Queenstown & Bungy Jumping

The first thing that comes to mind when people think of New Zealand is adventure tourism. Queenstown has been dubbed the 'adventure capital of the world' - so it is no surprise that it is here where the Bungy phenomenon all began. It started in the 80s when AJ Hackett and Henry van Asch developed and tested Bungy cords, both convinced that people would pay to experience the huge rush of adrenaline associated with Bungy. After extensive testing and with the help of Auckland University Scientists, the first jumps were made, and in November 1988, the World's first Commercial Bungy Operation opened at the Kawarau Bridge. Nearly 30 years later, over 3.5 million jumps have taken place, and AJ Hackett now operates the 'world's most innovative gravity related products anywhere on the planet'. 


The Nevis Swing


Not only is the Nevis Swing the biggest in New Zealand, but it is also the biggest in the whole world! You'll start by being lifted above the launch deck, suspended 160 metres above the canyon floor. Look around and take in the awesome views before being suddenly released and catapulted towards the other side of the deep valley at 120kph in a giant swing motion.


If you're brave enough, keep your eyes wide open and experience the thrill on another level! The Nevis Swing offers many swing styles - Upside-down? Backwards? The Truck & Trailer, some ying-yang action? Alone or with a friend? No problem! You can try as many styles as you can handle. You'll be so full of adrenaline you'll keep wanting to go back for more!
