Taupo Bungy. Jump from a cantilevered platform that projects out from a cliff 150 feet above the Waikato River. You can go for the "water touch" or dry versions.

The jumps cost from NZ$149 a shot and are available daily from 9 to 5. 202 Spa Rd., off Tongariro St., 1 km (½ mi) north of town, Taupo. 07/377–1135 or 0800/888–408. www.taupobungy.com.
