What you can expect

COVID-19 UPDATE - Please note that this activity is closed as of 24 March 2020 until further notice. We expect this to be for a minimum of four weeks.

Get in touch with your inner daredevil and Bungy jump from the historic Kawarau Bridge, just outside of Queenstown. This is a true test of nerve for anyone who really wants to push the boundaries, launch from a platform, and fall toward the river below.

In 1988, forward-thinking adrenaline junkies AJ Hackett and Henry van Asch announced their daredevil natures globally by opening the first commercially operated bungee jumping site. Now is your chance to try the bungy experience at the same site, historic Kawarau Bridge.

You can decide to jump solo or tandem—this is the only outfit in Queenstown to offer tandem jumps. Position yourself on the 141-foot (43-m) bridge and wait for launch time. Take a deep breath, make the final checks, and bungy. As you accelerate toward the river, feel an extreme surge of adrenaline. If you decide to go for the water-touch option, plunge into the water before springing back up toward the bridge.

REMEMBER WHEN YOU THOUGHT YOU COULDN'T DO IT. WHEN YOU WERE TOO NERVOUS, TOO TIMID, TOO SCARED. THIS WAS NOT FOR YOU. YOU WANTED TO BACK OUT. BUT YOU DIDN'T. YOU TOOK A DEEP BREATH AND STEPPED FORWARD. BECAUSE IF YOU CAN DO THIS, YOU CAN DO ANYTHING.

LIVE MORE. FEAR LESS
