Queenstown: Thrill Mecca

The will to thrill Kiwi-style shows no signs of subsiding, with bungy related features by the BBC and  Observer, and one covering the full adventure spectrum – from tandem parapenting to fly-by-wire – in the Straits Times. BBC: “The truth is that Queenstown’s economic success is down to no one factor, but rather a combination of opportunity and preparation that’s led to an unusual symbiosis between the competing businesses here […] The great hope locals have is that Queenstown’s now got the critical mass to ride out the sort of boom and bust cycles that have plagued life here in the past. But as long as there are thrill seekers, there’ll always be Queenstown.”
