What You Can Expect

The Original Kawarau Bridge Bungy Jump in Queenstown

Original Kawarau Bridge Bungy Jump

Bungy jumping Queenstown is a thrilling experience, not to be passed up in the adventure capital of the world. Adrenaline junkies meet at the bungy center for a safety briefing before their Kawarau bungy jump from the Kawarau Gorge Suspension Bridge where it all began.

Suit up in a specialized harness that is safely attached to the launch site. More than one million commercial jumps have been performed here, and expert guides conform to rigorous safety procedures while ensuring your comfort — no matter your size or ability.

When you’re ready to take the plunge, jump or dive from the bridge platform overlooking the glacier-fed Kawarau River. You’ll descend 141 feet in five seconds. At the world's best-loved bungy site, you can select from a number of options: topple over backward, forward, spin, somersault or even jump with another person. You can also choose to bob above the water, touch it or be fully immersed. 

Afterward, you’ll receive a complimentary bungy t-shirt for bragging rights. Photos and videos of your bungy jump are available for purchase. Not feeling brave enough to take the plunge? Join the excitement as a spectator and watch your friends bungy from the Kawarau Bridge.

Awesome experience. Well organized. The pictures and videos are excellent and ended up buying both. I would definitely recommend this tour!

A MUST DO!!! I am a 45 year old mother with a 25 year old daughter. I previously went skydiving at the age of 30 and thought my daredevil days were over. Since this was the first ever bungy jump, it was not negotiable as far as my daughter was concerned. I regretfully agreed and am glad I did. We had the best time and would have jumped again, had time permitted. The staff was great and we have amazing photos and videos from our jumps. We had a hard time deciding whether to jump tandem or individually. We opted for individual jumps and are glad we did.

Scary/exhilarating. I'd do it again. 69 yrs old. Definitely worth doing if you are into that sort of thing, or want to face your fear.
