Bungee Jumping: Everything You Need To Know

Looking for a thrilling adventure? Discover bungee jumping with Funbooker! We offer the most comprehensive range on the market, and we've selected the best bungee jumping spots in France just for you. This is an ideal activity to offer as a gift for your thrill-seeking friends and family!

What is bungee jumping?

Bungee jumping is an age-old extreme sport from Vanuatu, invented by AJ Hackett. It consists of throwing yourself into the void from the top of a high platform with your feet attached to a long rubber band. The platform is usually found on a bridge or viaduct, but it can also be a set up on a crane or a springboard.

Different types of bungee jumping

There are different types of bungee jumping, so you can choose the one that you’d like to try the most::

  • The classic solo jump: the most common in France, with your feet attached to the bungee.
  • Tandem bungee jumping: two people jump together! Ideal for a stag or hen do!
  • The water touch: skim the water with your hands or your head in this thrilling jump over a river or a gorge! Thrills guaranteed.
  • The pendulum jump: here you do a horizontal movement rather than a vertical one! Like a giant swing!

How it works

Once you're on the platform, the teams on site will make sure you don't exceed the maximum authorised weight. Then you’ll be attached to the bungee and given a briefing on the correct jumping technique. Then comes the moment you've been waiting for: you step onto the platform, look straight ahead and... jump!

After a free fall and a few bounces, you'll be back on solid ground, in the middle of a full adrenaline rush. If you'd like to keep a memorable souvenir, opt for the photo or video option, with a copy made available afterwards on a USB key!

For the more adventurous among you, you can also try out some jumping variations, including the blindfolded jump or the upside-down jump!

Safety rules for a 100% safe jump

The sport is governed by numerous safety rules to avoid any accidents. Bungee jumping centres check and change their equipment regularly. Equipment must comply with AFNOR standards in order to obtain authorisation for the jumping season. Most accidents are not due to faulty equipment, but to failure to follow safety instructions. It is essential to listen carefully to the instructors on site, who will tell you when to jump and what to do.
