Skydiving in Queenstown is the most well-known of all extreme sports in New Zealand except bungee jumping. Most people are eager to try before going to New Zealand, but it is not a minority to escape from the crucial time. The reason is none of them, it is too exciting!
The skydiving day should go to the skydiving company to report in the office of Queenstown. The staff will tell if the weather is suitable. If there is no problem, there is a special car to pick up the base for skydiving. The journey takes about 20 minutes.
After arriving at the base, group by number, no more than 6 people, because the plane can only sit at most 18 people, don't ask me why there are only 6 guests, because the remaining 12 are coaches! Everyone will see their coach and hurry up, because then your life will be controlled by him.
On the plane, the cabin is small, 18 people are divided into two rows, one next to the other, flying to 10,000 feet, the coach will let you breathe oxygen, afraid to take two more, although not at all.
At 15,000 feet, the cabin door is open, and everyone jumps one by one, and you can't hesitate. Because you don't jump behind the people, the coach will push you down. The rest of the time is to open your mouth. I shouted my throat, but considering that there are two cameras facing me, the poor manners will affect the image. I try my best to make myself look elegant. Unfortunately, the goggles dont live up to expectations, so I keep adjusting, otherwise my eyes wont open. .
Overall, the process was very smooth, the coach was very responsible, the scenery was beautiful, except for the fear. But how can people see a broader world without taking a brave step? I do not regret.
