What We Do
THE WORLD’S HIGHEST & SCARIEST CLIFF JUMPS
It all began as a hobby of jumping off cliffs over seventeen years ago. Today we still jump off cliffs, but now we share this with those who dare and those willing and eager. Our unique style of service is all down to our great team who are passionate about our customers having the best experience ever.
The Canyon Swing, our original experience which opened in 2002, is a giant rope swing that redefined ways of getting the thrill of freefall. 14 years later, it paved the way to be more daring and bolder when we built The Fox. An extreme zipline which is the only one in the world with freefall and New Zealand’s highest
Set amongst the dramatic scenery of the Shotover Canyon just 15 minutes from Queenstown, it’s not just the landscape that takes your breath away. Our unique jumpstyles can leave you saying, what, how and most likely why? Because why not, it’s fun!
Over the years we’ve dreamt up, developed, and tested heaps of epic jump styles – each one unique in fear and swagger. If those don’t tickle your adrenaline pickle, our Jumpmasters’ can provide a collective catalogue of fear-inducing, adventurous styles that are sure to cause a hindrance to your heartbeat.
Choose your undie rating to suit your level of fear 1 = very scary, 5 = very very very very very scary!
Our easiest launch by far. We suspend you out over the canyon in a sitting position, which you will remain in for the whole of your swing. If you’re tough enough you can release yourself or leave it to us. You can just sit back and enjoy the ride.
Standing on the edge looking down if you dare, then step, jump, fall, dive or leap any which way to begin your spectacular descent. You’re free to scream, flap your arms and kick your legs as you accelerate into the canyon. Jumping off yourself is an amazing achievement.
Bum on seat, hands on handle bars, and just ride off the edge or, get a push you choose the ramp. So simple you could do it with your eyes closed (but that would defeat the purpose, wouldn’t it!).
You’ve been told that rocking back on your chair is bad, well in swing world it’s GREAT. We’ll sit you in our chair then position you backwards on the edge. It’s up to you to play with gravity, slowly pass through the point of no return and enjoy. Seatbelt provided.
Our commitment to safety, inclusiveness and awesomeness
