Queenstown | The Nevis Bungy / Swing
Coasterz 'n' Canyonz Blog Day 15
2 ways down!!!!!!!!! Today it was the reason for the whole holiday. The Nevis Highwire Bungy and Nevis Swing.
Nevis Bungy - New Zealand's highest!
The pod you jump from is suspended from wires spanning the top of a very deep valley.
This small shuttle uses the wires to transport you to the pod. If you think doing a bungy is scary, this comes a close second.
After "training" in Auckland last Monday, now was the acid test - could he do a 134m drop?
Nevis Swing (World's Highest!)!
It must be said, this place is buzzing and has to be one of the best places on earth... (no we didn't do the paragliding!)
In summary, the Nevis Bungy has been a long-time ambition of Ian's and it didn't disappoint. Delivering everything you would expect, and then some, it's got to be one of the most thrilling things either of us have ever done. The swing was also a lot larger and thrilling then either anticipated.
In just 1 day, Queenstown has proved it is THE place to be. Thanks to all the AJ Hackett staff today - you guys ROCK!
