It takes a certain kind of person to jump from an aircraft at 15,000ft into thin air. It takes courage.
Expect sensory overload as your mind, body and soul fight against every natural self-preserving urge. The challenge is immense. Harnessed by space age materials to an experienced qualified jumpmaster, you step out of that aircraft door and for some 60 seconds you plummet toward the ground at 200 kph - terminal velocity!

Your Queenstown skydiving experience starts at the meeting point located right in the heart of Queenstown, at 35 Shotover Street. This is your check-in point, where, following registration and a video briefing in the innovative cinema room, you can select your photo and video options. You will be transported to the drop zone just 20 minutes away on a private airstrip set amid a rural farmland background. In the viewing area, you will be able to see other skydivers both in the sky and coming in to land. Your flight to altitude will take you high above the Wakatipu basin, where you will have a bird's eye view of our dramatic mountains and lakes. Jumping directly above our drop zone you will experience free-fall of up to 60 seconds before your Tandem Master deploys the parachute and together you glide back to earth. The canopy ride takes approximately 5 minutes.
You have the options of 3 heights to jump from, the higher you go the longer the excitement of free-fall.
15,000ft : 60 sec free-fall
12,000ft : 45 sec free-fall
9,000ft : 30 sec free-fall
