8 Bungee Jumping Spots in FL You'll Love Leaping From!
Bungee jumping just might be an adrenaline junkie’s dream pastime activity – and one of the most hair-raising things to do in Orlando. Taking the ultimate plunge usually involves leaping from a great height while wearing a harness attached to a long elastic cord. The thrill derives from the sensation that one is free-falling, but once the bungee cord stretches out entirely, you rebound and have a chance to catch your breath and enjoy the moment.
Bungee Jumping Florida
The first bungee jump in modern history was performed by members of the Oxford University Dangerous Sports Club in the late 1970s. Since then, bungee jumping has risen to new heights, becoming a popular (and safe) activity all around the world. If jumping off a bridge, cliff, or skyscraper seems more like a death wish than a hobby, fear not – there are several variations of bungee jumping that make it a family-friendly activity that everyone can enjoy.
