GENERAL

  • Where is the Kawarau Bridge Bungy Site?
    It is located along State Highway #6, in the Gibbston Valley, the main highway on your way from Cromwell, Dunedin and Christchurch. It is located just 25 minutes outside of Queenstown, heading North in the direction of Cromwell.
  • I want to go tandem, can I?
    Yes, the Kawarau Bridge Bungy and the Auckland Harbour Bridge are the only 2 tandem Bungy options. And the Nevis Swing can also be done tandem. The maximum combined weight at the Kawarau is 235kg and in Auckland is 150kg. There cannot be more than a 30kg difference between the weight of the two Jumpers. Please note that other considerations will be taken into account on the day such as height difference and the weather, so we cannot guarantee until the day of your Jump that you will be able to do it tandem. However, we will work with you to ensure that you are taken care of.
  • Does a Thrillogy or any of your other combos have to be completed in one day?
    No. You have up to a year to complete all 3 or more of the chosen activities.
  • Is the gondola included for the Ledge Bungy?
    Unfortunately, we do not include the Gondola ticket in the price of the Ledge Bungy or the Ledge Swing.
  • Do I need to book ahead?
    We strongly suggest to all customers that they book at least 48hrs in advance for all activities to ensure that they secure a time and date that best suits them.
  • Can I drive myself?
    Yes and no... you can drive to the Kawarau Bridge Bungy, located on SH6 in the Gibbston Valley, just 25 minutes from Queesntown and to the Auckland Bridge Climb and Bungy Base in the Westhaven Reserve, just 10 minutes from downtown Auckland. The Ledge Bungy Site is only accessible via the Gondola or the Skyline access walking track. The Nevis site is strictly 4WD private access road only, so you must ride on our buses.
  • Can my friends and family come watch me?
    Absolutely! All of our sites have the capacity to host spectators too, depending on which site it is, there can be costs associated with spectating. See individual site pages for details.
  • Can I touch the water?
    Although we cannot always guarantee a water touch due to reasons outside our control, we can offer this option at the Kawarau Bridge Bungy and the Auckland Bridge Bungy.
  • What is the difference between a Swing and a Bungy?
    A Bungy Jump utilises our custom made Bungy Cords - after freefalling the cord stretches out to allow you to bounce a few times in an adrenalin fuelled but safe manner. Whilst our Swing attaches to you via wire cables and the Swing rope. Swingers never bounce, after a short freefall the wire or rope catches you and the sensation is the same as a rollercoaster- and you will swing in a massive arc.
    Which one is the biggest?
    The Nevis Bungy is the highest Bungy Jump in Australasia, it is a whopping 134metres!
  • What are the weight/height restrictions for a Bungy, Swing, Zip and Climb?
    The weight restrictions vary by product; here are a list of the minimum and maximum weights. There are no height restrictions on Queenstown Bungy Jumping or Swinging, but all Bridge Climbers and Auckland Bridge Bungy Jumpers must be 120cm and Zipriders must fit the harness correctly.

This USB provides direct connection to your personal devices through USB, standard iPhone, USB-C, Android and a MicroSD card that is removable… meaning you can download your content onto your device, and whack it straight on the gram! To find our current pricing and to purchase your photos and video - jump into our booking engine, choose your activity and select your photo & video package as an 'Add-On' at the end.
  • Can I purchase content from my activity at a later date?
    Yes! We keep all photos and videos indefinitely (except Zipride P&V which is kept for 6 months), however as our photo and video systems have been upgraded over the years, you will need to check with us first to ensure we still have your media. Just flick us an email on photovideo@bungy.co.nz and tell us which activity you did and when you completed it.
  • Can I purchase my photos and videos before my activity?
    Absolutely! You can save time after your activity by pre-purchasing your photos & videos online. Simply hit BOOK, lock in your activity and add your photos & video at the end. You can also speak to our Crew when you check-in for your activity.
  • What size is my video?
    The size of your video will depend on which activity you are doing, how long you take on the edge, and how many slow-mo replays we can fit in! The average is around 200mb per video.
  • What size are my digital photos?
    Your activity photos average anywhere between 1-4 megabytes, depending on the photos composition and colour palette. Your photos are shot on Canon or Nikon cameras, depending on the site/activity, in medium, “normal” jpg format. They can be printed A3 and will look great! We cannot provide the RAW format straight off the cameras, as they are simply too large to process in a timely manner for the volume of customers we have.
