Inject 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 keeping your local hospital surgeons 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, near Queenstown, New Zealand 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!

In your best New Zealand Accent - it's AAAAAAAAAAAWESOOOOOOOOOME.

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 more flying than falling. Look!

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'd never chicken out.

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

Think of yourself as the human equivalent of a Bugatti Veyron... but with a face and a hairstyle. Well, you used to have a hairstyle!

As you feel 3Gs of force slap your face sideways and a hefty dose of adrenaline, just go with it - you kinda have to once you get going! 

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… there's really no point!

In Short

  • The Nevis Human Catapult; the ninth safest way to enjoy flying!
  • Reach speeds of almost 100km an hour... within 1.5 seconds flat
  • Takes place in the scenic Nevis Valley, near Queenstown, New Zealand
