Injection of pure adrenalin on The Nevis Human Catapult

Remember when you made your own human catapult? It was a good idea in theory. Yet, using a bicycle tube wasn't such a great idea, was it?  And the whole ‘broken collarbone’ episode left a sour taste in your mouth. Understandable.

So, before giving it another go and undoubtedly keeping your local hospital busy for another few months, why not consider satisfying your thrill-seeking urges with The Nevis Human Catapult instead.

It's HUUUUGE!

This unique experience hurls you over the remote Nevis Valley, (that's near Queenstown, New Zealand, but you knew that, didn't you?) at breakneck speeds (although not neck-breaking, thankfully, as this catapult enjoys a 100% safety record…). So, you are guaranteed one hell of a ride!

 Yeah - in a New Zealand Accent - it's AAAAAAAAAAAWESOOOOOOOOOME.

But what’s the deal with the Nevis Human Catapult?

Unlike your traditional bungee jump, The Nevis Human Catapult propels you both up and out 150 meters across the Nevis Valley.

It's like flying, not falling.

You will have plenty of opportunities to reconsider, sob and scream for help as you are gently lifted 130 meters above the ground (i.e. pretty damn high), but we know you wouldn't dream of that. 

Then… BOOM – you are suddenly hurtling at speeds of up to 100km an hour in just 1.5 seconds. 

Think of yourself as a human Bugatti Veyron, as you feel 3Gs of force slap your face sideways and a hefty dose of adrenaline to go with it. The only advice we can give is to wrap up warm, don’t look down, and probably don’t bother styling your hair in the morning…


In Short

  • The safest way to enjoy a human catapult
  • Reach speeds of almost 100km an hour in 1.5 seconds flat
  • Takes place in the scenic Nevis Valley, near Queenstown, New Zealand
  • Don’t bother style your hair…
