Overview

Its the best rush gravity can give you and the worlds most famous Swing. Go forwards, backwards, upside down, or with a friend, it doesnt matter just go.

Know More about this tour

Meet at the tour office in central Queenstown and embark on the included 40-minute ride to the Nevis Swing. Take in spectacular scenery during the drive.

When you arrive at the swing site, your guide provides a safety briefing and orientation before fitting you into a secure harness. Then head toward the platform, located 525 feet (160 meters) above the Nevis River. The enclosed platform hovers in midair, suspended on cables that run between the cliffs. Follow your guide across a catwalk that leads to the platform a feat that primes your adrenaline for the upcoming swing.

Your guide will secure you to the swing mechanism, which lifts you out from the launch deck. Admire the views while you are suspended above the canyon floor until suddenly your guide releases the swing. Drop into a 100-foot (30-meter) free fall, and then arc into a 985-foot (300-meter) swing over the river valley, reaching speeds up to 75 mph (120 kph). The swing's cable measures almost 400 feet long (120 meters), providing space for an enormous arc.

When you stop swinging, you'll be winched back up to the platform. Video and photo packages are available for purchase if you would like a souvenir of your swing. Then return to Queenstown on a shuttle; expect about four hours for the entire outing.

You can ride in tandem with a friend or go solo. You also have the option to ride forward, backward, upside down or in other configurations that the staff have created.

    both my adults sons went on this and both decided to go upside down - omg they absolutely loved it. The company were exceptional to work with and you knew your safety was their 1 concern. They both had a blast and have watched the movie over and over. Don't hesitate, book it.

    Best thing I did while in Queenstown! The staff were excellent and made sure we were strapped in safely and ready for the swing of a lifetime. Make sure you get the photo/video package to share with all your co-workers, friends and family.

    The ride up to the swing was great, there were some nice views. The swing itself was cool, it was a great rush! Ordering photos and video at the end was also a painless process.
