Second highest bungee jump New Zealand

Bungy Jump in Queenstown, New Zealand

bungy-jump-new-zealand-aj-hackettIt was once the highest Bungy Jump in the world! It may have lost it’s title to China, but the AJ Hacket, Nevis Bungy Jump in Queenstown is no less thrilling!

At 134 meters, this is a monster of a Jump.

Getting there is part of the thrill. The 40 minute drive from Queenstown takes you to a steep and winding access road. Once you reach the turn off, the journey goes up a private mountain access road. One wrong turn and you will plunge off the edge. (Something to get your nerves ready for the big jump) To make the jump more terrifying, you have to take a cable car out to the centre of the gorge where you jump from another cable car dangling high above the river below.

Check out:

Your guide will clip you into the tiny moving box as you make your way out to the jumping platform. When you arrive, the music pumps loudly as you walk over the transparent floor showing the valley below. To add to the terror, they prop you up on a see through shelf. You sit on a bench staring into the abyss below while they strap your legs and joke and laugh with you.

nevis-bungy-queenstown-new-zealandIs this your first time trying a bungy? Ah you’ll love it, they say. But all you can think is “What the hell am I doing up here?

Your time has come and they have you cross the line to the “non-safe zone” where you are plopped into a barber’s chair. Your mind can’t focus on anything as they strap your legs to the bungy. But you have to concentrate because you need to know what to do once the jump is over.

You said What? I have to pull the rip cord on the second bounce? I doubt reaching up to pull a cord off my legs as I flail through the air will be the first thing on my mind. Oh well, I’ll give it a shot.

nevis-bungy in queenstown new zealandThe Flying Kiwi was kind enough to book the Nevis Bungy and the Swing. Our Flying Kiwi travels through New Zealand have been one thrill ride after another and the jump from the Nevis will be difficult to top. For adrenaline junkies and adventure seekers this is a must do for anyone stopping in Queenstown on the South Island.

New Zealand is definitely living up to it’s reputation as the adrenaline capital of the world.

There is no explaining what it’s like to jump so we will let the video speak for itself.

I highly recommend buying the video and photos from AJ Hackett, they are very pricey, but for this once in a lifetime opportunity it is worth the $130 New Zealand Dollars. (approx. $100 Canadian dollars for video and photos of both Bungy and Swing provided on a USB card. Bungy only on a disk is cheaper prints are even cheaper.

Bungy Jump Details

  • The cost to jump is $260 New Zealand Dollars.
  • You can book the Swing and the Jump (which I did-swing video to come soon) for $395 New Zealand Dollars. ($280 Canadian Dollars approx)
  • 1 NZD = .70 US and CAD Dollar
  • 1 NZD = .50 British Pounds
  • The prices are steep, but Ajay Hackett has an impecable safety record. They spend money to keep equipment updated and beyond safety standards and the cost of leasing an entire canyon must be astronomical. We at first thought it was a cash grab until talking to several locals about it.

Where is the best place to go bungee jumping in New Zealand? | Yahoo Answers

There are so many, but the North Island's highest bungy jump is at Mokai Gravity Canyon, which is pretty cool.
You can also go at Queenstown or do a jump from the Sky Tower in Auckland, but I'd say go the canyon!
