WHAT TO EXPECT
Imagine this... you're harnessed into a giant swing, feeling safe, just admiring the view... and then your cliffhanger guide pulls the pin! You plummet towards the river, tear through the air, then gently swing in the breeze. Sound fun? Then what are you waiting for? The Cliffhanger extreme swing is the perfect Taupo activity to get your heart racing.
It's a great activity for those a little afraid or challenged by the idea of leaping from a platform head-first. The Cliffhanger is a feet-first freefall that still gives you mind-blowing rush! It's just like a bungy but feels that bit less scary.
Usually done in a seated position, you'll be harnessed up, and left hanging mid-air for a few seconds before your guide pulls the release pin. And then, away you go! Reaching speeds of up to 70 km/h and arcing up to a 180-degree angle, this is much more than a swing in the park!
