Bungy - Kawarau Bridge Bungy - 43m The Original


Latest Questions about Bungy - Kawarau Bridge Bungy - 43m The Original

Hi, Me and 12y.o. son would like to do tandem jump with water touch. My weight is about 50kg, but he's a bit lighter then 35kg. Can we still go tandem?


Unfortunately the individual minimum weight requirement of 35kg is still the same for tandem bungy jumps. Its has to do with the way a person lighter than 35kg responds to the forces associated with the heavy bungy cord etc. If he is 35kg or over then no worries but if he's lighter then he wont be able to jump at this stage I'm sorry. If you're up for a bigger challenge then you could do the Shotover Canyon Swing tandem which is 109 metres or the Nevis Swing as a tandem. Out of these two swings the Canyon Swing is the most like a bungy, in fact you really wouldn't know the difference as you are still able to jump off, where as the Nevis Swing is more of a passive option with a jump master releasing you so no leap of faith required and thus not quite as thrilling.
