Looking for an extreme adrenaline hit? You'll get it when you take on the Shotover Canyon Fox or Canyon Swing! Stand on the edge of the platform and try to steel your nerves as you look down to the canyon floor. 

Gravity is a toy.  Come out and play.

Canyon Swing

  • 109 meters high
  • 60 m Freefall
  • 200m Swing
  • Choose your jump style! 

Launch yourself from the 109m high platform, free fall vertically alongside the cliff face for 60m then swing in the famous Shotover Canyon for 200m. The Shotover Canyon Swing is the world’s highest cliff jump.

Choose your jump style! Jump, leap or be released, solo or tandem.  Upside down or right way up, so many options!  Shotover Canyon Swing’s unique jump styles include The Chair, The Slide, Gimp Boy Goes To Hollywood and so many more.  There are over 70 styles to choose from!   Can’t decide on which jump style?  Just go twice!!!

Canyon Fox

  • 182 meters high
  • 2 massive zip lines totalling 445m
  • Fly forwards or backwards

Try not to freak out as you run up the custom made, steep, 8 metre ramp, launching yourself over off the 182 metre high platform into the canyon! This is the closest you will get to base jumping off a cliff without a parachute! The zip line catches you, making you feel like superman as you fly across the canyon! It's so much fun you'll wish it wasn't over, oh wait, it's not! You get to go back across the canyon again, and on the second line, you and a friend can 'race' each other back to the other side!
