Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our pilots were amazing and we felt safe the whole trip. They gave the experience of a lifetime. We are in our late 60's and loved every minute.

We launched from Coronet Peak due to better wind conditions, great experience and a real buzz, but very very short. We were in the air for less than 10 minutes, which I think is a little average for the price vs other activities we did.

Dear 408wesg, We're stoked to hear that you have chosen to undertake an adventure that is fuelled by nature! It's wonderful to hear that you had a great time. We appreciate your review as it allows us to highlight the comprehensive nature of our paragliding experience and detail the timeframes as part of the activity. Regarding the length of your flight, each paragliding flight is unique, and the route and distance covered can vary based on factors such as wind conditions and safety considerations.   Furthermore, regarding the length of the product overall, one of the most common questions we receive is regarding the duration of the activity. On our website, we suggest allowing 1.5 hours for the entire journey. This includes time for catching the gondola, check-in, safety briefing, flight, landing, reviewing media, and unwinding or moving on to your next Queenstown adventure. This approach ensures you can make the most of your day while experiencing our activity fully. It's a standard practice across the industry here in Queenstown, much like when other companies such as bungy or the Jet-boating operations estimate the duration of their activities. Our team is always ready to provide guidance and assistance to ensure a positive experience. I trust your pilots provided an engaging, enjoyable, and professional experience. GForce is proudly owned and operated by the Pilots. Warm regards, Jack Operations and Safety, GForce Paragliding.

weather did not allow us to fly in our originally booked time slot in the morning which was not unexpected and were told to meet at another time to fly from a different place (meet at 12 pm at the base of the Gondola) via email. We replied the email to confirm we are okay about it and will be there. arrived around 11:35 am, and waited for more than half an hour at the base, no one was there or replying to us. We then took the gondola up to reach their office and were told that it was not confirmed and the bus to the new departure site had departed already... Their excuse was not being able to check through the emails and that if they didn't reply to our reply in the email the whole thing is not confirmed...?????. Please if unable to handle emails do not tell the customer to reach you via email. Cancelled schedules for the paragliding experience but turns out to be a disappointment.

Had the best time with G Force Paragliding! The flight takes off from an area just above the Skyline Luge and is easily accessible by gondola followed by chair lift.

Once fitted out with harness and attached to the pilot, we walked a few steps then ran a few more before becoming airborne.

It truely is the best way to get a bird's eye view of Queenstown and enjoy the thrill of flying through the air. It is quiet and serene.

I also got to enjoy some action with some aerobatic manoeuvres. It was amazing!

This is an unforgettable experience. They take safety very seriously and my pilot Thomas explained the whole process very well.
The views are unbelievable. I will never forget this flight.
If you like an adrenaline filled activity -this is for you. Well worth the money!

This was an unforgettable experience for my husband and I. Our pilots were very friendly, assuring and experienced. I got nervous around takeoff and mine talked me through everything that was happening, and gave me the option to have a chill breezy flight or add some twists and turns. We always felt safe and the view was stunning.

The only thing I'd suggest for GForce to change is including photos in the price, or lowering the price of the photos significantly. $80 is quite a lot of an extra to add on when you're already paying for a luxury experience.

Thank you for the amazing review! It's fantastic to know that your paragliding adventure was a highlight. We take your feedback seriously, and I'd like to clarify that the $80 photo and video package is managed individually by our pilots, which is why it's separate from our standard pricing. We will look into your suggestion to make this experience more accessible. Hope to see you soaring with us again soon!

Our 15yo daughter was the only one of us brave enough to give this a go yesterday. She had the most amazing experience and hasn't stopped smiling or talking about it ever since. Thank you George for being so awesome, and for letting her take control for a short time. She wants to do it again! It was worth every cent to see the pure joy and excitement on her face, and it will be a memory she will keep forever.

We're absolutely chuffed to hear about your daughter's brilliant experience! It's always a joy to see someone, especially a young adventurer, embrace the skies with such enthusiasm. Love the big shout-out to George for providing an unforgettable flight we will pass this feedback on. We can't wait to welcome your family back for another go—perhaps with all of you flying this time!

I loved it. It was great that I could just book a flight half an hour before I started... So I knew the weather is great. My pilot was awesome. The view incredible. Nice photos in the end.
One negative point: The flight was too short. I don't know how they calculate the time.

But I absolutely recommend it and I would do it again.

It was the experience of a lifetime - the highlight of our time in Queenstown! Thrilling and peaceful at the same time. Janik was great as my tandem partner; I felt completely safe. And of course the views were spectacular. I highly recommend doing this!
