The Skydive Experience
Your skydive begins with a scenic plane ride up to 12,000ft. You’ll begin to get incredible views of Lake Taupo, Mount Ruapehu and Mount Ngauruhoe – also known as Mount Doom from Lord of the Rings.
Once you’ve reached altitude, the doors will open, you’ll sit on the edge of the plane with your tandem master seated behind you. If it hasn’t already, the excitement will have well and truly kicked in by now! Get ready...it’s time to jump! As you plunge from the plane into the fresh air, you’ll experience the best adrenaline rush of your life! Reaching speeds of up to 200km per hour, the thrill of freefall is something you’ll never forget.
After an insane 45 seconds of freefall, you’ll then float back to earth with a relaxing parachute ride with your
tandem master, arriving safe and soundly back at the drop zone.
You’ll be buzzing long after your feet touch the ground.
Feeling like you could test your courage even more? Check out our 15,000 ft skydive with 60 seconds in freefall!
