Already done a bungy jump? Prefer to stay upright? Mix things up with a friend while still getting the adrenalin pumping with this tandem cliffhanger swing in Taupo.
This exhilarating adrenaline rush adds another dimension to a traditional bungy jump. It offers those who are challenged by the idea of hanging upside down, a feet-first mind-blowing rush, and those who are all about 'extreme' another activity to tick off their bucket list.
Swing with a mate and choose from either a countdown or a surprise release. When the release cord is pulled the freefall kicks in immediately. Swing down towards the crystal clear waters below, then arc up to nearly 180° while reaching speeds of up to 70kph.
As the swinging slows, you can finally take in the scenic view of the Waikato River Valley as you enjoy the ride back to the platform.
Opening hours are 9.30am - 5.00pm (summer) and 9.30am - 4.00pm (winter).
Once this experience has been confirmed, changes are at the discretion of the experience provider and arranged directly with them according to their policy.
This experience is for two people swinging at the same time, together.
Spectators are welcome to watch and take photos (free of charge).
Prior to registration on the day, you will be asked if you have any medical conditions that may make your swing less safe or enjoyable. These include previous dislocations, asthma, pregnancy, back or head injury, and epilepsy. It is most likely you will still be able to swing, depending on the injury or condition, but staff must be informed. If you are concerned, please consult a medical professional.
This experience takes place in Taupo.
