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.

My 10 year old weights 20.5 kgs. Is she still able to do the canyon swing - either alone - or with me?

Comments

Hi Jeff, the minimum weight for the Shotover Canyon Swing is usually 35kgs for the Canyon Swing however this can be flexible if your childs waist is at least 26 inches. If your sons waist is smaller than this then he won't fit in the harness.

Do you have a recommended maximum age? I am 52.

Comments

Hi Monica. You are a spring chicken!! People over 80 years old have done the Canyon Swing in Queenstown so you are certainly not too old! One of the great things about the Shotover Canyon Swing is that there are so many different ways to jump. Backwards, forwards, flips, somersaults, from a seat, in a garbage bin... the list is endless. And if you don't quite have the courage to jump off yourself then you can get one of the experienced crew to release you from a harness so no leap of faith required!

i possible to do thwe swing without tipping the chair over BACKWARDS. I see pictures of people going tandem and they are still tethered to the platform so it's possible to swing facing forward.

Is the price for tandem 2X the price for single 'swingers'?

Comments

Hi William, there are over 70 different jump style options with the Shotover Canyon Swing so you certainly don't have to swing from the chair, that is just one of the options. Yes, that is correct, the tandem price is the same as 2 x single swingers.

Comments

Hi Eddie,

Yes it is NZD $199 per person to Swing. It's an amazing product and once you see what they have done to create this product you will be blown away.
Awesome experience, but make sure you book soon as they have limited numbers and Queenstown is about to get quite busy.

My partner and I are coming to Queenstown for a short holiday in August and he is very interested in the Canyon Swing. I am not able to participate in the swing (I have a massive fear of heights) but would like to come and watch him swing. Is this possible?

Can you jump first ($199)and then decide if you'd like to do a second jump ($39 extra), or do you have to decide that before you begin? Thanks, Rosie

Comments

Hi Rosie, you most certainly can. You only need to pay your initial $199 for your Canyon Swing booking and then on the day if you decide you want a second swing you pay the additional $39 up front.

Hi Vyvian. The cost to do the tandem Shotover Canyon Swing in Queenstown is the same as it is to do it solo. So $199 per person. There are dozens of different ways to jump and you can decide just how you are going to throw yourself off the edge once you arrive at the Canyon Swing site on the day.
