Coronet was an awesome experience! My pilo twas Tom who was clear confident and cool. I booked on the day and have never done anythinglike this before. I'm 50years old and thought I should give it a go. Travelling alone I was hesitant. I needn't have been. One of the best things I've done! Just do it!

Very upset that I was denied a refund when the pilots decided I was too heavy to fly. Instead I was forced to take a disappointing paragliding trip when I preferred my money back. I was denied a lifelong dream today and feel like I want to cry.

Coronet Peak Tandem Paragliding and Hang gliding responds:

Hi Justin N,
I am sorry you feel disappointed. When you booked through our website it stated the maximum weight of 90kg for the hang gliding in various places including on your ticket. You advised us with your body weight of 91kg. The 1kg over would have been acceptable but unfortunately you weighed in at 100kg. We take our safety standards very seriously for the safety of passengers and pilots. Rather than you losing your money, we offered you the paragliding, which you accepted. Please refer to our terms and conditions on your ticket (also on the Q&A page of our website). It states a no refund for exceeding the suggested passenger weight.
Thank you for understanding. Hope you are enjoying the rest of your time in New Zealand.
Regards,
Gitti Tapper

We were picked up by a van and some of the pilots to head to Coronet Peak. Within a few minutes we were set up, walked, ran and flew! You get to steer yourself and end with a corkscrew before landing, 15-20 minutes after take-off. Very relaxed feeling and great views along the way, highly recommend (though very weather dependant, we had to reschedule three times).

Coronet Peak Tandem Paragliding and Hang gliding responds:

Awesome, Bram Hoonhout. Glad you enjoyed your flying experience with us. You are right, pargliding and hang gliding is a very weather dependent activity, similar to skydiving, hence we always recommend to plan in our activity at the beginning of your stay in Queenstown - more chances for flying.
Hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels through New Zealand.

The flight was a little bit too short for the price of $189. But friendly staff and people.

Coronet Peak Tandem Paragliding and Hang gliding responds:

Hi Claudia,
Many thanks for the feedback and am glad you enjoyed your flight experience with our crew. I am sorry to hear you found your flight a little short. We fly off the highest of the flying sites here in Queenstown. Also paragliders and hang gliders have not got a motor that can allow us to stay up in the air for any particular time. Flight times therefore vary as we totally rely on what Mother Nature gives us. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels through New Zealand.

What an incredible experience! A beautiful day, wonderful information, smooth handling from hotel to mountain top--an outstanding opportunity! Omar, my pilot, was thorough with his instructions, very competent, and led me through step-by-step every bit of the way, offering me a top 5 life experience. Thank you!

Safe travels,

A fantastic, phenomenal and exhilarating experience of a lifetime!!

Before this I didn't have the faintest idea of what tandem paragliding really is, until I made the decision to join my friends and just go for it.

Initially, I was pretty nervous at the thought of running off the edge of a cliff. However, I had a very experienced pilot, Keith, who assured me that he'd be in control and all I needed to do was just to follow his instructions. It calmed my nerves down and I took a leap of faith, so to speak and WOW!!

This is one of the best life-changing experience for me ever!!

Way to go. Hip Hip Hooray!.... :)

I would recommend this experience to anyone.

I am thrilled to hear that Keith looked after you well and made sure those nerves didn't interfere in enjoying the experience.
We might see you again next time you are in town.

Had the best time as people were great and knew what they were doing. Every thing was well explained and made you feel at ease. Loved the feeling of being up there and the landing is also one of the best parts, what a rush.
