Location

Built on the edge of a cliff that towers above New Zealand's Shotover River, tickets for the Shotover Canyon Swing will let you embrace the defiance of gravity as the rush starts at our platform as you leap or launch from the 109m-high cliff edge! Accelerate for 60 metres of free fall just metres from the face of the cliff and reach speeds of up to 150 kilometres per hour as the canyons rocks rush towards you - before the ropes swing you smoothly past.

With a selection of jump styles available that allow for all scales of adrenaline junkies (that range from scary to very, very, very scary!) there is something for everyone, all of which are made possible by our unique combination of chest and seat safety harnesses, cliff top platform, special release mechanism and endless hours of experimentation!

  • Able to operate in almost all weather conditions
  • Choose your jump style on the day

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

Mich 3 years ago Biggest Adrenaline rush ever! Be warned of the crew there as they trick you - you think they are letting go of the rope and often they dont! I loved the banter!! Ive done Bungy before and enjoyed this more as you kind of get two experiences in one - a bungy and then a swing! Also swinging over the canyon is unreal!!!

Operator profile
Queenstown, NZ Shotover Canyon Swing

The Shotover Canyon Swing opened in 2002, while the Canyon Fox was added later in 2016 - and both offer incredible Shotover Canyon views..

Built on the edge of a cliff that towers above New Zealand's Shotover River, tickets for the Shotover Canyon Swing will let you embrace the defiance of gravity as the rush starts at our platform, we recommend booking in advance to take the leap or launch from the 109m-high cliff edge!
