Highest Bungee Jump in the World
People have always sought for adventures in different ways. While ones are traveling from one country to another, other adventurists find the fulfillment of life in the adrenaline, which fills up the body, standing hundreds of meters above the ground before a great jump. Some call these people crazy but some fix up higher and higher challenges to them. So, let’s see what the 3 highest bungee jumps in the world are.
3 highest bungee jumps in the world
The well-earned title of the third highest bungee jump in the world spot belongs to 220 meters high Verzasca Dam in Switzerland. The jumps are called 007 Bungy since the site can be seen in the opening scene of movie very well-known to everyone – James Bond – Golden Eye. The 007 Bungy costs from CHF 195 to CHF 255 (~ $210 to $243), but the jumper is offered to choose from four different jumps: 007 Ultimo (only for experienced jumpers), 007 Night Jump (offers unforgettable jump with full moon experience during the night-time), 007 Backwards, which can be taken as the second jump after the “casual” one and, of course, the famous 007 Classic Jump.
In order to try the second highest bungee jump in the world you must leave for China, precisely – to the Macau Tower. The tower reaches the height of 233 meters and hence a jump from such an imposing altitude is something that not everyone has a nerve for. The free fall which can be enjoyed stepping over the edge of the tower (which, by the way, provides the jumper with unbelievably magnificent scenery) can last up to six seconds. Standard bungee jump from the Macau Tower costs $ 319 but you can also book Full Package Bungee Jump for $409, which includes not only a jump, but also official T-shirt, Certificate & Membership card plus a video and photos of the jump.
Believe it or not but the highest bungee jump can be enjoyed from the extreme height of 321 meters. If you want to give it a try, you must visit the Royal Gorge Bridge in the State of Colorado, USA. However, you must keep in mind that the jumps from this spot are allowed more seldom than in the places mentioned above. Just a few people have had a chance to accept this great challenge. For the first time this opportunity was available in 2005 during the Royal Gorge Go Fast Games, next time it happened in 2007, so, it is worth waiting for the forthcoming time, when the most adventurous jumpers will be welcomed to get the thrill there.
Bungee jumping is a great way to overcome some certain fears and get the feeling that cannot be sensed in everyday life, but if you are aiming higher than average, you most certainly have to try some of the highest bungee jumps mentioned above and wait for the next records to be set in the future.
