Bungy-jumping is certainly not for the faint of heart. Have you done it or will you ever try it? Like other sports that get your heart racing and adrenaline pumping, bungy-jumping can also be considered a life-time experience, one that a person most likely will not experience it a second or a third time. Just my guess. I know this sport is certainly not for me.
However, for adrenaline junkies or if you would like to at least try it once, very soon, Malaysia will have its very own permanent bungy-jump attraction. This new attraction will be introduced at Sunway Lagoon. Talks are underway between Sunway Lagoon and AJ Hackett International Group and this sport is expected to be available between three to six months time.
Overseas, each jump can set you back US100 (approx RM350). However, spokesperson of Sunway Lagoon has assured that the price will be affordable to the public. Eligibility is for those above 10 years of age.
Update: Mar 14, 2011
THE first permanent bungy jumping site is now open at the Sunway Lagoon’s Extreme Park’s suspension bridge.
Thrill-seekers will be free-falling 22m above the water, a height equivalent to a nine-storey building.
Jumpers will have the option of doing either individual bungy jump or the water-touch which allows the jumper’s head to touch the water before the bungy cord pulls the jumper upwards.
You would have to be at least 10 years of age in order to participate and have to be of a minimum weight of 35kg or maximum of up to 285kg.
Each jump is priced at RM100 (non-MyKad holder) and RM50 (MyKad holder). Those who are planning to go on a complete thrill seeking experience can enjoy both the existing G-Force X Reverse Bungy and the Bungy Jump with a combo ticket priced at RM150 (non-MyKad holder) and RM70 (MyKad holder).
All successful jumpers would receive a Bungy Jump Certificate from Bungy Malaysia.
