Such an amazing experience!! The staff working here are ridiculously fun and so professional. We jumped twice and it was one of the scariest and most exhilarating things I’ve ever done. A must if you’re in Queenstown!!

Hi there! Check-in is 15 minutes before the trip time, and you should allow 2.5 hours for the whole trip. So if you booked the 4.30pm trip; check in will be 4.15pm and you would be back in town around 7pm. Hope this helps!
