It was my first time to do bungee but it was Awesome!!! I wish I have plenty of money to do the other things like the flying fox. The staff are very friendly and they are very cautious to make sure you do it right and safe. The food at the cafe is also good.

no pressure from staff, wasn't scared as i used to jump from buildings as a former stunt man. Iwas also able to shout a couple of friends as my jump and theirs didn't exceed my budget.

What can I say about gravity canyon apart from WHAT A RUSH!! I did all 3 of the activites there and I would reccomend it to anyone who is a bit of an adreneline junkie like myself. It has the full range from the flying fox, which will ease you into it, to a full out bungy and bungy swing... More

I did the 80m bungy jump off of the bridge across the canyon. The weather was just beautiful that morning and honestly, the view as you descend is just breathtaking. Primarily because you have realized you just stepped off of a PERFECTLY SAFE BRIDGE! This is utterly about half a second of sheer terror when you realize there is nothing... More

Did the flying fox and it was brilliant! If only it could have lasted longer but at that speed and the reduction in circulation to my head, it's probably best it didn't :) A must do for anyone who isn't a chicken. It's twice the height of the bungee and lasts longer.

I have to say I was very scared of doing a bungy but once I saw the sign saying "if you can't jump, push yourself" I decided to do a bungy, flying fox and swing. The staff were great and put you at ease and the music they have playing up top also helps you get charged. I opted for... More

It was exhilerating just watching the bungy but I did give the flying fox a try. The wind whistling by was a bit of a shock as I didnt expect that!
