That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Feel #OnTopOfTheWorld as you conquer Taupo's highest skydive at a whopping 18,500ft! 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 18,500ft 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.
