Full description
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 your experienced Jumpmaster, step out of that aircraft door and for 60-seconds plummet toward the ground at 200 kph - terminal velocity. Admire some of the most dramatic scenery in New Zealand from 15,000ft above the Remarkables Mountain Range. After a 15-minute scenic flight to altitude, you will nudge towards the edge of the plane before being thrown out. Keep your head up, smile at your skydive photographer and take in the stunning surroundings. After an exhilarating freefall, you will experience a 5-minute parachute ride, floating safely back down to the skydive drop zone. At the drop zone base, make use of the internet kiosks and Discovery Zone where you can watch the parachutes being packed. There are drinks and snacks available for purchase, bathrooms, a souvenir clothing and gifts store, as well as free Wi-Fi. There are also lockers onsite to store your valuables while skydiving.

Great Day with perfect weather. Even if skydiving in Queenstown is the most expensive skydive in NZ, it was definitely worth it. The view is amazing. A lot of Chinese customer, but everybody was friendly. Unfortunately you are not allowed to take your own cameras with you. (I was allowed to that in the USA) Pricing for photos are too expensive. I would recommend the skydive to everybody who’s short on time. If not, go skydiving in Abel Tasman or Franz Josef, where you have a great view too and better prices.
