Experience an adrenaline rush unlike any other as you are propelled into the air by the worlds biggest and most extreme catapult – the Nevis Catapult!
Calling all adrenaline junkies! This unique and thrilling experience is bucket list material - guaranteed to make your heart race and excitement levels peak!
The Nevis Catapult is the biggest and most extreme of its kind in the world.
As you walk onto the platform, the stunning Nevis Valley looms before you in all its glory. After a safety briefing by our experienced, professional team you will be geared up before being hitched and raised up almost horizontally.
For a moment, take a deep breath and mentally prepare yourself and then feel the rush as you are propelled 150m up and out across the Nevis Valley. You will reach speeds of almost 100 km an hour in 1.5 seconds flat, experiencing up to 3Gs of force!
The hair-raising drop is the ultimate thrill! Your blood will rush but once you come back you’ll be screaming for another hit.
Not for the faint-hearted, come and see for yourself why our team dub this the “Thriller”!
