Auckland
Jump! New Zealand is home to the bungee jump, invented in Queenstown and now exported all over the world. The good news is that you don’t have to go far (horizontally) to drop far (vertically). Auckland’s Sky Tower, the highest structure in the Southern Hemisphere, has its very own “SkyJump,” with fixed lines to make sure you drop straight down. The rush of falling 630 feet at up to 50 miles per hour will literally take your breath away. Don’t worry—the landing will be soft, just make sure you take in the views before your leap of faith.
