If you're looking for the ultimate Queenstown Skydiving experience, look no further! New Zealand's NZONE skydive will give you the chance to plummet from a speeding aircraft at 15,000 feet at "terminal velocity" - around 200 kilometres per hour - towards the ground for the ultimate adrenaline rush that will leave you feeling more alive than ever before!
As the "birthplace' of Tandem skydiving in New Zealand - alongside its reputation as the Adventure Capital of the World - Queenstown serves as the ideal destination for our dropzone - located at the base of the famously majestic Remarkables mountain range, surrounded by a working sheep farm, you won't find a similar jumping destination in the world!
All of the latest, safest and most state-of-the-art equipment is incorporated to ensure the fear factor is only as high as it needs be - and our impeccable safety record speaks for itself! Book today, face the challenge and walk away with the sense of accomplishment that only skydiving can provide.

Should I book in for a skydive at the beginning or end of my trip?
Definitely the beginning!!! The reason being is should the weather not be suitable on the first day of your trip, we can then move you to alternative days. Always book air excursions first, then land and water based activities last.

Providing we have enough space in our buses we can take spectators for free. This won't be guaranteed and only available at the time of the trip. They are welcome to drive themselves to watch though
Can I take my camera on the plane with me?
No, this is due to safety and insurance reasons, but you can take photos on the ground while getting ready. We do provide an option for photos and videos, which look amazing! The cost of these are $189 for photos, $189 for the USB Video or $229 for both. They can be purchased on the day and are WELL worth it!!
Can I drive to the Queenstown drop zone myself?
Yes you can, but you will still need to check in at the Nzone Skydive Centre for the briefing and then they will give you directions.
