Skydiving in Queenstown is definitely an outdoor sport that is worth coming to experience here. Everyone takes a parked plane and flies to an altitude of more than 3,000 meters in the sky, and then jumps off the plane under the leadership of a professional instructor to fly freely in the air. At the same time, a professional photographer will accompany you to take photos for you. It is really a thrilling and enjoyable high-altitude experience.
When you come to Queenstown, you must experience the skydiving here. Everyone jumped off the plane from an altitude of more than 3,000 meters under the leadership of the instructor. At a glance, you can see the beauty of Queenstown, the blue lakes, and the rolling snow-capped mountains. We fly above it like birds. It is really amazing and exciting.
Skydiving has always been in my life list, but I didn't expect it to be realized in Queenstown. It was really exciting. I was a little scared at first, but I was very happy to finish the whole process later. Finally completed one of my life dreams.
[Important lessons learned]: If you have a skydiving video, please close your mouth all the way and don't let the wind enter your mouth, it will be ugly and distorted. Also, look at the camera more and interact with gestures a little more, so that it will look more vivid. If you can smile quietly, that's the best. The most important thing is to keep your mouth shut! At 8:30 in the morning, go to the store in the town to assemble and register, and then choose on the spot whether you need to pay extra for shooting. I remember that I saw on the guide before that there are 3 options for photo and video packages, and the price increases sequentially. But there are only two options when it comes to the scene. The first is the hand-held photo and video package, which costs $189. The second is the ultimate high-altitude skydiving package, $329. The first package is simply that you wear GoPro on your head and the coach also wears one on his hand. The screen shot must be a big head shot, there is no scenery, the face was deformed by the wind, and it must be ugly if it is shot at such a close distance! In the second package, in addition to the first equipment, there is another staff member who will jump with you specifically, take the panoramic view for you, and interact with you on the way. In comparison, this one will be more comprehensive and a little better. But the price difference is also relatively large. In my opinion, 99[%] of the people present basically chose package two. And there are obviously more girls parachuting than boys. The parachuting project in Queenstown is divided into three heights, 15,000 feet or 4,500 meters; 12,000 feet or 3,600 meters; and 9,000 feet or 2,700 meters. In this way, generally speaking, the total cost of skydiving is more than three thousand. Anyway, you have to prepare for at least half a day to go skydiving, because you have to drive from town to the base of the skydiving, and then the base has to return to town. You have to wait for your session in the middle, and then you have to change your clothes and train the coach briefly. Take a plane up high in the sky and then land. Finally, we have to wait for the U disk to edit the video. Quite tossing. Xiaoya didn’t make a scream during the entire parachuting process. The coach was still very surprised. For fear that I fainted, he kept asking me "are you OK?" In fact, I just felt pain in my ears, the kind of cochlear pain. , Especially tinnitus, in short, it is very uncomfortable. But I'm not scared at all, so I am smiling hard at the camera, although smiling like crying. The moment you jump down, you have no time to hesitate, because the coach won't ask you, so he jumped. Although weightlessness is severe, you and the coach are tightly tied together, and the sense of security is still very comfortable. I think bungee jumping is more terrible than skydiving. Someone is following the skydiving, and some people are always talking in your ear. Bungee jumping is completely dependent on one's own courage, including the most terrible first step. After a rapid drop to a certain height, the instructor will open the parachute, and then the two of you will start circling slowly in the air, circle by circle, it feels very random, but the landing place is so precise. All this is controlled by the coach behind you, so please enjoy it with your heart, these rare few minutes.
The moment I got out of the hatch, I was very nervous. The coach would not communicate with you whether you are ready. After the countdown to three, tilt your head back, let you hold the strap with both hands, and go out at once. It began to spin in the air, just like the skydiving show I've seen on TV before. It was very fun and interesting. At this time, there was no fear and fear at all, and there were various novelties.
It's so exciting, I'm the kind of person who's afraid to play, and if you like the limit, you can try it.
