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!

NZ Skydive Centre, 35 Shotover Street, Queenstown. 

 

15 minutes prior to trip time.

Our maximum weight is 115kg/253lbs. All persons over 95kg are subject to Tandem Master assessment at the drop zone. Persons 95kg -104.9kg will incur a weight surcharge of $50 and those 105kg-115kg a weight surcharge of $75.

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

The ability for a child to jump is determined by their age (over 5 years), weight, size and how the harness fits. 

Children under the age of 12 need to come out to the dropzone, meet the staff and be fitted in a harness before we can confirm that they can jump. Anyone who is under 18 years of age will need the written consent of a parent or guardian.

A need for adventure! You just need shoes that are secure and won’t fall off so no sandals or jandals. You’ll also need some warm layers of clothing depending on the season, especially in the colder months where we do recommend that multiple layers are more suitable than one large jacket.

No, this is due to safety reasons, but you can take photos on the ground while getting ready. There are options for photos and video to remember your experience.
