      Best thing I have ever done and highlight of our NZ trip!! :)
      If you are thinking about skydiving with Nzone, just do it and you will 100% not regret it!! Everyone in the team are so friendly and make you feel at ease. It all felt super safe and they made sure to triple check everything for peace of mind. The views from the plane are amazing and jumping from the plane is the most incredible feeling! Shoutout to my tandem master Will for making the whole experience so much fun and providing plenty of laughs!! We have already recommended it to all our friends and will definitely be back :)

      This was one of the best experiences of my trip to NZ! If you are hesitating … just go for it, you won’t regret it! I jumped with Conor who was super friendly and relaxed and put me at ease. The scenery is incredible. Well worth getting the video and photo package to capture these incredible memories!

      Amazing views and lovely staff
      My partner and I both had never been skydiving and we can HIGHLY recommend going at Nzone in Queenstown! The team - from sales staff to tandem masters and everyone in between - were all really friendly, encouraging and accommodating. It was a quick & transparent booking process and they had free slots on the same day, so we decided to go as a spontaneous decision. And then the jump: it was breathtaking! Literally! The views were insane, among some of the most beautiful I've ever seen. I jumped with Chris, who was super kind and patient despite me being a nervous wreck. My partner jumped with tandem master Tim and he was fun, easy-going and made the experience awesome as well.

      One hell of a natural high! DO IT!
      DO IT! You won't regret it and you will be smiling for days after. Fab and professional team, stunning views and a total rush! The quiz on the bus stops you freaking out if you are that way inclined as it keeps your mind busy. I guess that's the point. LOVED every second of it. You WILL have a crush on your instructor due to the adrenaline high!

      They're right! Embrace the fear!
      What an amazing group of people! My son and I were first timers, so adrenaline, nerves and anxiety were all present. (Mainly from me) But to the credit of the NZONE team our experience was awesome! Right from the start, everyone put us at ease. The professional manner and relatableness of the team really helped. Right from the booking to the actually jump. Everyone was so accommodating! Special shout out to Jose and Ruben who were our tandem team. If anything I have written resonates with you, then NZONE should be your chosen skydiving team.

      SPECTACULAR, no other words needed
      From start to finish professionalism all the way. Greeted with smiles booked in so efficiently. The way you are addressed, disperses of any nerves. Safety procedures, spoken, written and then you view. It’s crystal clear what to expect and that’s when you become EXCITED. We were taken on a short 20 minute drive out of town, to the skydiving 🪂 facility. We went as a family were all dressed introduced to our tandem Sky diver who was totally AWESOME 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾. Take off was smooth and I felt like a bird so free so motionless it was stunning. As we edge forward getting ready to jump a last re assuring pat from my instructor. Free fall there is nothing else to compare, gliding through the skies like a hawk was just out of this world. Seeing land from a true Birds Eye view was just BREATHTAKING. I was in Zen mode, true peace, joy and harmonious with sheer happiness. This memory will last a lifetime, well until I jump again. If I can do it YOU can. I highly recommend x infinity.

      Amazing! First skydive, and Nzone queensland was definitely the right place and company. If you have never tandem dived and are in the area, don't miss it. Angus and all the skydivers were great and everyone had a blast. The scenery was incredible

    I did the 15000ft skydive experience. The customer service here is incredible!! I had weather issues that forced me to rearrange a few of my plans. They were extremely accommodating and I was lucky to get on a jump the next day. I was with Jamie, Jambo? who was awesome! all of their staff make you feel comfortable and explain everything well! I felt so taken care of! the equipment was great! After my experience I had photo/video issues. They were extremely responsive when I emailed them and they remedied the situation immediately. They had a new flash-drive made and sent up to the main office in Queenstown; they really went above and beyond!

    I recently completed my first ever skydive for my 40th Birthday in October 2023. My friend who was with me it was her third. We jumped from 15,000 feet.

    I do have to say though my experience dealing with the staff (not at the jump area) but in the office in Queenstown was pretty negative. They weren't very friendly, some barely spoke english, and they weren't exactly "excitement inducing" when you're about to do something life changing. I think there needs to be a major attitude adjustment of staff in the Queenstown office, because you're spending a lot of money for this activity and the customer service levels were pretty average. Some barely cracked a smile.

    That being said, the bus driver to the jump zone - awesome! Also when you arrive at the jump zone, the staff I encountered, were not only friendly and fun, they showed excitement as well and were professional and very safety conscious. My experience changed the minute we got to the jump zone and I felt ready and valued that I was paying for this experience.

    Now I know this activity is weather dependent, I get that. The day of our jump it was sunny, but very windy and we were lucky to get our jump in as the group after us didn't get to jump, but I had no idea how turbulent it would be and how much spinning there would be once the parachute opened. I vomited in the air which was mortifying and nearly passed out on landing. I think some warning prior to jumping would be a good idea, I literally had no idea what to expect.

    My tandem master Damien was an absolute legend. He was fantastic. So professional, calming and made me feel at ease even though I was petrified and crying in the plane. I really appreciated how he looked after me and got me safely to the ground and being so kind when I was unwell. He was explaining everything in the plane to me when he was doing all the safety checks and kept talking to me and it was great. He is fantastic.

