Your day will begin with a pickup from your Rotorua accommodation in our van. Alternatively, you have the option to self-drive to the drop zone if you’d prefer, there will be plenty of parking.

Upon arrival, you will be asked to sign a waiver form before being taken through your options regarding altitude and cameras.

Once you've decided on your height and camera options it's time to get ready! You will be shown you through the hangar where you can store your belongings in our lockers before gear up.

It's gear up time! You will meet your tandem master and camera man, smile and wave for the camera and watch the safety video while we outfit you in a jumpsuit, harness, hat and goggles.

When you're all geared up it's time to enter the plane and take off. Your tandem master will point out the beautiful sights around the Lake Taupo region on your scenic flight up to altitude, which takes about 15-minutes.

The moment of truth has arrived - it's time for freefall! Your tandem master will move you towards the door. Stop and smile for a quick photo before exiting, then experience the amazing feeling of freefalling at 200kph above Lake Taupo! Enjoy 60 seconds from 15,000ft, and spot the coast to coast views and snowy volcanoes of Tongariro National Park!

At 5,000ft your tandem master will deploy the parachute and you float back to earth, enjoying more of the stunning views. You may even get to steer the parachute! Upon landing, you will take a post-freefall picture.

After the skydive we will de-gear you, then grab a glass of water while you laugh at your skydiving video in our cinema. Just before you leave you can check out the T-shirts and Hoodies on offer in the shop, then we'll give you a certificate before taking you back to your accommodation in Rotorua.
Skydive from 15,000ft above stunning Lake Taupo! Take in spectacular coast to coast views of the Tongariro National Park and the Central Plateau. With free return transport from your Rotorua accommodation, free USBs, and the most camera options in New Zealand, a skydive with us is unforgettable.
