A leap of faith that will delight the thrill seeker in you. The Jungle Bungy Jump is a 50-metre high jump above a jungle lagoon and is a safe yet thrilling adventure, especially for first time jumpers.
What’s So Awesome About It
Set above a jungle lagoon, the Jungle Bungy Jump in Phuket promises an unforgettable experience for those who are ready to take a plunge from a considerable height. The height is about the same as a 15-storey building, so it is not too scary for a novice jumper. You have the option of getting partially dipped into the lake water while doing so. You can also ask about other types of jumps you can do depending upon your weight. The safety measures at the Jungle Bungy Jump are at par with other international standards and the staff is extremely well trained and professional.
What’s The Catch
If you want to record your bungee experience on video or stills, you need to pay extra. While there are multiple options available, you will even be asked to pay extra if you want to record on your own GoPro. If you get nervous before the jump and ask the staff to give you a push, they charge an extra THB 100.
Things To Keep In Mind
An extreme activity like this one is not recommended for people who suffer from a serious medical condition like neurological disorders, epilepsy, heart conditions, high blood pressure, recent fractures, neck or back injuries, asthma or osteoporosis. Also, it is suggested that you don’t eat just before you go for your jump.
Where You Can Book It From
You can directly book your jump from the website www.phuketbungy.com. Here you even have the option of booking transfers to and from the jump site from Patong or Phuket town. You can also book at the site itself, which is about 20 minutes drive from Patong beach. There is usually no or limited wait line for the jump.
If you are a first-timer, you can get the most of your experience by booking two jumps. You are bound to enjoy the second one more after the first jump where you don’t know what to expect.
