First time to do such exciting activities. Unforgettable, Amazing and the 45 sec. free fall is toooo excited for me, Ha!! Ha!! But anyway, this is a nice fly. Thanks all the crew and Thanks GOD!
Jump out of a plane at 12,000 feet (3.6 km) on this tandem skydive in Taupo, the North Island’s premier destination for water sports and white-knuckle outdoor activities. Begin with a 20-minute flight over Lake Taupo, Tongariro National Park, and Mt. Ruapehu. Then, leap out of the plane with your experienced instructor and free-fall for almost a minute at terminal velocity, reaching speeds of 124 mph (200 kph). Upgrade on the day to get photos or a video of your experience. Hotel pickup available upon request.
Choose the departure time that best suits your vacation schedule, and then either drive yourself to the drop-zone or get a pickup from your Taupo accommodation.
On arrival, check in with the reservations team and take part in a safety briefing. Then, gear up and meet your tandem instructor who you will be connected to during the skydive. If you’ve decided to upgrade to receive a video of your experience, you’ll record a short interview before boarding the plane.
Ascend to 12,000 feet, taking in bird’s-eye views of Mt Ruapehu, Tongariro National Park, Mt Doom from The Lord of the Rings and Lake Taupo, New Zealand’s largest lake. When you’ve reached altitude, move toward the door, dangle your legs over the side and leap into the air.
Free-fall at hair-raising speeds of up to 124 mph until you reach around 5,000 feet, when your instructor will deploy the parachute. Then, catch your breath and soak up incredible views of the North Island during the gentle canopy ride back down to the ground.
Your experience finishes with a drop-off back at your original departure point.
