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 160ft 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 Bungee 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, it is not possible to 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 Bungee Jump Gift 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 160ft as you take the plunge! For more information about carers, please see our Questions and Answers page.
