This tandem skydive allows you to experience the unbelievable thrill of freefall! Attached to a professional, all you have to do is enjoy the ride and take in the views. From 12,000 feet you can enjoy views of Mount Ruapehu and the surrounding National Park.

Our skydive base is situated on the shores of Lake Taupo. On arrival we will go through everything with you and answer any questions you may have. Then… when we are ready for you we will get you harnessed up ready for your skydive. Your tandem instructor will give you a brief safety talk, as the main thing you need to remember is to have fun. Dont worry most of our customers have never skydived before, but most of them on landing, will do it again!!

Itinerary

  • Your experience begins as you arrive for your skydive. Our friendly ‘frontline’ team will show you examples of DVD’s and then sit down with you and explain all the options available with regards to heights, camera options and packages
  • Our staff will come and find you when its time to get ‘geared up’. They will give you a jump suit and harness, hat and goggles and gloves (in winter). Your Tandem Master will then come and introduce himself and tighten up your harness and give you a safety briefing.
  • If you have decided to get filmed your cameraman will come and introduce himself and get some footage of you on the ground. If you have decided on the Full or Mini Monty then your Tandem Master will also conduct your first interview.
  • You board the aircraft right out the front of the hangar. Our custom made PAC 750 XL will take approx 20 minutes to get to altitude, giving you plenty of time to take in the stunning scenery.
  • Get ready to say farewell to the plane. As the green light comes on the door gets opened and you feel that rush of air! You shimmy to the door until your feet are dangling over the edge. 3….2…..1… out you go!!!!!
  • Freefalling at over 200km/ph – this is the adrenalin rush you have been waiting for. You don’t feel like you’re falling – its just like being on a huge cushion of air. NO scarier to go higher as your brain cant comprehend how high you are!
  • Smile for the camera. If you decided to have your experience filmed then its time to interact with your cameraman. You can even hold his hands or feet if you like! If you opted for the full or mini monty packages then you will also get to see yourself close up and personal in your Instructors handycam which he wears strapped to his wrist
  • Your parachute opens at 5,000 feet! Taking in the magnificent views as your Tandem Instructor steers you gently back to earth
  • Landing is very gentle as you lift your legs up and glide safely back to terra firma!!! Give your Instructor a big hug (or shake is hand)!!! Congratulations!!!! You have just completed your skydive!!!!
  • Now its time to pay! Yep you may have forgotten, but we haven’t!!!! All our packages come with a FREE Tshirt so have a look at our designs whilst you try and figure out what has just happened.
* Now its time to relive your skydive! If you got yourself filmed you get to watch your DVD in our cinema room. Once you have watched it we burn it to disc for you so its ready for you when you leave!
