was a bit apprehensive about the price ($215 each) but it ended up being totally worth it. It's not just the jump you pay for but the whole experience. The staff were fun and friendly and made the experience even better. Very good production, well...More

Staff are great, got a courtesy bus up to site and back again. All staff have a whacky sense of humour maybe you need to to throw people off from a great height. Would recommend, not for the faint hearted.

You are sure to pee in ur pants and laugh all at the same time when doing this! Must do. I haven't done bungy but those who have, say that this is better. Anyways i'm sure both are different and unique experiences in themselves.

The experience is exactly what it advertises. The staff are laid back, accommodating, and professional. They definitely enjoy messing with you when you're nervous and nearing the platform edge. It happens quickly - one second I was standing on the platform and the next I...More

Fantastic staff who know how to use just the right amount of comedy to put everyone at ease. Scary but awesome experience. Don't be afraid - just do it - totally worth every penny. The best 'thrill ride' I have done to date:) LOVED IT.

This is a fantastic experience. Staff are helpful, fun and safety conscious. We did a tandem jump and loved every second (even though stepping off the ledge was scary as). DVD price isn't too bad for this experience - $80 for movie, photos and a...More

Read title - lots of fantastic quirks and touches that make it an entire experience not just a 20 second thrill. We both work in tourism and were totally blown away with this awesome experience. A must do in NZ.

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!

Hi Jim We do allow you to bring you own Go Pro, which you can use on most jumpstyles (some jumpstyles you can't for your own safety), so long as it's securely fastened with a hands free mount. Chest, wrist and head mounts... More
