Book - Ledge Swing

SWING OVER QUEENSTOWN AT THE TOP OF THE SKYLINE GONDOLA


As the Gondola rises high above Queenstown, your heart will start racing...you’re heading to the home of The Ledge Swing!

This stomach-dropper Swing will have you screaming when you release the cord yourself (yep it's all on you!) to swing out past the people sightseeing inside the Gondola cabins heading for the top. 

Make sure you take in the incredible scenery as it doesn't get much better than this!

SWING FACTS: 

  • 47 Metre Swing
  • 450 Metres above Queenstown
  • Self Release 
  • Epic Iconic Queenstown Views for that perfect photo!

What age do I have to be to Bungy Jump or Swing?

All Bungy Jumpers and Swingers must be at least 10 years old and 35KGS.

What are the weight and height restrictions for a Bungy and Swing?

There are no height restrictions on Bungy Jumping or Swinging.

Ledge Bungy - 35kg min/127 kg max
Ledge Swing - 35kg min/107 kg max

What is the difference between a Bungy and a Swing?

A Bungy Jump utilises AJ Hackett custom made Bungy Cords. After free-falling the cord stretches out to allow you to bounce a few times in an adrenalin fuelled but safe manner. Whilst the Swing attaches to you via wire cables and the Swing rope, swingers never bounce. After a short free-fall the wire or rope catches you and the sensation is the same as a roller-coaster and you will swing in a massive arc.

Do I have to wear shoes?

Covered footwear is mandatory for the Nevis Bungy. As for the Kawarau Bridge Bungy, The Ledge and the Nevis Swing, you may choose to wear shoes or go barefoot.

Can my friends and family come watch me?

The AJ Hackett Bungy sites have the capacity to host spectators, depending on which site it is there can be costs associated with spectating. The Ledge is accessed via Gondola, tickets from $26 per adult will apply.

Can I drive myself?

No... Te Ledge Bungy site is only accessible via the Gondola or Ben Lomond forest walking tracks.

How long does it take?

We recommend you to allow at least 2 hours for the Ledge Bungy and to explore the Skyline complex.

Do I need to book ahead?

We strongly suggest to all customers that they book at least 48hrs in advance for all activities to ensure that they secure a time and date that best suits them.

What's the difference between the Ledge Swing and the Nevis Swing?

Firstly, size is the main difference. The Nevis Swing is the World's Biggest Swing - it is a 70m drop that then swings in a massive 300m arc, hurtling you through the valley at crazy speeds. The Ledge Swing is a rope style swing of roughly 40m but located 400m above the magnificent Queenstown resort.

What's the difference between the 3 Bungy Sites in Queenstown?

The main difference is the size; the Nevis Bungy is almost 3 times higher than the Kawarau Bridge and The Ledge Bungy sites. The Nevis is our big one- 134m of pure adrenaline action, wearing a full body harness that attaches at both your waist and feet.

The Kawarau is the original - the only site that allows you to get wet if your heart desires and the only one where you are lowered down into a raft after your jump.  It is also the only site in Queenstown where you can tandem Bungy!

The Ledge Bungy is the only site where your feet are not tied- it is a full body harness jump that allows you do a freestyle jump, back flips, running off etc

Is the Gondola included for the Ledge Swing?

Unfortunately, we do not include the Gondola ticket in the price of the Ledge Bungy or the Ledge Swing. However, we do offer a combo for the Ledge Bungy/Ledge Swing and 5 Luge rides including a Gondola ticket, which is a great alternative!

Can I jump if I have a medical condition? 

Please inform the AJ Hackett Bungy Crew if you have any of the following conditions: High & Low Blood Pressure, Heart Condition, Epilepsy, Pregnancy, Fragile Skin, Neurological Disorder, Bone Disorder, Dislocations, Diabetes, Asthma, Prosthetics, Cosmetic Implants, Panic/Anxiety Attack, Recent Sprains & Muscular Injuries. These conditions do not necessarily exclude a person from Bungy/ Catapult/Swings. It is important for all customers to declare any of the above medical conditions when they check in. For any other pre-existing medical condition please talk to the expert Bungy crew and they will make an assessment on a case by case basis. Please bring any relevant written doctors’ advice with you.
