- ABOUT THE SPOT
Bungee Jumping in Skyline Gondola, Queenstown, Otago New Zealand
The town is surrounded by Lake Wakatipu and the awe-inspiring Southern Alps, with spectacular mountains such as the Remarkables, Cecil Peak and Ben Lomond. Queenstown and the surrounding area was the setting for the legendary films Lord of the Rings and X-Men Origins.
Despite the mountainous landscape, the climate can be characterized as oceanic, with warm summers and temperatures that can reach up to 30°C/86°, and cold winters with frequent snowfalls.
Queenstown is the birthplace of bungee jumping (or bungy, as they love to call it here). The Ledge, based in the Skyline Gondola on Bob’s Peak, is the place all bungee-jumping lovers should visit and experience.
Here, at 1312 ft/400 m above Queenstown, you have the option of jumping down the cliff or suspending and swinging up in the air. Enjoy the adrenaline pumping into your body when the fall changes to swing and vice versa.
Don’t miss the rare chance of jumping during the night!
