Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Professional team looked after our 15 year old son who was game enough to take the challenge. A short bus ride and short walk to the platform area. Spectators pay $25 to attend. Opportunities for spectators to tale pictures and video, however would recommend purchasing the footage directly from the company.

My 19 yr old daughter and I did the Canyon Shotover Swing yesterday and it was truly fantastic! The whole experience from beginning to end was run really professionally with fun, competent guides that made the whole experience truly something we will never forget. We did it as part of the combo package, which meant we did the Shotover JET straight after with the tasting experience at the Brewery. Loved the Shotover Jet too and the brewery is in such a gorgeous spot, where you can have a beer and some flat bed and reflect on the action-packed morning you just had. If I could rate it more than 5 stars I would. Our guide for the day, Georgia was fun, relaxed and very competant - exactly the kind of vibe you need when you're about to hurl yourself off a cliff. Do yourself a favour and make sure you experience this while you are in Queenstown and use these guys they know what they are doing and make it amazing!!

AMAZING. So much fun. I was hesitant to do it as I felt I was kind of expensive for just a jump but once I did it, I just wanted to do more. You have more than 20 different styles of jumping and whatever you choose, the master make sure you are having fun at the same time that you are safe.

I was reluctant to do the canyon swing but my husband persuaded me and I’m SO glad I listened to him! It was so much fun!! We paid for the combo deal with the canyon swing and jet boat. It was well organised and we hardly had any waiting around between the experiences.
Staff were all friendly and helpful… particularly the guys working at the swing (Meg and another guy who’s name has slipped my mind!)! They helped make it a fun experience and had a laugh with us which helped calm my nerves!
We chose the tandem chop and drop option and had to watch them slowly cut the rope before our free fall…. It was insaaaanee! I think my heart stopped for a moment haha. My husband loved it so much he did another solo swing and rode of the edge on a trike!
Would definitely recommend this to any adrenaline junkies visiting QT!

Had a really good experience doing the canyon swing! It was in the winter, so the weather was pretty cold but the staff created a good atmosphere and hyped me up ready for the swing!
I did it a 1st time with my friend & then a 2nd time going down a slide- both equally as fun!
Special shout-out to Megan & Arnie (not sure if I spelt those right) who made the experience really fun & chatted to us the whole time.
Would definitely recommend doing this and if I find myself back in Queenstown i’ll for sure be coming back. Thanks guys!

I never thought I would be able to do this, but I did. .While I was petrified, I had the time of my life and even ended up doing a 2nd swing afterwards :) I have a huge fear of heights and pushed myself to do this. My friend who was with me is an adrenaline junkie. I can't remember both of the guys names, but one was Mike and he was awesome. I love how calming they are, but they also joke around with you as well which makes it more fun. I did the cut and drop as my first swing and what a thrill. Then afterwards I ended up doing a run and jump swing.

Highly recommend. It was so much fun. The only thing to be wary of is make sure you wear good shoes as the walk to the jump point from the car park is quite uneven and hilly.

From beginning to end the experience was flawless. Your staff are your greatest asset seconded by the scenery and thrill of the swing! My daughter and her bestie had a wonderful time and I felt reassured by the meticulous checks and double checks that the crew did on the equipment. Not once did safety cross my mind as they were so diligent!

The canyon swing in NZ is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and it did not disappoint!
The guys were very professional and made us feel at ease (as much as possible when nervous.)
We each got to do 2 jumps, as one just isn’t enough!
A memorable experience not to be missed in Queenstown.

Thank you to Adam and the team for making this one of the most memorable parts of our honeymoon! As someone who is extremely afraid of heights the tandem swing felt the most reassuring. We did the lucky dip version which was scary but fun. The drop was intense to say the least but so worth it and despite the rain, getting soaked was sooo worth it for the views we still got! My husband even went for an individual one too and loved that as well (he said he preferred the canyon swing to the Nevis bungee which he did later the same day!!) totally recommend and would definitely do it over again (if I don’t chicken out first!)
