Taupo is the cheapest place in NZ to do a skydive and TTS is definitely the place to do it. There's no doubt about it, the skydive itself is absolutely out of this world. Definitely go for the 15000ft as opposed to the 12000ft. Its no difference in how scared you are, but you get a longer time to experience it as the bad thing about them is that they are over in no time and as soon as you touch the ground you're eager to go back up. The team are very friendly and professional, nice smooth landings! It does feel a little like a production line, no sooner have you landed they're off to get attached to the next tandem.
The only downside is the pics/dvd. You have to get a package, there's no paying for it individually. The freefall pics we got were great, we weren't fussed about a dvd but it came with the pics anyway as they have to send another diver up to do it. The dvd isn't personalised at all, its a few minutes of you falling and the rest is everyone else who was in the plane with you - so not really worth it, and its quite poor quality.
