Both my adult sons ages 25 and 39 skydived and had an exceptionally awesome time. We went on this trip so I could make some memories with my boys and we definitely did that. The first sky diving for them and I was there to watch. Everyone was very good in explaining everything and they had an awesome experience. I still see my son showing the video to people 3 months later.

Absolutely fabulous! We jumped from 15,000 feet. Ruben, my tandem instructor, was calm, professional and wonderful. I highly recommend getting the go pro photos - however pricey.

The jump was awesome and memorable! My 11 year old son and I did the jump from 15,000 ft and no regrets! Only advice is the pressure on the ears is something to look out for.

This is THE place to do a skydive! Very professional crew. The briefing was made to be fun! The skydive was totally Awesome! The views on the way down is spectacular! Thank you Nzone!

Must do! N Zone does it the best. My husband wears glasses so for those who are wearing glasses, one recommendation, test the glasses you get to wear over your existing glasses and adjust them while on ground before taking flight. My husband found his very tight and was uncomfortable. Or just wear lenses!

The best ever trip. Our family of 4 enjoyed skydiving and would go back again. The instructors were just amazing and very calm.

In 3 words: Best Experience Ever! I do prefer adventurous vacations, and always thought of skydiving as both appealing and terrifying! Once I scheduled the jump for myself and my daughter, I began having second thoughts out of sheer fear, which subsequently proved baseless. Everyone at NZone is professional and friendly. Clearly, they are all about safety first. We jumped from 15000 and would definitely do it again with NZone in the future. Two suggestions based upon our experience schedule the jump early in the day and at the beginning of the vacation, in case of changing weather conditions which may result in a reschedule or two, and definitely hire the photographer to record the event. Our photo books are an excellent keepsake of this incredible experience. Finally, my advice to anyone who is considering a jump, just do it with NZone!

Great price, service, communication and amazing sky dive!!!!! It was a stunning view and I had soooo much fun.

My boyfriend ended up proposing during our skydive, so of course it was amazing!!! Aside from the proposal though, the skydiving itself was one of the best experiences of my life. The view as you jump is unlike any other. I can't think of a more beautiful place you could skydive. In addition, the staff at NZONE were wonderful. Due to weather we had to reschedule our original jump. They went out of their way to accommodate us and were able to squeeze us in later in the day. They helped my boyfriend (now fiance) coordinate everything for the proposal, and even gave us the DVD of the proposal for free! If you're going to jump out of a plane, Queenstown is the place to do it!

It was great.The only thing I would suggest is that they tell people ahead of time to take a seasick pill that morning before the jump. It probably would have helped me with the turns after the chute was pulled. The whole group were very professional in all aspects. I am really glad I got the pictures and video.

I did it. Considering my being afraid of heights. I am 64 and all my friends and co-workers thought I was nuts to do it. All was organized so perfectly it was real fun. To those who are not sure, there was no fear and you do not have to do anything yourself. Super instructor will be in control

This was one of the best things I've done in my entire life. I did the 15000 ft jump and was pretty proud of myself for having the guts to do it. NZone was very professional and made me feel safe the whole time. I was not afraid at all. Take the photos and dvd package as well even though it's expensive. It is totally worth it. I loved the view and being able to see it from above 360 degrees was mind-blowing. Like they say, "Achievement doesn't come sweeter". Best thing to do in Queenstown!

WOW!!! I only jumped from 9000ft but I would definitely use these guys again when I go for one of the higher jumps. Great service.

Adreneline junkies look no further. A 45 sec freefall from 12000 feet is exhilarating. You will reach terminal velocity at about 200 km per hour. Difficult to describe, but have you ever wondered what it would feel like to fly When the parachute pops, savour the magnificient views that Queenstown has to offer.
