Experience something completely different on Queenstown's Sky Swing at The Ledge. Not exactly the swing you had in your backyard, The Ledge Swing takes your plunge to a whole new level — 1,312 feet (400 meters) over Queenstown. Harness in then fall into the sky and pull the release cord to sway on a rope-style swing, with prime views over Lake Wakatipu.
The Ledge Sky Swing experience in Queenstown
Swing above Lake Wakatipu from a purpose-built platform called The Ledge
Choose from multiple time options to suit your schedule, then make your way to the Queenstown Skyline Gondola (own expense) for the ride to The Ledge, a platform situated at a thrilling 1,312 feet (400 meters) above Queenstown.
Start your session getting suited up in a harness by an expert guide who provides a briefing that conforms to rigorous safety procedures. Once you’re lowered to the release station, feel the thrill take over as you fall, then pull the release cord to arc back and forth on Queenstown's only urban swing. Once you stop swinging, you'll be winched back up to the platform.

If you like this sort of thing, I recommend the swing! Great views of Queenstown and walking out on that Ledge certainly has the fear factor. Be prepared to pull your own cord to release yourself and enjoy the initial drop-a fantastic rush. Loved it.
