that's the right word. Very entertaining watching others, and particularly the videos!

It's an amazing adrenalin rush but it's over before you know it...! Definitely a must for someone who wants to do something exciting but is too scared to do the bungee. The instructors are friendly, enthusiastic and like to mess with you, but its only so you have a fun time!! I felt completely safe and the views were stunning!... More

I ended up doing the canyon swing twice because i enjoyed it so much. It is so much fun!! I think if you are on holiday and you love a bit of a rush both the canyon swing and canyon fox are perfect. The canyon fox is better if you aren't very daring but i think if you are there... More

This was awesome, me and my friend did a tandem jump both in our 60's. We loved it the people are great cheerful helpful and put you at ease. You get picked up from Queenstown and a short ride to the canyon, then you are kitted up and you do your swing. If in the area do do it.

I won a voucher through my tour group to do both the Flying Fox and Canyon swing. Even though the drop is pretty terrifying, both were really great experiences and I would definitely recommend them. The team like to have a bit of a laugh and joke but they are professional and you know you're in safe hands. I ended... More

Did the Shotover Canyon Swing and it was fan-tas-tic. First Nathalia was incredibly nice, helpful and accommodating. The crew down at the jump base ( Jeff, Ken and Morgan) were fun and make you feel relaxed whilst listening to Jeff's Guns and Roses tunes ( after his visit to their concert) I had booked one jump only and after doing...
