About these ratings

AJ Hackett Bungy is a global company that facilitates bungee jumping all over the world. However, the extreme-sport company sees Queenstown as a special adventure destination because it originated from this Kiwi town. In fact, the company's Kawarau Bridge site was where the first commercial bungee jump occurred in 1988. Since then, AJ Hackett Bungy has added two more locations in Queenstown — the Ledge Bungy and the Nevis Bungy, which is a 440-foot jump (that's 8.5 seconds of free fall). At Nevis and Ledge, you can also choose to "swing," but we're not talking about your average playground's swing set. The Nevis Swing, for instance, hurls you in a 984-foot arc at about 93-plus mph.

A TripAdvisor user recommends that visitors face their fears and just jump, saying, "The staff were excellent and I felt as safe as possible, and soon enough very high on adrenalin." 

The cost is high. At Kawarau and Ledge, you'll be charged 195 NZD (about $135 USD) for bungee jumping; at Nevis, the price for bungee jumping is 275 NZD (around $200 USD). For more information, visit the company's website.
