A member of the experienced Bungee Jump team will be there to welcome you and sign you in. To ensure your safety during the Bungee Jump, you will be weighed. Then it’s time to join the queue, watching other bungee jumpers return from their activity glowing and high on adrenaline!
You’ll be called up and after a second weight check to ensure you’re given the correct equipment, you’ll be harnessed up and given your bungee rope. Then it’s time to step aboard the jump cage and be hoisted 300ft into the air. On the way up, your Jump Master will explain exactly what will happen and answer any questions you may have. Then it’s the moment of truth: the gates open, you assume your position and it’s time to leap!
Afterwards the team will guide you in and take you out of your harness. You’ll get a certificate and, if you like, you can buy a photo or video as a memento of your achievement.
Note: For people with loss of leg or legs, a chest harness will be used as opposed to the traditional ankle harness. This will mean you are jumping feet first as opposed to head first. The team are fantastic and are considerate of people’s disabilities, but be aware that there may be elements of manhandling required in order to get you weighed and into the harness.
If you use a chest harness to jump, unfortunately, you cannot do a tandem Bungee Jump.
Is it safe?
Yes – however terrifying it feels! There are multiple safety checks and the Bungee jump team is very experienced.
How long does it take?
Please allow two hours for the whole activity. (It normally takes one hour.)
When can I try it?
The 300ft Bungee Jump Experience is available on selected weekends throughout the year, all year round.
What should I wear/bring?
All safety equipment is provided. Please just wear sensible clothes. All belongings and jewellery will have to be left on the ground before you jump. (Bear in mind you’ll be hanging upside down, so skirts and loose fitting tops may not be ideal!)
Can I bring a friend or carer?
If your friend is brave enough, you can do a tandem jump where you are harnessed together. Simply select the tandem bungee jump when making your purchase.
If your friends don’t fancy that, they are welcome to come along and watch at no charge. If you need a carer, your carer is welcome to go up in the jump cage with you and watch from 300ft as you take the plunge! For more information about carers, please see our Questions and Answers page.

This 300ft Bungee Jump site is located within the grounds of a historical and picturesque National Trust Manor House! The 300ft Bungee Jump takes place at the waters edge, over the stunning lake. Rising to the 300ft jump height, you will get to take in some amazing scenery as you overlook the 1000 acres of land attributed to this National Trust venue.
Due to the nature of this lake side location, the terrain from the Car Park to the jump site is on an unmade path and across grass. Wheelchair Users and visually impaired customers would need assistance/guidance. Staff will gladly help with this if requested.
There is no dedicated disabled Car Parking at the Bungee Jump site, there is however ample room for parking whereby car doors can be opened fully to allow access to a vehicle.
There are disabled toilet facilities, disabled parking bays, somewhere to eat and drink and a kids adventure playground all within the Manor House, which is a short drive from the Bungee jump site. The main manor house and associated gardens and grounds are accessible to wheelchair users.
The parkland at this venue is vast, so there are plenty of leisure walks to be enjoyed and plenty of places to "spend" an assistance dog.
There is music playing at the site, so if you are hard of hearing, please make the team aware and they will do what is necessary whilst maintaining an atmosphere for all customers.
The staff at the event will be happy to look after a guide dog whilst you take your Bungee Jump, just let a member of the team know.
The 300ft Bungee Jump Gift experience is suitable for people with the following disabilities:
- Hard of hearing/Deaf
- Restricted – Arm
- Restricted - Leg
- Visually Impaired
If your disability is not mentioned here but you’re interested in trying the 300ft Bungee Jump, please do give us a call as we may well be able to accommodate other disabilities.
