Bungy New Zealand


Ever since 1988, they are a proudly Kiwi organisation. Fuelling people with courage and adrenaline.


Bungy has always been a life-changing experience. It began with a small group of people in Vanuatu. They fearlessly threw themselves from huge towers for centuries with merely a few vines around their feet. They called it ‘land-diving’, and legend says that it started when a mistreated wife threw herself from a tall tree, saving herself with the vines while the husband fell to his death.
The event was reconstructed annually, only by women. Eventually, men would join in to prove their courage, and the tradition is upheld to this day.


AJ Hackett, along with a few mates, saw a video of this group in action and, in true Kiwi fashion, his imagination took over. He and Henry van Asch started developing Bungy cords with a bit of help from Auckland University Scientists. They knew people would be just as pumped as they were to take a leap of faith, push the limits and live without fear. After some extensive testing, they needed a radical way to demonstrate their faith in the Bungy ropes.
What they did would make headlines around the world. In June 1987 they snuck up the Eiffel Tower at night. The next morning, AJ jumped from the iconic building, he was immediately arrested and released 5 minutes later.
Bungy took off, the world’s first commercial Bungy operation opened at the Kawarau Bridge in November 1988.
Visitors would soon flock in from around the world to take part, in what would eventually be recognised at the birth of adventure tourism in New Zealand.


It’s been 32 years, but they’re still just as committed to the customers mustering up the courage to do something they’ll never forget. Across six sites in three iconic Kiwi destinations – Queenstown, Auckland and Taupo – they continue to unleash adrenaline-fueled adventures on the world’s thrill-seekers!
