Highest bungee jump in the world

Conquering the Highest Bungee Jump in the World. Because I’m an Idiot.

Highest Bungy Jump in the WorldYou wouldn’t be the first person to call me an idiot. After all, I do have a track record of doing some pretty stupid stuff.

During my junior year in college I jumped out of a second story window. One time I even got naked at a strip club (yeah, I know–it’s supposed to be the other way around). I even managed to get myself kicked out of both high school and college (but I still graduated…and with honors distinction!).

And these are only the stories I’m legally allowed to tell you about.

These days, my stupidity is a little bit more premeditated. The last time I found myself jumping from high places I ended up stark naked on the edge of a bridge.

Macau SkywalkAnd though I probably would have let the girls at the counter talk me into any number of things, this time I was explicitly told that I would not be allowed to jump in the nude.

Because foreplay is important (or so I’ve been told), the staff at AJ Hackett put me on a ledge that wraps all the way around the top of the tower. For half an hour, I took on different shenanigans from the comfortable height of 764 feet in the air. My ledge buddies and I ran at full speed, entrusting that our harnesses wouldn’t snap as we flung ourselves in random directions.

We balanced on one foot, with the other foot hanging over the edge. This was actually the scariest thing I’ve ever done in my life. I don’t have a fear of heights or a fear of jumping. I have a fear of ledges. Somehow, I still managed to muster a smile.

It’s only 233 meters, guys. Come on.

Next, I was due to jump. I swapped harnesses and stepped outside onto the ledge. I was excited for this one, and I wasn’t even nervous. I had done this before. In hindsight, I realize that I probably should have been.

With much deliberation, I finally convinced the guys running the show to let me jump backwards. I told them this would be my fourth bungee jump and, eventually, they conceded. I had heard that jumping backwards is the scariest way to do it (determination: true). When jumping head-first, you can see what’s going on below you. Jumping backwards, you’re essentially entering a free-fall completely blind.

I should have waffled. I could not have anticipated the horror that I would experience. All of a sudden, I was falling…very, very fast. And I had no idea where I was or which direction I was heading (well, down, obviously, but you know what I mean). I was completely disoriented and I had no frame of reference except the top of the tower which disappeared very, very quickly.

233 meters and a few minutes later, I was lowered safely onto the big cushioned mat that lay atop the cold, hard pavement. I’m convinced that anybody who does this has got to be at least a little bit insane.

Me, though? Well, I’m just an idiot. Ask my friends–they’ll tell you.

Many thanks to AJ Hackett who graciously provided me with a media pass and complimentary activities. All opinions, as always, are my own.

Bloukrans Bungy a Proud Guinness World Record Holder for the Highest Commercial Bungee Jump in the World at 216m!
This is incorrect. The highest legal bridge jump resides in Canon City, Colorado, USA. The Go Fast! event team does a 1000+ft jump there at the Royal Gorge Bridge. A select amount of individuals who get the commercial reservation before the big day during the fall are the lucky few who get to set their own world record.
