Activity overview:

While in Queenstown make sure to be part of an adrenaline-fuelled experience with one of the team at AJ Hackett Bungy. Leap off the Kawarau Bridge, the world home of bungy jumping, leap 134 metres towards the beauty that is the Nevis river, the highest bungy in Australasia, try New Zealand's largest swing located 160 metres above the river or the latest innovation the Kawarau Zipride travelling at up to 60km an hour and perfect for families, conference, friends and groups.

Not only is the Kawarau Bridge Bungy the site from which the bungy pioneers launched themselves in 1988 it is also offers Queenstown's only tandem bungy jump. Stand poised above the specatacular location that is the Kawarau River and jump 47 metres to the clear waters below, or get tied up with friend and be thrown off. An adventure for all from the extreme enthusiasts, the young in age, young at heart and a fun and unique interactive conference event venue.

Cruise 130 metres along the Kawarau River on the 'Zipride', three 130metre ziplines that allow for singles and tandems and for all ages and abilities. With four different styles to choose from, the 'Sightseer' where you travel forward in a comfortable position to the 'Upside Down' where you are flipped upside down and Zipride like a sloth.

The 'Ledge Bungy' situated 400 metres above Queenstown offers unparalleled views across Lake Wakatipu. With a specially designed harness you can choose a style of jump from the menu and flip or spin yourselves from the launch deck, or for a truly unique experience night jumps are a fantastic winter option.

The 'Ledge Swing' offers a thrilling environment to take in the Queenstown sights and will give you an adrenaline jolt you will never forget. A crazy exploit where you will be harnessed up and ready to fly lowered to the release position and then it's up to you. Have you the courage to pull the release cord?
