Jumping off yourself or being released from 109 metres into a canyon is a scary move… With over 70 different jumpstyles we can expertly manage the scariness for everyone – from knitting nanas to adrenalin junkies!
Travel 15 minutes from Queenstown in one of our 4WD vehicles, take an easy 3 minute bush walk and you’ll arrive at our private site – a purpose built, cliff mounted platform on the edge of a cliff 109m above the Shotover River.
Standing on the platform you will see the cables running from cliff to cliff over the river – this is the pivot point for the pendulum. From the middle of the cables two ropes run back to the platform ready for you to be harnessed to them – you act as the end of the pendulum!
After a safety briefing you’re led to the platform where you’re fitted into a chest & seat harness then attached onto our twin rope swinging system. It’s then over to you to jump into the unknown. The beauty of The Swing is that you can jump off any way you like. We have well over 70 jumps available and many more up our sleeve for ‘special occasions’ – our jump staff are only too willing to help your choice! There are a number of tandem jumpstyles available too.
Once you ‘depart’ the platform you will freefall 60m down into the canyon until the ropes smoothly swings you into a giant 200m swing. You will then complete a couple of massive swings before you slowly come to rest approximately 100m below the departure platform. We then winch you swiftly back up to the platform with a huge smile on your face and a memory you will not forget in a hurry. When you get back to the platform you have the choice of doing more jumps.
