Awesome views

We arrived late - and didn't get to see any daring persons on the flying thing but could imagine it as the gorge is gorgeous, narrow, deep and cold.

I somehow got convinced to ride the flying fox that travels through the canyon at 160klm whilst lying down in a sling and harness.

This is a great attraction to even just watch. Beautiful part of the North Island and the drive to in and out from SH1 is great too. Obviously you pay to participate but its free to look and the cafe is OK too.

The staff are awesome. Very professional but also relaxed and funny putting you at ease. I have done all three attractions (swing, flying fox and bungy) and the swing is my fabourite by far. Maximum thrill!!

My 3rd time at Gravity Canyon. There is always friends and visitors to take there. I'm an adrenaline junkie and I get a good fix at Gravity Canyon. Top location, top facility, and fun helpful staff. I give this 5 stars for fun and a good day out. I'm a Kiwi living in UAE.
