Canyon Swing - Shotover Queenstown
Canyon Swing - Shotover
Imagine leaping off a cliff 109 metres above the ground, reaching speeds of 150 kilometres per hour as you plummet past the rocky cliff face so fast it’s all a blur. As you free fall a distance of 60 metres, you feel a jerk of tension from the ropes and are then catapulted into an enormous 200 metre swing across the raging Shotover River. You have just attempted the highest cliff jump in the world.
There are two ways to launch yourself into this thrilling canyon swing. You can choose to leap off the cliff mounted platform yourself or be released from the specially designed launch boom. A chest and seat harness ensure you can be launched in any way you like, whether in a somersault or upside down! There are more than 70 different jump styles to choose from, and whether you are solo or tandem jumping, the friendly staff can recommend the best styles for the biggest adrenalin rush! The chest and seat safety harnesses, the cliff top platform, the special release mechanism and various special products make possible virtually any jump style you can envisage. You are limited only by your imagination—and your nerves.
The entire canyon swing trip takes approximately 2.5 hours and a relaxed pace ensures that you have time for more than one swing. Team the Canyon Swing up with the newest adrenaline adventure in Queenstown, the Shotover Canyon Fox for an unforgettable combo saving you $40.
While the canyon swing itself catapults you through the air at frightening speeds, the tour operates at a relaxed pace and you won’t have to worry about being hurried or hassled. Each trip accommodates a maximum of eleven passengers including spectators, so you won’t be herded around in a big crowd. You’ll have ample time to drink in the spectacular scenery, including one of the region’s most impressive valleys. Your friendly driver will be your host during the trip and will ensure that you have a great time without undue pressure. Your jumpmaster will help you to have the best possible experience, making sure you’re excited but not crushingly afraid. Whatever your personality type, you will enjoy the experience immensely.

Everything Travel Group Review
I've done dozens of bungys around the world and this one takes the cake! Don't be fooled by the name... this is absolutely nothing like your average backyard swing! 109 metres of terror!!
One of the best things about this site is that there are so many ways to throw yourself into the deep canyon below. If you've only got time for one adrenalin activity in Queenstown then this is the one.
Suggestions: If you don't think you'll be able to make the leap of faith then the jump masters on site have plenty up their sleeves. They can take the responsibility entirely out of your hands. Check out the 'Chair' or 'Cutaway' jump styles. Extra jumps are dirt cheap so take advantage while you're out there.
