Love it! The bridge. Jul 26, 2009
This was an awesome experience! There's the option of getting dipped in the river. I didn't do that, but I wish I would have! If you take the jump, get dipped.

If you're not into bungy jumping, it's still beautiful to do here and just watch the others jump. After all, it was the first place in the world for bungy jumping. It's a historical site!

The jump was great. It wasn't nearly as high as some of the other jumps you can do in the area, but it was still fun, and if it's your first jump, it's probably best to start here. It's very safe. A little scary when you go out over the edge. They video tape you and you can keep it. You can also get photos. Once you get to the bottom, a rafting boat picks you up and drops you off on land. You then have to climb up a hundred stairs. That part sucked because I was a little disoriented from spinning during the jump.

Great experience!

Exilerating!!!!! Nov 07, 2007
The site at the Kawarau Bridge is the first commercial Bungy jumping site started by A J Hackett.

This one is a 43 metre jump.

The jump is not for the faint hearted. The first scary thing is that they use an old bathroom towel to wrap around your ankles and then tie the cord around that! No proper shackles!

There are different things that you can choose to do. ie, not touch water, just touch water, head in water. Or backwards, forwards or even tandem.

When you finally do the jump, you dangle over the river and someone in a raft/dinghy hauls you in. Not very elegant.

You then lie there while they untie you. The cord is hauled back up and the raft takes you to the edge where you are left to walk back up to the top.

Of course you can also buy a dvd and photos of your jump and you get a tshirt to say you have done the jump.

There are other jumps in the area too.
