1. Go with a good quality company.

First things first - SAFETY. You need to make sure you are going with a company that has high safety procedures in place. AJ Hackett not only invented the sport, but has taken all levels of safety to a whole new level. You need to check whether the company use 2 points to attach the Bungy cord to each customer? Have they been operating for long? Do they abide by the AU/NZ 5848 Bungy Jumping Regulation?

 

2. Believe in Yourself

One of the greatest challenges facing a first time Bungy Jumper is getting their minds around the fact they are about to jump off a perfectly good tower. It is not a natural thing to do, and there will be nerves.....1st time Jumpers need to embrace this feeling, have confidence in themselves, and know that they CAN do this, the only thing standing in their way - is themselves.

 

3. Don't believe the Myths

I am sure you have heard them all before, your eyes might fall out of your head or your back might snap - these are all Urban Myths. In our opinion Bungy myths are normally created by those too scared to take the challenge & trying to find a easy way out!

4. Have a sense of Adventure

This is a once in a lifetime experience. Embrace the challenge and face the fear! No regrets!

 

5. Bungy Jump with a friend

No better way to experience Bungy than with a mate. You'll be friend for life after completing a Tandem Bungy together! 

 

6. Trust the Jump Master

Jump Masters have completed in-depth and professional training to become qualified. Jump on their countdown 5-4-3-2-1-BUNGY! Don't hesitate - the more you think about it the worse the fear becomes. JUST JUMP!

7. Choose your surroundings carefully

Bungy Jumping is about your TOTAL experience, not just the leap, you want to be in a comfortable and picturesque environment so ALL your senses get the rush - not just being in a crane over a carpark. Our site in Cairns, Queensland is about as beautiful as you can get!

 

8. What to wear

Anything your comfortable in; Tshirts, singlets, shorts, long pants it doesn't matter! Probably wouldn't suggest wearing a skirt, dress or high heels for the ladies. You can Bungy Jump bare foot, but if you prefer to jump with shoes on, make sure they are enclosed and secure on your feet.
