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’. Located upstream of Huka Falls, and just 5 minutes from the Great Lake. Videos of your experience can be purchased after your death-defying leap!

Taupo Cliffhanger swingers are released from 43 metres and then swoop down to approx 4.5 metres above the Waikato River reaching speeds of approx 70KPH. Operating from the same site as Taupo bungy so you can do both activities at once if you like.
