What you can expect

The world's biggest swing awaits at the Nevis Bungy platform in Queenstown - one of the most unique and adrenaline-filled experiences in New Zealand! The Nevis Swing offers the best of both worlds of vertical and horizontal blood-pumping fun, beginning with a release from a spot 120m above the floor of a spectacular NZ canyon and swinging to the other side of the valley at speeds of up to 120 kilometres per hour.

A variety of swing options are available for you to choose from, ensuring you get the exact experience you're after for your money - such choices as regular swing, upside-down, backwards, tandem and many more are entirely up to you; if you're feeling especially keen, why not try several styles? With a rope longer than a rugby field and a swing through a truly spectacular environment, the Queenstown Nevis Swing is an essential on the to-do list for any thrill seeker visiting New Zealand - so don't delay, and book today!

This was amazing and the perfect amount of scary for my fear of heights

This was amazing and the perfect amount of scary for my fear of heights. I loved it and will highly recommend! I did the Nevis Swing and after the initial drop it was smooth sailing from there it was absolutely awesome and everyone around me enjoyed my scream as it was so loud because I asked her not to do a countdown and just to drop me.

All the staff were friendly and energetic

All the staff were friendly and energetic, from those checking us in, the bus driver and the staff at the Nevis Swing. It was an extremely enjoyable experience and I will definitely be recommending AJ Hackett and the Nevis Swing to friends and family.
