Why live on the edge when you can jump off?
Bungee, or Bungy Jumping is very high on adrenaline junkies lists. Jumps can be from bridges and dams, to moving objects such as helicopters and hot air balloons. Whichever you choose to jump off the feeling is always euphoric.

The Nevis Highwire bungee jump is a spectacular jump, which is from a cabin. It's not the most sturdy starting point like a bridge and a dam, meaning that your nerves as you get into the cable car and dangle above the Nevis River can be somewhat increased.
Where: Queenstown, New Zealand
Height: 134 Metres

Bungee jumping had always seemed like a super exciting thing to do, and so finding the best bungee jumps in the world is a good way to procrastinate.
Now if you have watched the film Goldeneye, which is often seen as one of the best films in a certain spy series you will remember a very famous opening scene where a little plane flies into a valley, with a huge concrete dam taking up the vast majority of the cinema screen. We then see James Bond (well his stunt double Wayne Michaels) jump off the dam in a stunt which was so impressive it was voted 'The Best Movie Stunt of All Time' in 2002.
Despite there being no firm law in place, the general age permitted is 18.
If it wasn't we wouldn't recommend it! Of course you should be warey of jumping if you have any serious heart conditions or issues with your joints such as chronic back or neck pain, but for most healthy adults it's completely safe.
The shorter the wait the better, if you here a countdown... go on 1! Wear comfortable clothes so you're not filled with adrenaline and being wedgied at the same time. And take a mate, it's good to have someone who can tell other just how terrified your face was before you leapt.
