What you need to know

Calling all thrill seekers... this experience is the one for you! Release the adrenalin junkie in you with the Taupo Swing. If you're a sucker for bungy jumping or maybe you have a fear of falling head first, then this extreme activity has all your answers. Dive feet first above Waikato River Valley in this free fall swing experience. Riders who dare to take the plunge are harnessed in at 44m above the water, before soaring through the Taupo skies reaching speeds of up to 70 kph. Choose the option of a countdown, or for some extra thrill, choose for a surprise release.. either away you'll soon be free falling. Be mesmerised by the stunning views of the water below you and the surrounding hinterland when you finally reach a slower swing speed.

The swing can accomodate up to two people on each swing, so why not round up a friend and enjoy this unique experience together! If you're looking for a one of a kind way to experience the stunning views of the Taupo area, then the Taupo swing is truly the perfect experience for you!
