Lake Taupo | New Zealand :: Skydiving Is For Tourists Too! from The Bettendorfs on Vimeo.
To keep up with Terry and these adventure loving Kiwis, Manali decided to throw herself 15,000 feet out of a perfectly good plane over a lake. Where else but in the sky diving capital of the world where 30,000 crazies perform the same feat each year? She was a little hesitant after seeing her young, afro-clad, uni-browed tandem partner and tried to convince others to switch, but to no avail. Luckily, he had already surpassed 3,000+ jumps and landed her safely back in one piece!
Details: Freefall Bungy at Lake Taupo Airport
Cost: $339 NZD for 15,000 ft tandem jump with 1 minute free fall
Extras: $179 for a camera person to jump along side you to document with video and photos; 10% off for YHA members
Damn, now I want to go skydiving.
Awesome video!! Was watching…but saw no hang-ups in your shoot being pulled. BIG PLUS!! No "thumbs ups" signals to decipher (-; hehe
Lots of my friends did this but now way was I gonna do it! I like my feet on the ground! At least you had fun! Looks like it was a beautiful day too.
It was a perfect day! If you're going to do it, definitely pick a scenic spot – it's amazing to see all the geography from so high up!
i do not belive this. you did not tell me. anyways it’s over. good luck
Mom! I called you after because you would have tried to tell me not to go, haha!
Congratulations! I so wanted to do this but we were at the tail end of our trip and didn't have the time to make it happen. But, I am absolutely going to sky dive somewhere in the world. 🙂
