Not that I am the least interested in having a heart attack 200 meters up in the air and PAYING FOR IT but there is now an even higher bungee jump for adrenaline seekers to try. It is the Macau Tower in China with an outstanding distance of 233m.

Commercial bungee jumping started around 1986 by AJ Hackett who continues to operate over 10 different bungee destinations worldwide including the Macau Tower.

The other top two destinations for those with a death wish are the Bloukrans River Bridge in South Africa (216m)

and Verzansca Dam located in Switzerland (220m)

There have been even higher records of jumps from helicoptors and balloons with around 9000 feet in distance but I’m not including them in the rundown since they are not open to the public.

So anyone up for it? 😉
