Definition: Highly adrenalinised sensation that is created by the unique combination of natural geography and ingenuity.

The rush starts at our platform as you leap or launch from the 109 metre high cliff edge. Gravity accelerates you for 60 metres of freefall just metres from the vertical cliff face. Reaching speeds of 150kph as the canyonous rocks rush towards you before the ropes smoothly swing you past. Whatever your jumpstyle this is 200 metres of very scary CANYON RUSHTM – additional underpants recommended.

At Shotover Canyon Swing no one’s pushing you through at breakneck speed. With each trip limited to 11 passengers (including space for spectators) there’s no rush and no crowds. You’ve time to soak in the surroundings – one of the most spectacular valleys in the region; to chat with your driver – who’ll act as host throughout the trip; and to have fun without felling pressured. Your jumpmaster will expertly “manage” your fear factor while ensuring your enjoyment. Whether you’re confident or timid we know exactly how to ensure you have a great time.

Launching yourself from 109 metres into a canyon is a scary move. With over 70 different solo and tandem jumpstyles we can expertly manage the scariness for everyone – from knitting nana’s to adrenalin junkies! All these different styles are made possible by the unique combination of our chest and seat safety harness, cliff top platform, special release mechanism and a whole lot of product sampling!!
