The North Island's most popular bungy jump is a real blast. For an exhilarating experience why not try a water touch? We specialise in getting people wet, whether you'd rather a hand splash or full body dunk, we endeavour to deliver a refreshing adventure.

My two daughters took the tandem swing ride and the experience was fantastic. Safety is of a high level and the staff are very friendly.

Team were brilliant, nice easy location, sheltered areas while waiting, I done both the bungy and cliffhanger, I would advise long socks for bungy as I didn't then had bruising around ankles.

Thanks for the great review Katie and glad you enjoyed both activities. Sorry to hear you had bruising around your ankles though as this is not what normally happens! Must have tightened them extra well! Hope you recovered ok. Cheers, Sonya
