- Take on the world’s biggest human catapult
- Reach speeds of up 1o 100km/hour in 1.5 seconds
If ever there was a name that would appeal to the thrill seeker it is this: the Nevis Catapult.
Welcome to one of Queenstown’s newest, and most hair-raising extreme activities. This is
the Biggest Human Catapult in the World. You will be flying at up speeds of around 100km
an hour, in 1.5 seconds flat. Are you seriously even considering this? Maybe you want to
choose a different experience instead, like flower arranging or a spa day?
Ok you read this far so you must be seriously interested. Or crazy. Or both. So here’s the
deal. You’ll be transported by 4WD from Queenstown into the Nevis Valley just outside the
city, and strapped in for A.J. Hackett’s latest masterpiece. You will experience up to 3Gs of
force as you’re propelled 150m up and across the valley for the ultimate swinging sensation.
There is no way to describe the feeling of that first blast as you’re launched into open air -
chances are you’ll never, ever have a rush like this again.
