Swing Jet Heli Raft - Shotover Canyon Combo


Latest Questions about Swing Jet Heli Raft - Shotover Canyon Combo

hey Im coming down to Queenstown in Jan 16th tah 20th and wanted to book activities for my partner as a surprise. What would you recommend doing out of the cannon swing or bungy? im terrified of both but definatly want to white water raft and might see if i can do another with him! sorry for silly questions


Hey Kendall. There is no simple answer really but to simplify it a bit for you here's what I think. I have done many bungy jumps, canyon swings and skydives, bungys are definitely the most terrifying... but in saying that they are also the most satisfying! A bungy is something that everyone should tick off their bucket list eventually but, the thing is you have to jump yourself. If you don't think you can force yourself to jump off the ledge then you might want to consider a canyon swing. There are 2 in Queenstown. The Shotover Canyon Swing, which is included in this Canyon Swing Combo is the original and offers you dozens of different jump styles. You can throw yourself off forwards, backwards, upside down, in a rubbish bin... anyway you want really, but if you aren't brave enough to through yourself off then you can opt to sit in a chair and the jump master will release a cord which will send you into the canyon below. Sound scary? Well it is but with this option of not having to throw yourself off the edge many more, let's say, 'less brave' people, are able to enjoy this experience. Where as with a bungy you have to jump off yourself! There is also another swing in town called the Nevis Swing and it's located out at the Nevis bungy jump site. It's similar to Canyon Swing however with this one you don't jump off, instead you are released by a jump master. And you can also do it tandem. At this site you can also do the Nevis bungy which at 134m is the highest in New Zealand. Does that help clarify?
