Everything about this company was perfect. Picked up in Queenstown and taken on the 40 minute dive to Glenorchy with our driver Ash who was super informative.. We stopped off at the Million Dollar View and took some snaps of the best geography in the South Island. The Paradise Dropzone is situated between some of the most dramatic mountain ranges... More

We had our first 15000 feet skydive and it was an indescribable experience ! The reason we chose skydive paradise was for the skydive location at Glenorchy overseeing the snowy mountain, Isengard in the Lord of The Rings, Lake Wakatipu and Queenstown. It was an amazing view for skydiving ! The price was also reasonable as compared to other skydive... More

My younger son has begged for years to skydive. His older brother was willing to do it with him, so I chauffeured. The drive up is gorgeous. The scenery of the airstrip is magnificent. I thought the crew was professional, they got the kids hyped, all set up, and in the plane. They both loved it. Said after skydiving there,... More

SkydiveParadise, Guest Relations Manager at Skydive Paradise, responded to this review

Thank you Alyson! the feeling of skydiving, literally, on top of a lake is amazing! other drop zones have lakes and even the beach next to them, but we're the lucky ones to give that experience, somehow it helps you to relax faster when you see water under than when you jump above land. Come back! we'll be here :) More
