Full Description

Experience the ultimate thrill and leave with a memory that will last a lifetime as you jump out of a plane! After a safety briefing and gear up, you will board the plane for a scenic flight up to an altitude of 12,000ft. As you reach closer to altitude, revel in the spectacular views of the crystal blue waters of Lake Taupo, the biggest lake in the Southern Hemisphere. At 12,000ft, the doors will open and you'll sit on the edge of the plane with your instructor behind. Together, take the ultimate leap of faith and exit the plane, freefalling at speeds of up to 200km/h for 45 seconds. Once the parachute opens, enjoy the serenity as you float back down to earth taking in the wondrous sites below including Mt Doom from Lord of The Rings, as well as the magnificent Tongariro National Park. You will be directed to the drop zone where your family and friends are eagerly waiting.
