New Zealand launches world-first adventure experience

Released this morning (23.9.2014), 5X1NZ is an only-in-New-Zealand experience offering a five-thrills adrenalin adventure in, around and over Queenstown New Zealand.

 

 

In a global partnership between Tourism New Zealand and STA Travel, visitors to New Zealand can now book an adrenalin-seeker’s ultimate dream - the chance to complete five of the world’s most exhilarating adrenalin sports, within a single day.

 

 

Visitors who complete this unique, world-first tourism experience will join an elite club of adrenalin seekers as they skydive, snowboard, mountain bike, bungy and jetboat, all within a single day and in one adrenalin-filled epic experience after the other.

 

 

To demonstrate the new experience, Tourism New Zealand challenged film director Justin McMillan and skydive athlete Chuck Berry to film a non-stop action sequence, during which Chuck completed all five sports within a single hour.

 

 

Commenting on the challenge Chuck Berry said: \"I’m used to jumping out of planes, but the idea of free-fall followed by boarding, biking, bungy and boats was enough to make my blood pump. As far as I know, no one else has ever done it and now anyone that’s mad enough can give it a go. I couldn’t take the smile off my face for days afterwards.\"

 

 

New Zealand’s Queenstown - home of the first commercial bungy jumping operation - is celebrated as the adventure sports capital of the world. Travellers go to Queenstown to try everything from skydiving through to jet boats, heli-skiing and downhill-mountain biking. But what makes Queenstown unique, is not just the spectacular landscapes or the buzzing party scene in town, it’s how many of these adventure sports you can do within a 50km radius. Last year more than 500,000 young travellers visited New Zealand.

 

 

\"People come here because they know they’ll have a life experience worth remembering and because there’s so much to do in such a small space that their trips will be packed full of memories. The 5X1NZ is just one more thing to add to people’s bucket list of things to do whilst they’re here,\" says Tourism New Zealand chief executive Kevin Bowler.

 

 

Emma Hudson, STA Travel Group’s market development consultant, describes the 5x1NZ as \"a very exciting new way to experience a raft of adrenaline sports! These sports are incredibly popular with our customers all over the world and now our exclusive 5x1NZ pack offers the chance for anyone to experience the thrill.\"

 

 

The 5X1NZ adventure package will be available exclusively from STA Travel from 23 September 2014. The product includes an NZONE tandem sky dive, downhill mountain bike trails at Rabbit Ridge Bike Resort, a Shotover Jet boat trip, AJ Hackett Bungy jump and a variety of ski combo pass options as add-ons for those travelling in NZ’s winter season - plus an organised day itinerary.
