This was literally the best thing I have ever done. Thanks to the team, you guys made it so easy and I enjoyed every minute. Special thanks to Olly, thanks for the hilarious tax chat :) So glad I bought the video, it was awesome. Brings me back to that moment when I watch it!

Easily the best thing I've done in Queenstown! The team at Skydive Paradise are fantastic - professional and fun, and gifted at putting any fears at bay. Would absolutely recommend this to everyone...I consider myself to be pretty unadventurous normally, and I LOVED it! The free fall is so much fun, I couldn't get the grin off my face. The... More

The lads out there, especially Jags and Olly, my jump master, were cracking jokes and friendly banter which settled any nerves I had. Olly recorded a great... More

I decided to do this on a bit of a whim. I'd been hang gliding and when I was waiting for others to finish, I noticed sky divers taking off and landing. Feeling brave, I was taken over to Skydive Paradise who said I could do it straight away. Before I knew it, Jags had me in a jumpsuit and... More

Such an unbelievable experience and so glad I did it with Paradise. Can't imagine better views anywhere in the world! The photos and videos are hilarious and great quality. Can't wait to... More

The staff were so funny and nice, really made you feel comfortable. The introduction was quick and efficient, not boring, not a lot of waiting around. The view itself was absolutely amazing. I was litterally speechless. Skydive Paradse is also very cheap compared to the other skydiving companies
