WORLD'S BIGGEST MOBILE BUNGEE SLINGSHOT!
We are the only UK operator offering the 55m bungee slingshot - the tallest mobile Reverse Bungee in the world! Now in our 23rd year, we are also by far the most experienced and trusted. We pride ourselves on being the absolute best when it comes to operation, safety and presentation.
WHAT IS THE BUNGEE SLINGSHOT?
Sometimes referred to as the “Reverse Bungee”, “Bungee Catapult” or “Bungee Rocket”, The Bungee Slingshot is a truly breathtaking experience where two brave riders are catapulted high up into the air at totally ludicrous speeds, spinning and bouncing as they go!
It’s a fully mobile attraction available for hire at a wide variety of events. The attraction is ideal for music festivals, corporate events, city centres, sports events, marketing activations and private functions.
HOW IT WORKS
The passenger ball is held firmly in place by a very strong electro-magnet. Two winches that are positioned on either side then stretch the rubber cords up to the tops of the towers. Once they reach the top, the magnet is released and the ball is catapulted 182 feet in the air! The gondola is free spinning, so as well as experiencing acceleration of up to 4.8g, riders also turn over and over!
We are able to capture the live footage of each ride for spectators to watch thanks to the camera fitted inside the gondola. This footage is also available to purchase as a souvenir to prove your bravery to family and friends!
Passengers are first secured by a lap belt. A padded safety bar then comes down over their shoulders and locks into position. A further belt is then secured from the frame to the over-shoulder safety restraint.
Each pair of bungee cords have a strict life span. Each jump is recorded by computer, which tells the operator when the bungee cords are due to be replaced to ensure the elastic is strong and does not become too worn. In the unlikely event that a bungee cord should fail, there is an additional safety rope coiled within the elastics to prevent the gondola from falling.
Safety checks and maintenance are carried out daily before each operating session. ADIPS* accredited engineers carry out an annual safety inspection and non-destructive testing (NDT) before the attraction is passed as safe to operate. Copies of these safety certificates are available to clients upon request.
