What to Expect
Drive over or choose to get a FREE limousine ride from your accommodation to the most amazing drop zone in NZ.

Aboard our unique plane, you will take a spectacular scenic flight as a window-framed taste of the view to come.

Reaching height the door opens and the adrenaline kicks in. With your heart in your throat and your blood rushing through your ears, you jump…

You’ll free-fall at 200km/h! Make sure you keep your eyes open – you can now see from the East to the West Coast; from White Island to Taranaki; the gorgeous Tongariro National Park and the clear waters of Lake Taupo.

After the parachute ride and a soft landing you’ll be able to share the whole experience with family and friends.

We offer exclusive camera packages where you can choose your own songs.

Your footage is professionally edited and includes four interviews so you can re-live your emotions during the whole journey.

Great experience. We were a group of 6 friends and could go on a plane and jump together. So that was really great. I did a 9000ft jump in Mercer before, but I reaaally loved the view in Taupo. Also the 12000ft was a good height to experience because the free fall was longer. I

Woohoo! Thanks so much for the awesome review - even though you didn't jump I'm glad you still enjoyed the experience and watching the nervous faces! So glad it was such a great experience for your group, we'd happily have them back again any day - and maybe next time we can get you to jump too?! Thanks again ;-)

Amazing experience. If you going to jump, go for 15000ft or higher because the freefall will be much longer than the 12000ft

Thanks for the great review! I definitely agree the 15,000ft is a great option as the freefall (the best part of the experience!) so that much longer! Thanks for jumping with us, see you again next time!
