“Oh My God, What an experience!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

I will be definately coming back again after the trip we took to New Zealand.

My sister and I thought it would be a great idea to go Bungy jumping and my boyfriend did it through AJ Hackett so we did too!

The only downside was that my photo's didn't work the first time I jumped, but then to my amazement they offered me a free jump to get the awesome shots.
You can't go to a bungy jump and NOT have photos to provce it - right?
So I took a second leap, amazing <3 :)

My sister got up there and was so terrified she was crying, the guy up there was coaxing her through it, giving her support and motivation to do it. Eventually she did :) and she loved it.
Probably will never do it again, but she loved it.
Everyone cheered as she finally jumped.

Fantastic experience, you should definately NOT miss this!

“Don't just stop to watch- you'll get sucked in!”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

We happened to stumble upon this place while we were out for a drive to see the countryside. Big sign on the side of the road indicating a point of interest, plus bungy jumping (the first commercial bungy site)…we had to check it out. Upon pulling in the parking lot you see a very non descript building, walk in and follow it down a ramp into a heart thumping pulse pounding techno show. Bass thumping, big screen showing amazing leaps and then finding yourself outside at the viewing points, one after one people take the plunge. My husband got completely sucked in and within minutes he was leaping off the bridge. The whole operation ran like clock work and there was no time to stand around worrying. From the time he signed up to the time he came back it must have been under 20 minutes. Here’s a tip, if you don’t want to plunge into the water at the end of your leap, just ask.

“Bungi - Great way to start your day”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Kawarau Bungy is the original Queenstown bungy operation and has developed into a fantastic destination for every Queenstown visitor. Even if you do not want to jump you can spend a couple hours watching other people go thru the experience - which for many is just as much fun. I did it and loved it!

“Must see Original home of the bungy!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

On our trip back from Wanaka had to stop off and see the iconic bridge and first home of the bungy. The entrance to the place is fantastic, you spiral down to the ground level which was an adventure in its self. The set out with the massive screens inside is fantastic. You can watch the jumpers from the comfort of seating inside. The day we went it was raining so it was great being able to see what was happening without having to get wet! It was still in the construction stage but will be a fantastic place once its finished! Also the views from the bridge and surrounding area are spectacular.
