I'd never bungy jumped before and after having a look down form the platform I still wasn't sure about it. I walked in to ask the staff how the bungy process and pulley system works to the guys casual saying "Well you'll sign a couple forms, pay, weigh you strap, you up and then your good to jump :-D Here's...

If you have been bungy jumping before, I would suggest skipping this. It isnt set up very well. The whole experience felt very rushed. After you jump, you have a hike and a half to get back to the top which will take you about 15 minutes and then you are done. I was expecting a little more of a... More

Hi there, Thanks for your feedback regarding your experience at Taupo Bungy. I am sorry you felt 'rushed' and am uncertain why this was the case. In the past we have had many compliments about the time our staff spends with our customers, for which we are very proud. Generally, we try to get jumper's out to the platform as... More

By far one of the most disappointing attractions that I had visited as I had high expectations for the Bungy jump. Was welcomed by staff who weren't exactly welcoming or polite. They appeared to be treating the clients before me pretty rudely. One thing to note is that you cannot bring your gopro when jumping, regardless of mount. Couldn't find... More

Hi Xunliang_Lin, Thanks for taking the time to review your Taupo Bungy experience on TripAdvisor. It is unfortunate you had such a disappointing experience with us. I would like to clarify a couple of points you made. We cannot allow people to use their own GoPro's as we have extensive safety practices in place, which includes no unregistered equipment to...

However, I wish I could say the same regarding the order of our video! I ordered the GOPRO video,... More

I didn't go on because I am just too scared but we were in Taupo for the weekend and I got a tandem swing experience from grab one for my husband and my teenage daughter. They loved it. Everything appeared to be really geared towards safety. Harnesses were checked twice by two separate members of the crew. The crew were... More

I had done a canyon swing on the south island so decided to bungy on the north. I did a tandem with my sister. Her 12 year old also did a solo. Even though she had tried to talk him out of it he was determined. When we go to the platform, The said 12 yo jacked up. (Which was... More

Bungy Jumping can now be ticked off the list because of the fantastic team at Taupo Bungy. I booked on for a tandem swing and solo bungy. My nerves were shattered prior to walking in, however with their fun and friendly attitude, I was able to calm down before making the plunge. I felt very safe and secure with their... More

I've always wanted to try bungy jumping, and where better than the home of the bungy...New Zealand! It was a fantastic experience, the staff were helpful, professional & gave good advice....when they say 3,2,1 don't think, just bungy! I felt secure the entire time and oh what a view on the way down and up and down and.......

Did this in May 2013, but the date doesn't go that far back. Never in my life did I ever have any interest in bungy jumping. However, on a trip with Tourism New Zealand and Air New Zealand Vacations, Taupo Bungy was one of our stops. This was included in our trip so we could either opt to do it... More

Taupo Bungy is by all means the best place to do your first jump or swing. Some of the benefits: The setting is beautiful: above the Waikato River with exotic birds (I don't mean bungy jumpers!) flying around. The site is small and cozy. Compared to Queenstown much more personal or less reared/artificial. The nice people of the office crew... More
