Skydiving and bungee

Me and my wife will be in the queenstown area in early december. I was wondering where a better place to skydive was out of queenstown or at lake wanaka? This will be our sencond time skydiving. Also what would you suggest for a good first bungee? Its sounds kinda strange but bungee makes me more nervous than jumping out of a plane.

Speaking of exciting rides. A friend got bitten by the white water bug. Anyway after a couple of increasing grade he was told "skippers" is the ultimate. Anyway he signed up for it. Came back to say that after the chopper ride to the "off" point for the raft, that the raft ride was "ho Hum"!

If you want a real adrenaline rush day try the awesomw foursome:

Nevis BUngy, Shotover jet, helicopter, white water rafting.

If that dont grab ya nothing will.

And it only costs $NZ 555 for the day

If the choice is out of the Ledge or the K Bridge, I'd definitely go for the bridge! As has been mentioned, it's the original site of the commercial bungy, and you can take Secrets of Bungy tour to learn a little more about it - they show you a bit of bungy history, how they make the bungy ropes and all that jazz... well interesting!

But really... the Nevis has to be the most amazing jump - I only did it last week and can't wait to jump it again!

I know what you mean about bungy-ing being scarier than sky diving, I'm with you on that one! I think the scariest for me is the prospect on the canyon swing, which is on the agenda this week, ah!!
