Want to get the heart racing and the pulse pumping? Looking for high octane things to do in Queenstown? Here are our picks of the top adventure activities in the resort!
Bungy Jump: The Kawarau Bridge is famously known as the world home of bungy, with entrepreneur A. J. Hackett opening the world’s first commercial bungy jumping venture, a 43m jump over the Kawarau River, off the historic Kawarau suspension bridge in 1988. Since then, the bungy team have been providing adrenaline fuelled adventures to hundreds of thousands of thrill seekers. We’ve created our Originals combo – a 43m bungy jump at the Kawarau Bridge and a Jet boat trip with KJet, the world’s first Jet boating company.
Jet Boat: You can’t visit Queenstown without jumping on a Jet boat! 15,000 years ago, Lake Wakatipu was formed when a massive glacier pushed through the land and created the distinctive ‘S’ shaped lake. KJet is the only Jet boat operator that offers full throttle trips across three waterways when you thunder across Lake Wakatipu, and dart down the mighty Shotover and Kawarau Rivers in our Big Yellow Twin Engine Jet boats.
Para-sailing: Get a bird’s eye view over Queenstown when you soar high above Lake Wakatipu, on a tandem flight with Queenstown Paraflights. You’ll be rewarded with 360 degree views over Queenstown in this adventure activity, as you soar 200 metres above New Zealand’s adventure capital.
Hydro Attack: Experience Hydro Attack a shark boat that accelerates from 0 to 80 kilometres per hour in less than 4 seconds. Throw in leaps of up to 5 meters out of the crystal clear waters of Lake Wakatipu, a low centre of gravity, 90 degree rolls and a few tight turns and you’re on a water based roller-coaster ride. You can book these three activities in our epic Bay Thriller Combo and save $$.
iFly: All thrills don’t have to be outdoors! iFly is New Zealand’s only Indoor Skydiving centre and offers the incredible thrill of human flight, without having to jump out of a plane. You’re guided by your flight instructor when you take a leap of faith into the wall-to-wall cushion of air on which anyone can safely float.
Fly high with Glacier Southern Lakes: Take to the skies on a once in a life time helicopter flight over Queenstown, including a spectacular landing on the Remarkables mountain range. Team this up with a Skyline Gondola and Luge in our High Flyer combo, and get three amazing adventure activities for one great price.
World-renowned for our adventure activities, Queenstown is home to an epic range of adrenaline activities all guaranteed to get your blood pumping!
