It is one of the primary iconic adventure centres in Queenstown, more than worthy of a visit. This was where the start of an adventure for AJ Hackett took place. There is even a zipline experience offered. There is even a snack centre for you to kill your hunger or thirst.

Nevis Bungy: This adventure location has a 134-meter long Bungy and also one of the world’s biggest swings. This is best for people who want to take their Bungy experience to the next level. The rush that is felt here is unmatchable.

Ledge Bungy: This location offers freestyle Bungy which means that it is up to to the jumper to decide which way they’d want to launch off the ledge. To get to the launching spot, there is a small gondola ride that you will have to take across a spectacular view underneath. This spot is ultimately unique in its location and experience.
