Head to Manchester and experience the bungee catapult - this incredibly thrilling experience puts a new slant on the traditional bungee jump and is a must for any adrenaline junkie. Rather than jumping towards earth from a great height, the bungee cord is attached from the ground, launching you towards the sky (at heights of over 100 feet) with incredible pace. Begin by being weighed and fitted with a harness before stepping onto the launch pad to get ready for take-off. Following some final safety checks, the jumpmaster pulls the rip cord to deliver a wild ride you're unlikely to forget!
Weekend dates approximately once a month throughout the year, subject to availability.
Min age 14. Under 16's need a parent/guardian's signature. Max weight is 120kg (18.9st), waist size between 40cm - 125cm. Over 50's must produce a doc's certificate. MUST be in good health and inform of any medical conditions beforehand.
High winds or heavy rain might prevent your jump going ahead. If in doubt, call the venue to check before you leave.
After registering, a bungee time slot is allocated and the jump usually takes place within an hour. Safety checks, briefing and harnessing take around three minutes and the jump itself lasts just a few heart stopping seconds.
