Taupo Bungy & Cliffhanger Extreme Swing

Taupo Bungy is NZ’s highest water touch bungy jump. From 47 metres high, plunge into the magnificent Waikato River below – touching the water with your fingertips or fully submerge yourself in the crystal clear fresh water; or opt to stay high and dry! Solo and tandem bungy jumps available.

Alternatively, try the feet-first, free-fall option – the Taupo Cliffhanger Extreme Swing. Dangle mid-air and wait for the surprise release before you plummet towards the river, reaching speeds of 70 kpk/h. Available solo or tandem, though tandems are recommended as they go faster and higher! Catch your breath and enjoy the views as you head back to the platform via winch.
