Activity description

This exhilarating adrenaline rush adds another dimension to the traditional bungy site. It offers those who are challenged by the idea of hanging upside down, a feet-first mind-blowing rush, and those who are all about 'extreme' another activity to do before or after their bungy experience.

Swing with nature...
Swingers can choose a countdown or the surprise option, either way the release cord is pulled and the freefall kicks in immediately. Swinging down towards the crystal clear waters below, then arcing up to nearly 180°, this experience will reach speeds of up to 70kph. As the swinging slows, you can finally take in the intensely scenic view of the Waikato River Valley, while you enjoy the ride back to the platform. Swing alone or with a buddy, you choose.

You've found two of Taupo's leading adventure activities in one place. Located in the stunning volcanic Waikato River Valley, Taupo Bungy is considered one of the world's most spectacular bungy sites, featuring the world's first cantilever platform and New Zealand's first 'splash cam'. Taupo Cliffhanger is New Zealand's newest extreme swing, which lets swingers take in the view while they swing through nature. Located upstream of Huka Falls, and just 5 minutes from the Great Lake.

Taupo Bungy & Cliffhanger's reputation and success is reliant on the stunning scenery and natural beauty surrounding the site. Set above the clear and fresh waters of the Waikato River, it lies in the midst of a public track between the Taupo township and the mighty Huka Falls. Their aim is to protect and preserve this pristine environment and continue to give their customers a clean, green experience, whether they choose to bungy jump or swing within it, or merely take in the views.

Extreme swing - well worth it
  • 5 / 5

Scariest thing I have ever done. Easier than jumping from a platform as someone else pulls the rope to make you swing

Amazing rush!

Costs €155 but if it's something you've not done before and you like adrenaline-filled activities, it's well worth it! It seems much less scary than a bungy jump, better if you have back problems and the views are incredible. You're not in control of when you fall so that makes it easier!

Great buzz

Well worth the rush
