Skydive Taupo is located at Taupo Airport, which is a short 7-minute journey from the centre of Taupo.  Your adventure will begin once you arrive at the dropzone, where you’ll meet our friendly office staff who are going to talk you through everything that awaits you. 

  • Briefing - our friendly team will get you signed up, explain all the options to you and give you a safety briefing

  • Gear up - our team will get you sorted with a jumpsuit and harness, hat, goggles and gloves (in winter).  Your tandem instructor will introduce himself, get your harness sorted and go through some safety information with you

  • Boarding call you board our unique pink plane, the flight will take about 20 minutes to get to altitude so you have plenty of time to take in the amazing scenery
  •  3...2...1...JUMP!! - the door will open and you'll feel that rush of air! Your instructor will slide you to the door until your feet are dangling over the edge - 3...2...1...
  • Freefalling - the adrenaline kicks in as you fall at 200km/h!  You don't feel like you're falling - it's more like you are floating on a big cushion of air

  • Parachute ride - at 5,000ft your instructor will open up the parachute and you will have a gentle 5 minute ride back down to earth.  This is a great time to take in the views - you may even get the chance to control the parachute yourself!
  • Landing - landing is smooth and easy, your instructor will tell you when to lift your legs to allow for a slow and gentle landing - congratulations, you've just completed a skydive!
  • Movie time - we have a cinema in the hangar so if you've opted for one of our photo and video packages, you can watch your personalised video with your friends and family
