Feel adrenalin flood your body as you release the tow, diving towards the valley floor at exhilarating speeds, before you rocket up the other side. Feed the control freak inside, where you’re firmly in the pilot’s seat.
lol i think i wouldnt be doing ANY of that stuff ever anyway lol. Unless the rapid was very slow….
Um where is it that spectators can go and see people bungy? Coz that would be interesting.
The first jump where every one watches is the Kawarau Bridge jump.
yeah a lot of the queenstown activities are pretty active orientated, its like a grown ups playground. There is tourist shops and burger joints and stuff like that in the heart of the city.
I think there was a casino there, i didn’t notice to much cuz i was one of the people doing all the crazy stuff (FYI do NOT do the mad dog)
I saw a shop that rented out bikes so you could see the city. There was also horse back riding that you could do, im not sure were it went but the area is so beautiful that any of it would be great. There is alot of culture in that area im sure there is a tour for that as well.
hope that helps
is the mad dog crap?
yes it is
