Bungee Jumping, Indoor And Outdoor

Updated on March 8, 2018

Bungee jumping: one of the world’s most thrilling sporting activities. It’s a sport of jumping from a very high place for about more than 100 feet high. This is the sport that is not advised for weak hearted people.

It is such a sport that many people decide to try it out yet most of them back out just a moment before jumping off the place. This is thought to be a nightmare by many people as it’s not an easy job to jump from such a high place and see gravity force working against you.

It’s a free fall from such a height. But there’s one thing: if you succeed in overcoming that first feeling of fear and you jump, you taste such a nice experience, a physically exhilarating situation.

And once done mean you will have a craving for doing it again and again. Bungee jumping is done both on in door and outdoor platforms. The basic idea to go at both places is same. Firstly a strong and very stretchable rope is tied around the ankle of the jumper.

The jumper will than jump off the jumping point. Once the rope has reached its maximum level of stretchiness, he will be bounced back up. This will keep on going until the jumper stops bouncing and find himself hung in mid air.

This up and down bouncing some times causes nauseating feeling but yet the thrill and exhilaration you feel during it is valuable.
