What is bungee jumping in the first place ?

Bungee jumping is an unusual sport of jumping off a very high structure with a long elastic rope tied to your feet. The rope pulls you back just before you hit an inflated airbag. The thrill of just jumping off the high tower is a great experience. On the other hand, it’s an exhilarating activity that is perfect for adrenaline junkies. Folks who are used to indoor activites such as texas hold em or checkers are better off trying other activities or watching bungee jumpers strut their stuff.
