If adventure is the name of the game, there is
nothing more adventurous than getting a high from falling from a
height. Bungee can be classified in the category of sports, which,
to put simply, is the name of courage under fire. Falling from a
height of around 120 to 700 feet and bunging up and down is only
for those who have no love lost for their life! However, on a realistic
plane, there is only an iota of risk involved in this game as most
of the organizations that hold such events maintain high quality
of professionalism. And if you won't die of fear, you would be okay
There are great debates among the bungee jumpers as to the origin
of the game. Some of them say that bungee jumping started with the
people of Vanatu in the Pacific who used to throw themselves down
from the towers with their ankle tied with vines. The Oxford University
Dangerous Sports Club took inspiration from this ritual and started
few experimental jumps in the 1970s. A. J. Hacket (owner of the
bungee jumping company by the same name) saw the video of these
jumps and thought of developing it as an adventure sports. He tested
the latex rubber cords in the extreme conditions and jumped first
at Tinges, France and a new game was born.
