Has anyone here ever Bungee Jumped?

It's something I've thought of doing for quite a while but haven't quite gotten the courage to do just yet.

I rock climb and have even gone parachuting once so it's not like I'm terribly afraid of heights but stepping off that tower would definitely take some will power. I'm also a bit concerned about potential for injury. I always thought that tales of damage to your eyes, etc. was more urban legend but this site claims there really is potential for damage.

So, I'm curious. Has anyone here done it? Did there seem to be much stress on your back or eyes or anything else?

If I were to do it, this would be my first choice of a place to do it at.

I've never really been interested, although I do wonder how they get you up after you run out of spring. They must have to haul you up like cargo. Don't think I'd like that part.

Often, they just lower you to the ground, (or a boat as the case in the video), where they untie you.

Another option...

Do try doing highfalls at your local Stunt School.

Even "scarier" and just as much fun.

I've been doing it since attending The Australian Stunt Academy a few months back. Smile
