"Ledge Jump - Urban jump Queenstown" Bungy Jumping Tip by dmirebella

Bungy Jumping, Queenstown: 27 reviews and 60 photos

  Say hello ..just before the jump
by dmirebella

The final of my 3 (supposedly) bungee jumps - decided to do it close to dusk and boy - personally - despite Nevis being the higher jump -this was the scary one for me .. but then again .. that does not stop me from wanting to do more jumps might I add.

Now - any bungee jumper knows the norm is having the cords attached to the feet where a tiny jump off is all that suffices for a rush - not the ledge jump ... here - ones lifeline is attached to the waist and with a small prayer and plenty of guts - you hurl yourself off the ledge and into the unknown (check out my intro page for my ledge jump pic ;-))

Oh - did I mention that the jump is 400 m above Queenstown?
p/s: I did this jump twice

Address: cnr of Camp and Shotover St
Directions: Take the gondola to the peak and view other jumpers or do one of your own.
