- The ultimate leap of faith with a huge ledge swing above Queenstown
- Swing out 400m above the adventure capital of New Zealand
For many people who visit New Zealand, the home of extreme sports, the one thing they’re looking to do is a bungee jump, and there’s nowhere better to try it than Queenstown, one of the most scenic, and up-for-it, places in the whole country. Strap in for this awesome ledge jump 400m (1312ft) above Queenstown, with the cord attached to your waist so if you’ve got the nerve, you can take a run-up and try and get a somersault going!
If you’ve never bungeed before, the experience is unreal. It takes massive reserves of courage even to fling yourself off the ledge, and then just when you think you’re going to fall forever, the cord tightens, and you’re swinging in the air. If you’d like to make this event just a little more special, why not try a night jump (seasonally-only), with the city all lit up. Might be a good idea to leave dinner till afterwards though!
