Even better than expected!

Upgrading from 12,000 to 15,000 feet was definitely worth it. The scenery was beautiful and the jump was exhilarating. Book this - and bring me!

Why do people jump out of planes? 😀

After the first seconds outdide the plane, that just don't make any sence to body and brain, when you realize and see, that your just falling now,it was beautiful. The landscape, the view. And a funny and trustworth professional in your back. 😊

Unvergessliches Erlebnis, danke an das Team

Ich habe schon als Kind vom Fallschirmspringen in Neuseeland geträumt. Jetzt kann ich sagen "Yes, I did it". Es war absolut unglaublich. Ian Tomkinson, der beste Tandemmaster den man sich wünschen kann, war absolut cool und professionell. Ich habe mich bei ihm super gut aufgehoben gefühlt. Thanks a lot for this amazing experience. Auch großen Dank an das super Team, insbesondere an Silvia für ihre Insidertipps rund um Lake Taupo. Wenn ich mal wieder springen sollte, dann bei euch :-)
