This was my favourite Queenstown attraction. You head over in a minibus, allowing you to meet and get to know your fellow jumpers. What's really cool about this experience is the amount of time the staff spend on you - it's truly personal, and doesn't...More

Outstanding! A real blast. The event was exciting (our first time with anything like this; we’re seniors, mid-late 60-‘s, by the way), fun and scary but not terrifying. The guys are outstanding – funny, comforting, reassuring, not above tweaking up your adrenaline if they thought...More

Hi there! Check-in is 15 minutes before the trip time, and you should allow 2.5 hours for the whole trip. So if you booked the 4.30pm trip; check in will be 4.15pm and you would be back in town around 7pm. Hope this helps!
