  • Not just a thrill ride, this experience includes transfers from Queenstown, a scenic 15-20 mins flight to altitude, and a thorough safety briefing.

Prep, jump, plummet

Begin your hair-raising adventure with a pick-up from Queenstown and a comprehensive safety orientation from a skilled tandem master. Next, gear up and ascend up to 15,000ft above the Wakatipu basin in a 15-20 minute flight offering bird's-eye views of the mountains and lakes. You're now ready for the ultimate adrenaline rush! Expect sweat, fear, and every self-preserving urge as you step out of the aircraft door, securely harnessed to your Jumpmaster, and freefall at 200 km/h for a heart-thumping 25 to 60 seconds.

Descending bliss

Once your parachute is deployed, glide back to earth in a serene 4-5 minute canopy ride, soaking up the majestic vistas of Lake Wakatipu and the surrounding mountains. Choose from 9,000ft, 12,000ft, or 15,000ft skydive options, each offering a different freefall duration, from 25 seconds to a full minute of pure adrenaline. To commemorate this unforgettable experience, consider purchasing the premium skydive photo and video pack upon check-in. This unique keepsake, showcasing your thrilling plunge above New Zealand's most breathtaking scenery, is an ideal memento of this exhilarating adventure.
