My partner met Ricky & Herb at The Filter Room, Meeanee. They have made such a lasting impression, we will be organising another family getaway in Taupo just so Rick can go Skydiving with them! Awesome people - well worth a visit!!

First time and I loved it! My partner jumped with Ricky and she liked it very much! I jumped with Rhys and again it was amazing! The weather was stunning, cold though, but a clear blue sky! Definately a must for everyone that visits New Zealand! Skydive Taupo, you rock!

Came here with my partner for his birthday, weather was beautiful one day of the week that we were in Taupo (considering it was pretty much winter), the view was amaaaazing, staff we're awesome and this was undoubtedly the best week of my life.

Winter is certainly a beautiful time of year to jump (if not a little chilly!) We believe it is definitely worth braving the cold to experience the spectacular views you described. Thanks for jumping with us and your review. More

This was my second skydive and it was just as incredible as the first one. Thanks to the guys at Skydive Taupo! Huge plus for the fact that you can choose the songs you want for the video, makes it more personal! I'll definitely be back one day for another jump :)

The above question was asked by one of my friends on the eve of my first skydive experience, and I still don't know the answer to it! But that was GRRRRRRRRRRRRREAT!!!! And now I just cannot decide what I liked more - aerobatics flight or skydive:-)

I think most people ask them selves this question before they jump and we think the only way to answer it is to do it! We're stoked you enjoyed it, thanks for jumping with Skydive Taupo :) More

Hi and thanks for the review. We get very practised at helping calm those pre jump nerves! It is such a great feeling when you can over come the fear and jump, as we say 'fear is temporary, achievement is permanent'! It was lovely to have you jump with us, maybe we will see you back one day. More
