I have some bucket list items that I hope to check off during my time on this awesome world of ours. Skydiving is one thing that I’ve always thought would be cool to do. The thought terrified me a bit, but was equally exciting. Thanks to NZONE Skydive, I was able to check off my goal of skydiving in Queenstown, NZ!
If you’ve never been to Queenstown, add it to your list. It’s the most beautiful place that I have been to yet! I’m so happy that I chose this location for my skydiving experience — because of the amazing views. I decided to jump from 15,000 feet in the air with the help of NZONE Skydive. Their main headquarters are located in the heart of Queenstown. As part of your skydiving experience, they transport you to and from the drop zone — so everything is super easy and stress-free.
You’ll start off by watching an introductory video which gets you pretty excited (and maybe a little nervous!). You will also have to sign paperwork and will they will verify your weight for safety purposes. Then, it’s time to hop in the van for a 20-minute drive to the drop site. Those 20 minutes were both exciting and terrifying for me – As you can imagine, I had many thoughts going through my head!
This was my first (but won’t be my last!) skydiving experience. My husband rode in the van with me to help ease my nerves. Once I got to the drop site, it was time to gear up for the skydive! I then got to meet my camera man and my tandem jumpmaster They were both great!
When you dive with NZONE, you have the option of purchasing photos and video packages. I highly recommend paying the extra fee for the extra photographer. With this option, another person will jump with you to capture your experience in photos and on video. I am so happy with the results and it’s something that I will always be able to look back on! Alternatively, you can have your tandem jumpmaster be equipped with an arm camera to capture the memory in a different way.
Riding in the plane was such an amazing experience. On one hand, I was so nervous!! Yet, I was also able to take in the amazing views around us. The mountains of Queenstown are absolutely breathtaking. I was surprised at how quickly we reached 15,000 feet!
I can’t even begin to experience the feeling of skydiving. It exceeding my expectations and I know that I will take the opportunity to do it again in the future. It truly was a bucket list item! If you want to feel an amazing rush all while looking at the beauty below you, I recommend skydiving in Queenstown, NZ with NZONE!
