If you are an adrenaline junkie and haven’t tried bungee jumping, we can’t even begin to explain to you what you are missing out on. Bungee jumping is all about the thrills of free fall. You get to dive from a structure 60m tall with an elastic cord connected to your back. Don’t be scared though. The cord will keep you from falling to the ground.
Here are some tips to make sure your first jump is epic:
1. Do your research
Find out where the best spots to bungee are located, read the reviews from people who have jumped there before and speak to the instructors.
2. Wear comfortable clothing
The clothes and shoes you wear need to be comfortable and not hinder your jump in any way.
3. Don't look down
Look up, straight ahead, to the sides... but whatever you do, don't look down. It might make you chicken out.
4. Layer up
In case the instructors don't provide a cloth, carry one to provide a protective barrier between your skin and the rope. This will prevent rope burns.
5. Stay open-minded
It's almost a given that you have heard many stories (some of them being horror stories) about bungee jumping. However, keep an open mind and experience it for yourself before making a decision.
