If you are looking for a good adrenaline rush, head to Queenstown, New Zealand on the South Island. There are plenty of adventures to be had in the 'Adventure Capital of the World', but I chose the highest bungee jump available in New Zealand. AJ Hackett drives you from Queenstown out to a 'pod' that is hung from cables over a gorge. The drive is beautiful and a bit scary as they make a crazy ascent in the final 100 meters. Once onsite, they ferry you out to the pod where you leap from a small ledge 134 Meters (about 440 ft.) toward the bottom of the gorge. It is a great rush and shouldn't be missed.
