Well worth the rush...you might as well do the country's biggest bungie while you're there! Be sure to check out the different ways to swing before you take the leap. I went upside down for an extra thrill!

Had a great time! I did a tandem jump with my husband, very nervous beforehand, never done anything like it before but the staff were great at putting you at ease with their weird & wacky humour. What a buzz!

Hi there! Check-in is 15 minutes before the trip time, and you should allow 2.5 hours for the whole trip. So if you booked the 4.30pm trip; check in will be 4.15pm and you would be back in town around 7pm. Hope this helps!
