How Much Does Bungee Jumping Cost?

post Post    

As its name implies, bungee jumping consists of leaping from a tall structure while harnessed to an elastic band. Leaps are taken from trees[1] , rocks, bridges, cranes and portable setups. No experience or training is typically necessary.

Typical costs:

  • Individual bungee jumping costs about $30 -$400 per jump, depending on location and height. Typically, the higher the jump, the higher the cost. Bridges are considered the easiest for beginners and no "hiking in" is necessary. Rocks are the most difficult as the jumper first has to scale the height of the rock. For example, bungee jumping from a 150-foot tree or bridge is priced about $100, while jumping from a 1,200-foot rock -- which requires rappel training -- will cost about $400. The jumper can be harnessed in one of several different positions, from full body to ankle, depending on falling preference -- feet first in the "elevator drop" or diving into a Superman fly[2] . A collared shirt is recommended to avoid "harness hickey," which occurs when the shoulder harnesses rubs against the skin.
  • Jumping may be done in singles, pairs or at some locations triples. Tandem jumps cost about $380 and allow two people to make the leap together, which includes a $100 couple rigging fee.
  • Night jumps are available through several companies and cost about $250.
  • Jumpmaster training costs about $1,500 and requires a three-day training course. Candidates receive a certificate of completion and a letter of recommendation based on the instructor's evaluation of the student.

What should be included:
  • A short introduction to the equipment and how it works will be followed with coaching on the best body position[3] to use in the initial fall based on type of harness chosen. All necessary bungee equipment including the harness, cloth-covered elastic band, goggles and helmet will be provided. The jumper free falls the length of the bungee cord, and then bounces back repeatedly until body weight ultimately ends movement.
  • A crew on top will throw a rope and haul the person back to the starting point. In some rock bungee setups, the jumper rappels to the bottom.
Additional costs:
  • Photos or videos of the jump are often available for sale. Plan to pay about $20-$40 for a CD of about 50 photos.
  • Transportation to the jump sites is not included. Several bungee jump points are remote and require hiking in.
  • Bungee gear typically costs $1,000-$2,500, depending on length and weight requirements, type of cover -- for use over earth or water -- harness, helmet and pulleys.
Discounts:
  • Purchasing multiple jumps for the same person on the same day typically reduces the per jump cost by $10-$75, depending on location and number of jumps.
  • Military, police, fire and paramedic discounts are available at several locations and saves about $10-$20 per person, per jump.
  • Reserving a group of six or more could save the full cost of one jumper or 10%-15% off the entire group.

  • Check independent company's government certification[5] , typically issued by the state's commerce department.
  • BungeeZone.com maintains a list of bungee jumping locations[6] by state.
