Trip Moments

For the first time in life, I challenged the limit. The 15,000-foot skydiving in Queenstown, New Zealand is the most comprehensive strategy. When it comes to extreme sports, I have to say that skydiving and skydiving will definitely think that New Zealands extreme sports are famous all over the world, and Queenstowns skydiving is the best in New Zealand. of. Last time I didn't choose to skydiving in Cairns, Australia, it was a very wise choice. I finally jumped in Queenstown. Originally, I was more afraid of losing weight. In fact, there was no sense of weight loss in parachuting. Before I decided to jump, I consulted many small partners and said that I didnt lose weight, so I was relieved to jump. Since I want to jump, I have to jump the best, so I chose to jump in the sky dive in Queenstown, New Zealand. I booked it online in advance. I jumped at 10 in the morning and went to sky dive check-in ten minutes earlier. Because skydiving is very weather-conscious, it is directly canceled if the weather is bad. In Queenstown, one day earlier, the weather was not good, so I was very worried that I couldnt jump. I could only keep praying. Fortunately, God listened to my prayers. It was so lucky the next day. After check-in, it is OK to jump, it will let you fill out a form first, don't worry, have Chinese service, then watch related videos, the staff will explain, and then confirm whether you want to buy photo video package. Then you will take the shuttle bus to the skydiving base. The journey takes about 20 minutes. There are skydiving costumes, umbrella caps, goggles and gloves. After the change, the coach took you on board. The coaches are very professional and humorous. Don't worry at all. After the airplane has hovered to a certain height, the pilot will let you feel the feeling of weightlessness in advance. At the moment the airplane door is opened, a cold wind blows in. I don't want to jump. I haven't waited for me to slow down, the coach has pushed me outside the hatch, and I have been pushed down if I don't have time to regret it. The moment I just went down, I felt that I had been falling down. I didnt lose weight. I fell freely for about 60 seconds. The coach opened the parachute. The next step was to fly freely to see the beauty of Queenstown. Although it is not adult-like, but you must spread your arms and fly, at this moment you will feel that you are really a bird. The whole skydiving process takes about 5 minutes, 12,000 feet will be shorter, and you have already landed without enjoying it. . Then is the time to wait for photos and videos. You can take a photo at the base and finally give you a 4g USB flash drive with photos and videos. Tips: 1 Reservation method: All major OTA platforms in China can be booked, and on-site registration is also possible, but the peak season must be booked in advance. 2 Price: 12,000 feet 349 NZD (1:5) 15,000 feet 449 NZD coach hand-held photo + video 199 NZD third person high-altitude shot + coach shooting photo video 359 NZD 3 skydiving about 3.5 hours, More people will take longer. 4 skydiving completely watching the weather, the weather is not good, cancel directly, you can choose to refund or postpone 5 photos and videos can only be booked on-site, can not be booked online
