Visitors to New Zealand can attest to just how thrilling some of our tourist attractions can be.

A video on LiveLeak shows an anonymous British tourist taking on a bungee swing at Mokai Gravity Canyon in Taihape, New Zealand.

The clip starts with the shirtless traveller being instructed to "look up at the sky bro", before staff release the hold.

Connected only by a wire around his waist, the man falls while screaming dramatically and sticking out his tongue.

While the experience is called the "Canyon Swing", there's no seat and riders can find themselves flipped upside down.

After the 50 metre drop is complete, the tourist can be seen swinging above the water, while shaking his head and laughing.

And as the swing slows down, he's already keen for another go, asking twice if he can "go again".
