Skydiving in New Zealand 12,000ft above the mountains

15 minutes up, 45 seconds down! Watch me jump out of a plane at 12,000 ft above Queenstown, New Zealand with NZONE Skydive Queenstown.  Falling at 200kph! Arial views of one of the South Islands prettiest areas: the Remarkables mountain range, lakes, and snow-capped peaks!

For some reason, the thought of skydiving didn’t scare me at all.  The morning of I was fine, Adam dropped me off and I decided to upgrade my jump from 9,000ft to 12,000ft! Why not?

We took a ten-minute ride outside of Queenstown, where I would be suited up and off in a plane I go.  Once up high in the sky, I realized I had no other way down, and when it was my turn to roll out of the plane….I had no time to be scared!

Next thing I know I was jumping/falling/screaming down 12,000ft! It was awesome, still can’t believe I did it! I would highly recommend it, and if you’re scared of heights you should be fine.  Because like I said you won’t have time to be scared!

Not a bad view if it were to be your last…

Have you ever sky dived? How high? Where at? Would love to hear all your stories!

That view looks incredible! I did my skydive in Taupo and loved it too. New Zealand is without doubt the best place for any extreme sport!

I went skydiving in Vegas from around 15,000 feet. Easily the coolest adrenaline thing I have done; even cooler than bungee jumping from a hot air balloon!

Oh my goodness, I can't believe you have done that. I like an adventure, but when it comes to skydiving I draw my line. Good for you for trying it though!

You could do it. Once your up, there is only one way down!!

Wahoooooo!!!! Hannah, so freakin' stoked you did it! (Glances at Adam with raised eyebrow)

I'm so bummed I didn't get a chance to explore more of Queenstown, those mountains are Mindblowing!!! I bungee jumped there but looks like Skydiving is beautiful in that region.

Oh, and did you see the girl as you are boarding the train flash the gnarly symbol :)

By the way, I'm shocked they only had one camera on you oldschool like that. Some of the other ones have every jumper with a GoPro on their wrist.

Either way, cool stuff!

I did it! Don't think we would have gotten Adam out of the plane, that IS if we ever got him in the plan!

Totally saw that girl!

No they had a camera man jump with us and we hung onto him for a little. Was a great experience for sure.
