- Your chance to take a freestyle bungy
- Awesome jump above Queenstown where bungy began
The Queenstown Ledge jump is a legend in itself. This is a unique bungy jump, where the cord is not wrapped around your legs, but around your waist. What does that mean? It means that your legs are free, so you can take a running jump, and freestyle it on the way down. Twist, spin, spin or just go for a classic arms-outstretched leap, it’s entirely up to you. Only one thing is the same for everybody: that intense rush of adrenaline as your feet lose contact with the ground.
A.J. Hackett cornered the market in extreme thrills in New Zealand long ago, and Queenstown was his first base of operations. This is where commercial bungy jumping first began, and the Ledge is part of Hackett’s ‘Thrillogy’. You need to take a gondola ride up to the jump zone (not included in price) and from there you’ll be leaping out over Queenstown itself - try it at night when the city is lit up for an even bigger thrill, as you jump into the darkness!
