Hello.

Me and my boyfriend are going travelling for 12 months in June. Next February we will be in NZ I will be doing a skydive in Queenstown and he's wanting to do a good/big bunjee jump.

Where is the best place to do this? do you know the prices?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you
Terrie

I plan to the 'Thrillogy', consisting of 'The Ledge', Kawarau Bridge and The Nevis, which all offer something different. Kawarau Bridge isn't particularly high (around 40 metres if memory serves) but is the oldest commercial bungee jumping in the world, so will be cool (and pretty awesome scenery). The Nevis looks the most terrifying in my opinion. A cable car takes you out over the Nevis River, about 140 metres high, then you just leap out.
The Ledge is different because you're strapped in by the waist rather than ankles, allowing you to do a run up and some sort of action (Superman, karate kick etc.) should you wish. It's somewhere in the region of £230-240 for the three, I think they're about £100-120 if you buy them individually.

Kawarau Bridge in Queentown is a pretty place to do it; it costs $180. I did a bungy off the Auckland harbour bridge which costs $150.
