Flying for the first time, I was quite anxious but Clem made me feel really comfortable. Such an amazing morning with great condition. I will definitely remember this experience and how I start my 24th year. Thanks Clem and all the team.

It's un-natural for man to fly. Doubly so for man to fly and make money doing so, especially when its a tourist attraction. Triply so when such business is at the instant whim of the weather and a dozen other variables that can shut it...More

We had a free day after skiing for days. Trying to look for something special to do with our 9-year old girl. G-force started off from Skyline Queenstown which is close enough, and the view was amazing.

Hi. Skippers Canyon half day tour. Absolutely amazing. Can include a jet boat element but suggest you do Buller Gorge one instead if you're in that area, as it's the best one by far.

Hi joddi n. We have limited storage for valuables in the harness during the flight. If you have bigger items then you are able to leave them in our office. Have a great day, Gavin
