Colorado has a reputation for high-mountain terrain (with the highest mean elevation in the U.S.), snow and adventure, making it an obvious choice for thrill-seeking travelers. While the state is best known for its natural endowments, including 14, 000-foot peaks and raging whitewater, there are also manmade adventures. While the closures of some bungee operations, like the one at Heritage Square in Golden, have limited the bungee opportunities around the state, there are still several youth bungee operations and bungee-style swing rides in Colorado.

Royal Gorge Bridge and Park

Ironically, Colorado's most famous bungee destination is one at which traditional bungee jumping is banned throughout the year. Recognized as one of the highest suspension bridges in the world at 1, 053 feet, the Royal Gorge Bridge in Cañon City, Colorado, has host to several types of bungee jumps. Royal Gorge offers the Royal Rush Skycoaster mid-March through mid-October. The ride, near the edge of the canyon, pulls up to three riders on a bungee swing then drops them, letting them swing out over the natural wonder at speeds up to 50 mph. As for classic bungee jumping, organizers of the Go Fast Games were successful in opening the bridge for public jumping during the annual games that took place in the fall from 2003 to 2008. Other events like BASE jumping, rock climbing and BMX rounded out the adrenaline-filled weekends. In 2009, the Go Fast Games were cancelled, and as of spring 2010, no game schedule was published for 2010.

Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park

Located north of Aspen along I-70, Glenwood Canyon is a popular destination for hikers, rafters and other outdoor adventurers. Those looking for a bungee experience can head to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. The park is home to the Swing Shot, which provides an experience similar to that of bungee. Like the canyon swings of New Zealand (and the Royal Gorge Skycoaster), the Glenwood Caverns' swing lets you sail out 1, 300 feet over the Colorado River, reaching speeds up to 50 mph. While the Swing Shot only accepts riders over 4 feet tall, the Adventure Park also offers trampoline bungee for children. On the bungee trampoline, children are strapped to two bungee cords, allowing them to jump higher and add tricks to their routine. Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park 51000 Two Rivers Plaza Rd. Glenwood Springs, CO 81601 970-945-4228 glenwoodcaverns.com

Bungee for Children

Many of the state's famous ski resorts double as summer vacation destinations and offer bungee variations for kids. While the base of Steamboat ski resort is recognized for its sea of skiers and snowboarders, in the summer, its most recognizable feature is the slingshot bungee children. Part of Steamboat's Gondola Square Adventure Zone, the Slingshot Bungee Jump is a trampoline bungee ride offered to children 3 and over. Vail, Breckenridge and Copper Mountain offer similar bungee rides for kids. Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation 2305 Mt. Werner Circle Steamboat, CO 80487 970-879-6111 steamboat.com
