Love the excitement when I fall. He didn't really push me. I jump on my own. The video was quick but do double check for your video when you get to the hostel as my friend's video got mixed up with someone else's. But they were kind enough to bring the correct video to our hostel (rainbow lodge) on the... More

We did a tandem bungy as we were too petrified of going alone! The staff were fantastic, making jokes, giving us tips and overall creating a great atmosphere. we had to wait 20min to jump which added to the nervousness of it all. on the jump platform we didnt realise they were filming so the video is pretty hilarious, it...

Loved this, we did the tandem canyon swing. Lots of fun and can be done in the rain too so you don't have to worry about the weather.

I bungee jumped for the first time today from Taupo Bungy and had a great time. What an experience! A beautiful view and obviously a lot of fun and fear all mixed together. The staff were friendly both at the top and bottom of the jump. There was no one behind me but it still went quickly, the jump instructor... More

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...

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
