Jump off the Rock

At sixty-one metres high, Great Canadian Bungee’s “The Rock” is North America’s highest bungee jump. Overlooking a spring-fed lagoon in Wakefield, Quebec the rebound alone is higher than any other jump on the continent. Drench yourself in adrenalin by requesting a water dip. You can choose to be connected by your ankles or waist, not that it will make a difference when you’re plummeting towards the water. Alright now: “Three, Two, One…”

Note from Robin : I've been fortunate enough to have bungee jumped on three continents, and it still scares the living crap out of me. The trick is to commit to the idea, get on the platform and take the leap. Think about it too long and your brain will come up with a Phd thesis about why you should not, in any way, jump. Contrary to rumours, bungee jumping is entirely safe, especially with a professional outfit like Great Canadian Bungee. If you're feeling brave, ask for the optional water dip. No cameras are allowed, and just in case you were wondering, you can't jump naked.
