The question here should be: “WHY NOT?”

From ground level, the view from Taupo township is already remarkable: a lake with crystal clear waters and powerful mountains in the background.                                   

Now think of a bird’s eye view of all that! That’s where we’ll take you: to have a look from above, flying with and without a plane above the biggest lake in New Zealand – which happens to be a crater of an extinct massive volcano.

From up above you’ll be able to see the most famous mountains in New Zealand – Mount Tongariro, Mount Ruapehu and Mount Ngaruhoe aka Mount Doom in the Lord Of The Rings’ films. On a clear day you might even be able to see both costs of the North Island and as far as Taranaki.

Our instructors are specialists on tandem jumps and will make you feel safe and entertained during your journey up on a 20-minute scenic flight, then on the incredible feeling of freedom while freefalling at 200km/h (125mph) from 12,000 feet (3,650m) or 15,000 feet (4,575m) above ground making a safe descend on a controlled canopy landing.

Another aspect that makes this experience even more exceptional is Pinky – our unique pink aircraft – that has Maori patterns and symbols all over its body keeping the legends, culture and beliefs of our people alive.

We have a great range of photos options and you can choose the soundtrack for your personal video. Plus, we can pick you up in town in our own exclusive limousine.

Well, if you’re still not convinced, we have great partners who can confirm jumping with us is awesome!
