AJ Hackett Bungy Jump

AJ Hackett Bungy Jump - Dec. 17, 2011
Before anyone goes crazy that we bungy jumped, we didn't, we went on the Minjin Jungle Swing instead .  This is a multi-person swing where you fall from 45 meters in height down to 1 meter in 3.5 seconds, reaching speeds of up to 120 km/h!  You lay horizontally and pull the self-release to start your swing.  Not quite bungy jumping, but an adrenelain rush the same!

I want to do this...

I can jump down there...

Dad already jumped & is having a drink, LOL!
Brody & Scott went first, yes even Scott went.  Then the girls went, with me in the middle.  Hailey had to be checked out to be sure she would be able to join us, good thing she was tall enough.  She was very disappointed she couldn't bungy jump though.  Brody was ready to bungy jump, but he would have been doing it alone.  So he decided to do the swing instead as we were all able to do that.  We did walk to the top of the platform on the 50 m tower.  It was a long way up, around 250 steps up and a long way down.
We're not letting go!!

We soared over the World Heritage listed Rainforest, over looking the Great Barrier Reef.   What a mind blowing experience and total rush!
