Daredevils will want to experience the biggest rush of adrenalin with the Bungee Rocket. How does a skyward ejection: zero to 50 metres in 1.3 seconds, sound to you? The blood rushes to your feet then speeds back to your face as you and a partner are thrown 50 meters high, then drop back in free-fall! Then you roll round and round while bungeeing up and down. Game? For smaller daredevils there is the exciting trampoline, where they can flip and fly (whilst harnessed, or course!). Call for more details.
