Location

One of Queenstown's must-do activities, the Shotover Canyon Swing and Fox combo will even give hardcore adventurers butterflies. Combining two thrilling adventures - the Shotover Canyon Swing and the Shotover Canyon Fox - these activities cement Queenstown's status as the 'Adventure Capital of the World'. The Shotover Canyon will see you drop from a 109 metre high platform above Shotover River for a smooth and exhilarating 200 metre swing. Reaching speeds of up to 150 kph you can enjoy the swing on your own or with a friend. To shake things up a bit from the normal adventure activity, there's a jump menu to let you choose how you take your 60 metre free fall.

You can go backwards, forwards, from a chair or do a flip to name a few. The second adventure included in this awesome package is the Shotover Canyon Fox. The first of its kind, the Canyon Fox takes you 182 metres above the Shotover River on a launch rail, or run off the 8 metre ramp, before dropping you down 5 metres and flying you 240 metres across the Canyon. Then take on line 2 with a friend and race back to the other side, 138 metres above the canyon.

Both of these activities offer incredible views of the Shotover Canyon if you can bear to open your eyes and hold in the screams. This package includes return transport from Queenstown and the chance to bring along a friend for free to watch you lose your mind. Taking around 3.5 hours to complete, trips depart every half hour from 8:30am to 5:30pm during summer and from 9:30am to 3:30pm in winter. All you'll need to bring is yourself, closed in footwear and appropriate clothing, the rest is awaiting you at the launch site. Book your Shotover Canyon Swing and Fox online today to ensure you have the most memorable and epic time on your next trip to Queenstown.

Jump Styles

  • Flips - Fancy showing off your athletic prowess? You've got three options: forwards, backwards or gainers. Tumble your way through freefall before swinging out down in the canyon below. Try to beat the record: 10 forwards flis by flipping Philip!
  • The Chair - 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 The Tandem Chair - We're delighted to bring you the latest addition to our jumpstyle collection - The Tandem Chair! The World Famous 'Chair' is now double the fun as you can now do it tandem!
  • The Cutaway - Our easiest launch by far. We will 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
  • Backwards - Standing with your heels over the edge of the platform. Hands behind your head and slowly fall back into the canyon below. The view of the platform rocketing away from you is truly freaky. Great option for experienced jumpers
  • Gimp Boy Goes to Hollywood - We'll suspend you upside down over the canyon, staring directly at the canyon floor, arching your back and reaching for the river below. Keep your eyes open and wait to be released, you'll swoop down towards the river - eyeballs first
  • Forwards - 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

Shotover Canyon Fox

  • World’s first ever launch rail that gives ‘foxers’ a crazy dropping sensation
  • Make your way over the edge of the cliff 182m above the Shotover River
  • After the drop it’s a high speed 240m ride across the canyon
  • Soak in the views, if your eyes are open that is, embracing the height above the waters of the Shotover

Brittney 2 years ago This was hands down the highlight of my trip! I swallowed my nerves and tackled both adrenaline-pumping activities and I'm glad I did! After being too scared to move on the Fox (it's very high) and getting the guys to slowly push me off, I made up for it on the Swing by doing the tandem Gimp Boy Goes To Hollywood (upside down) and I'm glad I did! This experience will stay with me for a while and the videos and photos were great to look back on! Loved it!
