What To Expect On The 16,500 ft Skydive Experience
Your adventure will begin as soon as the plane takes off. Trust us, climbing up to 16,500 ft soaking in the magnificent views of Lake Taupo and Mount Ruapehu is an experience in itself. But it gets better - if the weather allows and the skies are clear, you’ll be able to see from coast-to-coast of the Central North Island - all the way from Mount Maunganui to Taranaki! You can even see views from Lord of The Rings!
After reaching the altitude, the moment of truth will just be a few seconds away. As the plane doors open, a realisation will kick in - you are 16,500 ft from the ground. But this isn’t the time to think; it’s time to jump!
You’ll free fall for 70 seconds, soaring through the clear blue NZ skies at speeds reaching up to 200 km per hour. This is when you’ll experience the ultimate adrenaline rush. The thrill of skydiving in Taupo is something you’ll never forget.
Your tandem master will deploy the parachute, and to contrast that adrenaline you will get a nice, relaxing experience back to the ground. During your parachute ride, you’ll get the most spectacular views of Lake Taupo before you make it to the drop zone.
