Gravtiy Canyon was one of the stops my Red Carpet Tours group made. Overall, the staff was really friendly and helpful. I went tandem with another girl in my group and the specialists did make a few jokes about not knowing how to attach two people, but once I got on the platform and started freaking out, they were helpful...

Had the best time. If your looking for a scenic drive with a thrill at the end then "Gravity canyon" is the place to stop in. So go and see "Tomo" and the gang for the time of your life. They have a flying fox, a bungy jump and a bungy swing all as mad as the other, plus a... More

I started the day not planning to jump at all but after seeing a few jumps from the viewing platform, decided to take the plunge, so to speak. Tried out all three activities (Flying Fox, Swing and Bungy Jump) and loved them all. The staff were all very helpful and kind (especially when I almost chickened out on the bungy... More

Gravity Canyon has Bungi Jumping and the Giant Swing, but one for the less adventurous try the Flying Fox. Given as a gift by the family we, with lots of trepidation, did it. It was fantastic travelling about 1km at about 160kph down a canyon. The hardest part was climbing up the hill to the topmost point and then the... More

You have got to give it a try, bit of a drive but worth it. Plenty to do, nice café and great fun. Not as well known as the queens town bunjies but in my opinion better value and a better jump

Have been here several times with different members of the family. First visit was with my mum where we did the hydrolift. Have since been back with my mum and husband and did the flying fox. Bit of a trek to get up to the flying fox but effort is rewarded by the ride down through the stunning canyon. They... More

One of the highlights of my trip to New Zealand. The staff are very friendly and professional and happy to share personal experiences of the activties. me and a friend chose to do the flying fox. The walk up to the starting point is a bit of a killer, but I guess if your ticker can withstand the steep hike... More
