“Just a Spectator!!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

There is no way I would jump, but I did admire those who did and they all came up to the viewing area wanting more, and that's after being half dipped in freezing cold water! Amazing setup and the staff very professional and knowledgeable. One girl was very reluctant to jump, and the staff were obviously very patient and supportive - so were the crowd watching. It was quite an experience even though I had to stand well back on the viewing platform as I am terrified of heights. It was worth seeing.

No really..you should jump! Everyone who works there are great and if you are going to dive over the edge..this is the one to do it from.

“Great experience”
Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

Jumped off a perfectly good Kawaura bridge.
They were extremely professional and supportive and helped me feel as at ease as I could.
The Bungy centre is very cool and well run.
I've done that now, onto the marathon.

“Amazing adrenaline rush and FB pics of a lifetime!”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Did the Ledge, and it was an amazing rush. Admittedly, it was over too quickly, but the rush you get when you start run off the ledge and start to free fall is just unmatched! The people guiding you were a bit unenthusiastic for my taste, but still, they appeared careful enough that I never felt unsafe. The pictures they take are out of this world - truly amazing! What's more, it is very easy to get to as you just take the gondola up to the top and walk down a bit and you are ready to go.
