Kawarau Jet +Kawarau Bungy
JET BOAT + AJ HACKETT BUNGY JUMP
TAKE ON TWO OF THE WORLD’S FIRST!
Queenstown is renowned for being the adventure capital of the world and no bucket list is complete without experiencing these two iconic original activities – AJ Hackett Kawarau Bridge Bungy Jump and Kawarau Jet (KJet). We’ve teamed up with AJ Hackett to bring you The Originals combo for one great price!
If you’re going to throw yourself off a perfectly good bridge, then you may as well take a leap of faith in Queenstown where it all began at the Kawarau Suspension Bridge, the world home of Bungy. This original 43 metre Bungy Jump is still the most famous of leaps. For that extra adrenaline rush, try a dunk in the mighty Kawarau River.
Then, get ready for an insane high speed 60 minute Jet boat ride thundering down the world famous Kawarau and Shotover Rivers. Go full throttle at speeds of 95kph on the fastest and meanest Jet boats in town. You’ll be screaming to go faster.
Minimum age to Bungy is 10 years old. Children 14 and under require an adult to sign consent at check-in and accompany them on their experience. Must weigh between 35kg to 235kg.
With our Originals Combo you are free to choose when you want to go (subject to availability).

KJet Jet boat trip
Q. What should I wear on the Jet boat?
A. For your comfort we recommend that you dress for the weather conditions on the day, keeping in mind that in our boats you will be travelling at 95kph and therefore the wind-chill can be frosty! Don’t forget to bring a waterproof jacket, your sunglasses, (or goggles in winter) sunscreen, as well as hats & gloves in winter months. Please ensure your little ones are dressed especially warm.
Q. Can I take my bags on the Jet boat?

Q. Can I take my camera on the Jet boat?
A. On our trip there are many fantastic photo opportunities so YES, we’d love you to take your camera on board to capture these moments and share them. However, your camera is taken on board at your own risk, keep in mind with Jet boating there is the risk of getting slightly wet and we need you to be able to hold on to the hand rails, especially during our 360° spins. If you need more information about this please chat to our Reservations Team and Drivers when you check-in for your trip.
Q. Will I get wet on the Jet boat?
