This one's not for the faint-hearted. Feel On Top Of The World with our EPIC 18,500 foot skydive!
If you want the ULTIMATE skydiving experience then this jump is for you! Our 18,500 ft skydive is the highest altitude in Taupo and a must-do if you want to skydive in New Zealand. From 18,500 ft (that's nearly 20,000 ft above sea level!) you'll get over 75 seconds of free fall!
Your skydive begins with a scenic plane ride where you’ll see incredible 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!
Once you’ve reached altitude, the doors will open, you’ll sit on the edge of the plane with your tandem master seated behind you. If it hasn’t already, the excitement will have well and truly kicked in by now! Get ready...it’s time to jump! As you plunge from the plane into the fresh air, you’ll experience the best adrenaline rush of your life! Reaching speeds of up to 200km per hour, the thrill of free fall is something you’ll never forget.
After an insane 75 seconds of free fall, you’ll then float back to earth with a relaxing parachute ride with your tandem master, arriving safe and soundly back at the drop zone.
Do something worth bragging about and skydive from the HIGHEST jump in Taupo. You'll feel #OnTopOfTheWorld
