While planning your holiday to New Zealand, save time for the Nevis Swing, (AKA Nevis Arc), at 120m is Queenstown’s newest thrill seeking innovation brought to you buy the gravity pioneers.

Walk across a 70m suspension bridge to the Launch Pad which is suspended high above the valley floor. Then it’s up to you to choose forwards, backwards, alone or with a friend, and finally whether to release yourself or be released by their crew.
