Feel #OnTopOfTheWorld as you conquer Taupo's highest skydive at a whopping 16,500ft! Take the leap at the same altitude as Mount Everest Base Camp and experience the insanity of 75 seconds of free fall. On your parachute ride back down to earth, enjoy sweeping views of Lake Taupo and Mount Ruapehu.
This experience begins with a 20 minute scenic flight to 16,500ft where you’ll enjoy beautiful views of Lake Taupo, Mount Ruapehu and on a clear sunny day, you’ll be able to see from coast-to-coast of the Central North Island - all the way from Mount Maunganui to Taranaki! You'll even get a glimpse of Mount Doom from Lord of The Rings.
Once you’ve reached altitude, the doors will open and you’ll sit on the edge of the plane with your tandem master seated behind you. Take a deep breath...it’s time to jump! Plunging from the plane, experience the exhilaration of 75 seconds of free fall as you reach speeds of up to 200km/ph. Feel the buzz as you float back down to earth with a serene parachute ride, landing safely at the drop zone.

RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
