The experience was fantastic...being well versed in safety hanging equipment, I was amazed at the overall great condition of all their equipment and the overall focus on rider safety. The staff was friendly and helpful and seemed very aware of exactly how to safely execute the process. No complaints about the Fox.

I've never laughed and crap myself so much at the same time. Enjoyed it that much i did a 2nd jump. Two very funny guys at the top that scare the be-jeez out of you before you've even started lol; but fear not folk "Safety' is always paramount and you're in very safe hands...looking back at the video you can...

As I'm not good with heights and rapidly approaching 60, I did wonder if I'd been caught up in the excitement when I agreed to do the Fox. Oh and let's get one thing straight. I could NEVER do the Swing but the Fox appealed as you're in a harness.and able to hold on to something. The experience is in... More

I did the Canyon Swing backwards and it could've been such a great experience, but as soon as I realised I needed a bit of help to jump and asked them for a countdown, the guy said because I'd asked for it he wasn't going to do it. Really disappointing. So I basically had to stand there and amp myself... More

My young son Declan had been looking forward to this jump for years and was not disappointed one bit. Many, many thanks to Brad, Cam and the others in the gantry team and also to Sophie, the polite and efficient town office booking manager, the Kingston-upon-Thames girl. See you again sometime. Cheers.

Had such a blast! It was great watching a few people go before me, trying different jumps - going down a slide, being pushed off backwards, tandem upside down etc. unfortunately the girl in front of me took a while so when it was my turn there was no mucking around! The guys are playful but professional, they joked with... More

I had chickened out of the idea of doing a bungee however this looked a lot more thrilling! Amazing experience. The staff were really friendly and classic wind up merchants! We ended up doing two jumps it was that fun!

Great experience that takes your breath away. Stunning views and so many different ways to step off the edge. The guys on the top make the day and join in the fun, encouraging everyone and make the experience worth it. Well worth doing twice!

We had such an amazing time doing the swing. The staff were all fantastic! Brad who was our driver/guide made the whole thing that much better. We're on our honey moon and are both terrified of heights but the whole team made it so much easier. So happy we overcame our fears and did it. So worth it

As an option to bungee jumping, we tried the canyon swing. My oldest daughter wanted to try this rather than bungee jumping and it was a blast. We did the basic drop, but they have many options for what you may be willing to do. Both of us enjoyed it and it was very safe and the staff were friendly... More
