Speaking of New Zealand's most exciting extreme sports, Neves' super-shot is definitely in the top three.
The most exciting skydiving and bungee in people's impressions, at most double the gravitational acceleration to fall freely. However, Neves super-shot, with a specific launcher, accelerates to 100 km/h with three times the gravitational acceleration in 1.5 seconds, and crosses the Nevis Canyon at an altitude of 150 meters. These numbers are enough to make people excited.
Nevis Canyon is a private territory, you must take their bus to enter, 45 minutes drive from Queenstown, the last section is still Panshan Road, thanks to the modified bus, strong horsepower.
Twenty or thirty people, more than half of the challenges are bungee jumping, seven or eight people play the less exciting Nevis swing, only two people participate in the super catapult.
I didnt respond to the foreigner in front of him, he just flew away, I was stunned. It was my turn to wear equipment to realize the fear. The staff asked me if I had any questions. I have a blank mind. What is the problem? I only meant that my hands and feet were cold and my body was shaking.
People hang in the air, listening to the countdown of the staff, I took a deep breath, "three, two, ", "ah ... not yet shouted!" I am like an angry little The bird was bounced out, and the blood of the whole body instantly rushed to the head. The adrenaline rushed up, and it was about to hit the mountain. The rope tied up on the body worked. I was swayed back like a swing, and then rocked back like a pendulum. Finally return to zero.
The staff pulled me back and asked how I felt? There are countless grass mud horses in my mind, and the surface is calm and auspicious, Amazing!
