Experience the thrill of a tandem skydive experience at New Zealand's drop zone - Taupo!
The Taupo drop zone is located at Taupo Airport, which is a short 7 minute drive from the centre of Taupo. As you plummet then float back to earth, you'll enjoy panoramic views overlooking the lake and the volcanic mountains of Tongariro National Park.
Tandem skydiving is the fastest, easiest and safest way for an inexperienced skydiver to enjoy skydiving at speeds of up to 200kph/120mph. The system includes a harness and parachute system for both the passenger and the instructor to share, so you can simply enjoy the thrill of the experience knowing your instructor has everything under control.
You can choose to descend from 12,000 feet, 15,000 feet or go all-out and choose the 18,500 feet option. You're in safe hands with all the latest, greatest and most state-of-the-art equipment as well as highly-qualified skydive masters.
