In this blog post, i want to take you through each jump that will be completed on the Bungy World Tour. The jumps are listed in the order that i plan on completing the jumps, not in order of size! To complete them from smallest to largest would involve alot of to-ing ad fro-ing across the globe….. So here it is
Kawarau Bridge Bungy, Queenstown NZ – 43m
The first commercial bungy in the world, this is where it all started 26 years ago, so it makes sense that this is where the Bungy World Tour starts. Jumping off the 43m high Kawarau Bridge over the stunning Kawarau Gorge, makes this jump, the second smallest on the trip, but one of the best locations of all the trips. And its the first water dunk bungy of the trip! Hopefully its a matter of fourth time lucky for me! Expect a tonne of photos from here. Its going to look epic from the drone camera!
Ledge Bungy, Queenstown NZ – 47m
One of my favorite bungy jumps i have done. I completed this jump the day after the Nevis Bungy in 2014, and this was just as intense, if not more. Although the jump itself is only 47m high, the jumping platform is 400m above Queenstown and THIS is what you feel. But what a rush! On top of the Skyline Gondola, the jump is super versatile with an onsite Jump Menu you can ensure every jump gets max adrenaline. The bottom of the gondola is a short walk from the centre of town, in the perfect position for a post jump Fergburger!
Nevis Bungy, Queenstown NZ – 134m
My highest bungy to date, but by no means the highest on the trip. In fact this 134m demon is only No. 4 on the trip. From the spectacular drive out to the jump, to the jump location over the Nevis River, to the jump itself (out of a suspended partially glass bottomed hut, affectionately known as the “Sardine Tin”), this jump is an experience you have to try at least once! With a adrenaline pumping 8.5 seconds of free fall, you get to enjoy the adrenaline for a while!
Auckland Bridge Bungy, Auckland NZ – 40m
The baby of the trip at 40m, and my first ever bungy in 2011. Was so good i did it twice and it will be good to be back. Jumping over Auckland Harbour, it’s the second water dunk bungy on the trip, the only one in Auckland and will be the last one in NZ for the trip!
Normandie, France – 61m
The third and highest water touch bungy on the trip (and in the world!). Jumping off a 61m platform, built specifically for bungy on top of one of the viaducts above the river Souleuvre, the view from here looks so french it’s insane. I think i might stay on the edge just a little longer to take it all in. The drone is going to get a massive workout here. Spare battery anyone!
Sochi, Russia – 69m and 207m
I can’t WAIT for Sochi. Man, i am excited about this stop! Two sick jumps, including the 3rd highest at 207m, a whole park of adventure activities at SkyPark….and RUSSIA! Vodka shots anyone….. (not usually into shots OR vodka but when in rome..russia…SHOTS!). But this location looks amazing. And the only spot on the trip with 2 different bungys at one site. SICK!
Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon, Hunan Province, China – 260m
The warm up is done…no more messing around. This is the big league, and this is some epic shit right here. 260m! Off a bridge! A glass bottomed bridge nonetheless! AND the biggest bungy in the world. Eclipsing the current highest by 27m, when it opens early 2017, this is going to be one serious adrenaline hit. Check the article on my Facebook for details about the bridge. THIS is going to be intense. Again, drone is going to get a workout!
Macau Tower, Macau – 233m
I climbed to the top of this tower at 338m, the tallest urban tower climb in the world, in 2002, and this is a seriously high bungy! Currently the tallest bungy in the world, Macau Tower is going to be a highlight of the trip. Might even do the tower climb again!
Sentosa, Singapore – 50m
Now the big boys are out of the way, we get to have some serious fun on the last two jumps, both 50m each. The Singapore jump is set right on the beach on a purpose built bungy platform. An amazing spot, and one of two that are scheduled to open between now and the time the tour starts.
Cairns, Queensland, Australia – 50m
Back on home turf and the last jump of the trip! This will be a full day of jumps to finish off in style. The world’s first purpose built bungy platform, nestled in tropical rain in the Far North Queensland. One absolute must here, is the BMX bungy from the roof of the platform! THIS WILL BE THE FINAL JUMP OF THE TOUR! AND its water dunk number 4!!
So those are the jumps. On top of the jumps, i am also looking at doing the following:
Snowboarding in Queenstown
Ledge and Nevis Swings
Return Helicopter to Nevis
Normandie Swing and Zip
Macau Tower Climb
Sentosa Vertical Skywalk and Swing
Cairns – Scuba Diving Great Barrier Reef
Time to bounce,
