My boyfriend ended up proposing during our skydive, so of course it was amazing!!! Aside from the proposal though, the skydiving itself was one of the best experiences of my life. The view as you jump is unlike any other. I can't think of a more beautiful place you could skydive. In addition, the staff at NZONE were wonderful. Due to weather we had to reschedule our original jump. They went out of their way to accommodate us and were able to squeeze us in later in the day. They helped my boyfriend (now fiance) coordinate everything for the proposal, and even gave us the DVD of the proposal for free! If you're going to jump out of a plane, Queenstown is the place to do it!
It was great.The only thing I would suggest is that they tell people ahead of time to take a seasick pill that morning before the jump. It probably would have helped me with the turns after the chute was pulled. The whole group were very professional in all aspects. I am really glad I got the pictures and video.
I did it. Considering my being afraid of heights. I am 64 and
all my friends and co-workers thought I was nuts to do it.
All was organized so perfectly it was real fun. To those who
are not sure, there was no fear and you do not have to do
anything yourself. Super
instructor will be in control
This is one of the best things I have ever done. A must-do in Queenstown
This was one of the best things I've done in my entire life. I did the 15000 ft jump and was pretty proud of myself for having the guts to do it. NZone was very professional and made me feel safe the whole time. I was not afraid at all. Take the photos and dvd package as well even though it's expensive. It is totally worth it. I loved the view and being able to see it from above 360 degrees was mind-blowing. Like they say, "Achievement doesn't come sweeter". Best thing to do in Queenstown!
WOW!!! I only jumped from 9000ft but I would definitely use these guys again when I go for one of the higher jumps. Great service.
Best place to be sky diving. Staff were friendly especially the Tandem Instructor and the camera man. Myself and my wife had one of our best days there. Highly recommend this to anyone looking forward to skydiving for the first time.
Adreneline junkies look no further. A 45 sec freefall from 12000 feet is exhilarating. You will reach terminal velocity at about 200 km per hour. Difficult to describe, but have you ever wondered what it would feel like to fly When the parachute pops, savour the magnificient views that Queenstown has to offer.
My trip was cancelled 6 times due to weather conditions before I was actually able to jump. I completely understand that safety is an issue and, of course I would much rather wait for a sunny, wind free day, than be dead. However, There was no effort on the part of the tour company to inform me of this cancellation. I ended up wasting quite a bit of time waiting around for my jump to be cancelled.
Other than this, everything was great! I felt safe while doing the jump and the scenery was stunning. I even enjoyed myself hanging out at the drop zone watching other skydivers landing.
The highlight of the tour really...! Just ensure that your jumpmaster is a well experienced guy. My wife was luckier than me in that respect. Must do activity while in NZ!
