Skydive Lake Taupo - Freefall (New Zealand) Reviews
Newest Review: ... general idea of how much you're prepared to spend beforehand as you can easily get persuaded to part with $500 for the full package (remember, these people are professional sales people!) After watching a DVD of someone's jump, you are asked if you wish to jump from 12000 or 15000 feet (decisions decisions!) and whether you want your experience filmed by your tandem jumper (this is the max price option).
