"Bungee Jumping"
Ranked #3 in Queenstown Extreme Sport Challenge

"I tried bungee jumping once in my lifetime, and I had to make an appointment in advance to register, and then arrived at the designated time, weighed, signed a life and death status, and went to the bridge to line up. It was very cold and windy on the bridge. I waited for a long time and it was frozen like a dog. It is recommended that people who want to go can wear more clothes. When I was in line, I didn't meet a small Chinese partner. There were more young people in Europe and the United States. I was joking and enthusiastic throughout the whole process. I was very nervous and in sharp contrast with them. Finally it was my turn, the staff immediately said a few words in Chinese, called me buyaopa, and then asked me yaobuyaoshui? I didn't react the next time, and it took a few seconds to realize that he was asking me if I should touch the water when I went down. Haha, I said no water, and my brain was blank. After all the safety measures have been taken, you will slowly move to the edge of the platform. There are photo spots where the staff will make you wave and smile, but you really can’t laugh at this time. Seeing that I was rather stunned, the working guy asked me if I needed a push, and I said that I would dance by myself. At this time, I couldn’t translate it in English. Don't hesitate next, as soon as you close your eyes, you jump down. The descent speed is too fast, and I bottomed out before I could yell. When I bounced, my body would involuntarily spin around wildly. This was a bit dizzy, and it was over after ten seconds. There will be a small boat stretching towards you towards the olive branch, you just need to grab it, and the two rowing brothers on the boat will chat with you. My companion helped me to record the whole video. She said why you didn't say a word... After the end, there was no discomfort. The towel on the feet was tied very well, and there was no feeling of pulling at all. One jump is more than 1,000 yuan, and there are more than 200 photos and videos. It’s just that the heart before the jump will be scared. It’s just like overcoming the fear and jumping. It’s not scary as you imagined, so don’t hesitate on the platform. The more you drag, the more you are afraid. . I have experienced bungee jumping once in my life, and it feels worthwhile."

"Parachuting"
Business hours TBA (Local time)

"Parachuting was arranged in Wanaka at 3 pm, 12,000 feet, and $359. It is estimated that it will be the last one in the afternoon. It was 3 o'clock when I arrived there, and everyone changed their clothes and was waiting. I hurriedly signed and paid for the weight and chose the way of taking pictures. There are 3 ways to take pictures, the most expensive person to follow, 359 dollars. The cheapest instructor held a gopro to shoot at $199. I chose the cheapest one. After that, I went in to change clothes. I probably didn't have time to do any training. The coach told me that I had to lean my head on him when I jumped down, and I had to lift my feet when I landed, and then immediately got off the plane. Along the way, the coach will let you say hello to the camera, and ask you what you think. I use English to talk nonsense, but I can actually speak Chinese, haha, anyway. As the plane flew higher and higher, I had no time to take into account the beautiful scenery outside the window, and my heart beat faster. Almost ten minutes later, the cabin door opened, and the wind outside was blowing. I was the second in line to jump. I moved to the cabin door with the instructor. Once I closed my eyes, I planted. There is a 45-second free fall at 12,000 feet. Because the wind is very strong, the sense of weightlessness is not strong. The coach kept shooting me to show me the camera. After landing at a certain height, the parachute is opened. After the parachute is opened, it is purely floating slowly, enjoying the beautiful scenery underneath. It is really beautiful to see Wanaka from high altitude. The coach has to control the direction of the umbrella from time to time, so he feels a little dizzy. The landing was also very smooth, the whole process was actually very fast, I only took twenty minutes from start to finish. Later, the ears swelled a bit, which should be due to the pressure difference between the internal and external pressures. It will be fine after a while. Wait for half an hour and you will be given a USB flash drive. There are also computers over there to get a sneak peek. After I came back and watched the video, I found that the face was distorted by the wind. Wearing goggles is completely a frog face. The coach is definitely better than me in finding the lens."
