Velocity Valley – Bungy and Gravity Swing Combo
Come experience two of our most thrilling adventures jam-packed into one combo.
Start off easy with the Swoop, the 40-metre high giant gravity swing or jump straight into it and leap from the 43 metres high Bungy tower.
Swoop is a 40-metre high giant swing, taking 1, 2 or 3 people at a time. You will be placed in a modified harness and hoisted 40 metres into the air. At the 40 metre mark, you will be counted down and on the count of 3, you will pull the release cord to start the swing.
Bungy: looking down from a height of 43 metres, you will realise that the time has come to jump. Be sure to take in the gorgeous views of the farmland, Lake Rotorua and Mokoia Island before taking a leap of faith over the edge. You fly over the amazing, glittering Ngongotaha Stream before taking a refreshing dunk!
