WHAT TO EXPECT
Experience your very own natural high. Jump from 9,000ft, 12,000ft or 15,000ft above the most breath-taking scenery in New Zealand! Freefall at a speed of 200km/h and take in panoramic views of Mt Aspiring and Fiordland National Parks, situated in the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Area.
Glenorchy, known as the “the Gateway to Paradise”, is the impressive backdrop for Sir Peter Jacksons’ films The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. So if you're a fan of the movies, keep your eyes peeled (if you can) for Frodo or Bilbo while whizzing past beautiful Glenorchy aka Middle Earth landmarks!
Sit back and relax as you take the scenic drive along Lake Wakatipu to the Glenorchy drop zone. Meet the friendly crew as they take you through those all important safety procedures and feel your excitement kick in as you prepare yourself for one of the most epic skydives in New Zealand!
Our maximum weight is 115kg/253lbs. All persons over 95kg are subject to Tandem Master assessment at the drop zone.

The minimum weight is 30kg/66lbs and all passengers must be big enough to fit safely into the harness.
