With everything from Go-Karts and ATV rides to Zip lining high above the treetops, the choices are endless for adrenaline seeking tourist. While most people choose a nice quiet holiday by the beach there are those who like to push their limits to the max while experiencing all that Phuket has to offer. For those who really want to test their limits we recommend trying Jungle Bungy Jump. The ultimate in thrill seeking adventures on the island this experience will surely separate the mice from the men.
Established in 1992 this New Zealand/Australian owned and operated bungee business is fully licensed, insured and runs strictly to New Zealand Bungy Standards. Located only twenty minutes from Patong (close to the Patong Go-Kart Speedway) and nestled in thick lush jungles of Kathu, Jungle Bungy Jump offers tourists an exhilarating and memorable experience while visiting Thailand. Perched above a serene and tranquil lagoon, the bungee platform sits at an impressive 50 meters (165 feet) with a spectacular bird eyes view of the surrounding forests and greenery.
With several options to fit everyone’s comfort level, Jungle Bungy Jump lets you choose which bungee experience is right for you, whether it’s a solo, tandem, water or catapult bungee jump. With the solo jump you start on the 50 meter platform with your ankles bound and dive head first towards the glistening lagoon below, while the water jump is the same principal except jumpers get to choose whether or not they dip into the water below. The tandem jump is similar to the solo except two of you are bound together sharing the intense moment you hurl yourself towards the lake. Finally, the catapult is for those who are a little more reserved about leaping off the edge of a platform, instead you start on the ground and are catapulted up high into the air. All jumpers will receive a “Certificate of Courage” once they have completed their bungee.
While everyone is welcome to try this wonderfully thrilling activity, some restrictions do apply. You must weigh a minimum of 35 kilograms and must not be over 235 kilograms in order to do any of the four bungees. The maximum weight to do the catapult bungee is 82 kilograms. While Jungle Bungy Jump does welcome walk-in patrons, they do suggest to book online at their website to ensure spaces are free for your desired day. For those who wish to sit out this unique experience there is a viewing platform as well as a refreshment stand. Photos and videos of jumpers are available to purchase.
