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.