    They are incredibly safety focus and the training and preparing you is very professionally done. Highly recommend paying the extra and getting the extra camera person to video your jump. My video is fantastic.

    While I was very scared, the minute I jumped out of the plane I felt at peace. I had done it and the freefall was the most fun I've had in my life. While I was unwell when the parachute opened and the spinning happened, that aside, I did enjoy my experience, glad I did it, but I would never skydive again. Once is enough :)

    NZone skydive is an awesome company. Their drop site is in the most beautiful location and their team is professional and takes safety seriously which made us feel so much better! The pricing for photos/ videos was extreme and the quality of the pics aren't great, but the overall experience was amazing. Would definitely recommend if you're in Queenstown!

    Absolutely amazing experience. Skydiving has been sitting on my bucket list since forever. And I got to do my first jump here with Nzone on the best weather ever. I went on winter and just right after the Polar Blast which left me in awe with absolute gorgeous view of Queenstown snow-capped mountain.

    At first I booked for 12000ft jump and got last minute upgrade for much cheaper cost as all skydiver in my flight jumped at higher altitude at 15000 ft. The day I jumped was quite hectic with many people waiting, so my trip got held back about 2 hours which quite frustrating tbh. The activity itself is very weather dependent so not gonna blame them but yeah I kinda lost the excitement when my turn coming. So yeah really need to spare your whole day for skydiving experience cause It could be quite unpredictable i would say. So that's was my first jump at 15000 ft with my tandem master, Steve who is a very professional at his job that keep me calm for the whole experience and help me landing safely.

    Also, I booked their ultimate package with handcam and external videographer who jumped with me. The final edits was a bit lacking if I was being really honest not what i expected with the price that I pay. But I did came back the next day and got the whole footage haha so I could edit myself. Definitely there is some improvement that could be done. But yeahh just get your media package cause you will forget those adrenaline moment and you got to keep it fresh in your memories anyway cause it was life changing 🔥😆

    My first skydive and it was amazing (I did the 12,000ft). Chris was an absolute legend and made me feel super safe. It takes real skill to make someone feel calm and relaxed just before jumping out of a plane and I can’t thank Chris and the rest of the team enough!

    Would highly recommend!

    It was a awesome and amazing skydive with NZone in Queenstown. It was a amazing experience with Nzone skydive to see beautiful Queenstown from top and will never forget that beauty. Lake Wakatipu, rivers and mountains are like painted pictures and will never get this view anywhere else. All staff were very friendly and they orgnaised everything very well. Thanks Sam for taking care me from taking off to landing and Thanks Kevin for your excellent support as well. This is really really worth and will do it again.

    My partner and I did the 12000 feet skydive with nzone. The experience was unforgettable and my tandem guide Luke deserves particular praise. I was terrified before the jump and as well as doing his job he managed to keep me (relatively) calm during the process.

    The one negative was the waiting around - we checked in at the shop at 2.30 and weren’t back in town until gone 7 due to waits / transfers etc. Leave a little more time than they suggest. If you’re on the fence about doing it then definitely do it!

    An experience to cherish forever- was on my bucket list for years and it was certainly worth the wait! Was scheduled for 8 AM but due to bad weather , got a slot at 11. The staff are prompt in sending messages 30 min before scheduled time to update you on weather conditions and delays . Extremely professional and the focus on safety was apparent . Sam , my Instructor , was cheerful , confident and competent . The views from the aircraft are awesome - saphire lakes, emerald fields and snow capped mountains . As one jumps, the beauty unfolds even better . I could appreciate the adrenaline rush, the beauty of the landscape etc safe in the knowledge that Sam was in charge . The link to the videos/ photos were sent within a couple of hours to remind you that you actually Did it !

    Unfortunately our trip got cancelled due to bad weather. Got a prompt refund. Staff was also great. Considering fickle NZ weather, suggest travellers to keep backup days for such activities. In case of cancellation, there are other activities to explore - head to any information centre and they will guide. We did the Kjet boat ride.

    Kia ora Anand! That's an excellent tip - we totally recommend booking on the earliest day possible in your trip, and leaving back up days available in case of bad weather. Skydiving is unfortunately perhaps the most weather dependent activity you can choose, however everyone agrees it's worth the wait! We hope you get to experience it one day! The knowledgeable staff at our Queenstown store can also help to make reservations for almost all other activities in town, and are happy to recommend theirs and other local favorites. Cheers for the review!

    First time sky diver and recovering nervous flier. This was one of the best things I have ever done in my life. It is nothing like you expect both physically and emotionally. The prep in the morning with the crew is exactly the vibe needed; comfortably confident, thorough but a bit of a laugh. As the plane took off I thought to myself what am doing?? But the plane ride was 10-15 mins of unbelievable scenery and any bit of tension/nerves can be easily laughed off with the wonderful tandem masters. The jump is nothing you can imagine, very brief disorientation followed by the most exhilarating sensation of freefall (there is no sensation of your stomach 'jumping'). You gain an overwhelming sense mid fall that you actually did this and the sense of accomplishment is surreal. I originally signed up 9,000ft but the girls at the desk in the morning convinced me to go up to 12,000ft. I would absolutely say the higher the better. The freefall is the thrill so go high!
