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.
Marvel at the beauty and sheer size of Lake Taupo as you take the ultimate leap of faith out of an aeroplane from 9,000ft high. Strapped to your qualified instructor, you'll reach speeds of up to 200km/h as you freefall for 30 seconds before peacefully floating back down to earth.
Experience the ultimate thrill and leave with a memory that will last a lifetime as you jump out of a plane! After a safety briefing and gear up, you will board the plane for a scenic flight to head up to an altitude of 9,000ft. As you reach closer to altitude, revel in the spectacular views of the crystal blue waters of Lake Taupo, the biggest lake in the Southern Hemisphere. Once you have reached 9,000ft, the doors will open and you'll sit on the edge of the plane with your instructor behind. Together, take the ultimate leap of faith and exit the plane, freefalling at speeds of up to 200km/h for 30 seconds. Once the parachute opens, enjoy the serenity as you float back down to earth taking in the wondrous sites below including Mt Doom from Lord of The Rings, as well as the magnificent Tongariro National Park. You will be directed to the drop zone where your family and friends are eagerly waiting.
