The activity place itself provides the safety gears, and the staff makes sure you are all decked up and are prepared for the big leap. Some major and pertinent safety gears involved are-
  • The harness - this is the safety jacket you will be made to wear via which you will be attached to the bungee cord.
  • The bungee cord - this is the cord that will connect to your harness and to the guiding cables to ensure a smooth and safe experience by having an impeccable rebound system. 

Precaution and Safety Tips

  • If you are sick or not well, avoid bungee jumping in Hong Kong because your body may not be ready or receptive to the quick movement and slight jerk that it involves.
  • Don't overeat before the jump and try to have a light meal instead. This will help in ensuring that you don't feel dizzy. Also, avoid bungee jumping on an empty stomach because there is a small chance you'll faint due to that.
  • It is best to have a medical checkup beforehand and know that you are fit for the activity in general if you have a spinal issue or any such medical condition, it is better to ask your doctor about it.

The Inception of the Activity at Macau Tower

Macau Tower is an important and iconic landmark of the city. It was designed by a well-known architect from New Zealand, Gordon Moller. It is a member of the World Federation of Great Towers. Being an incredibly charming building, it attracts over a million tourists every year. The inception of this activity of bungee jumping here can be called a revolution in the adventure sport where AJ Hackett, the founder, gives credit to the 2nd generation bungee cord that was designed in a way that will allow people to jump from any building!

This is a sphere-shaped cord that is wider at the top and narrower at the bottom which enables weight to be spread out evenly across the length of the cord when jumping from such a great height. As you dive from 233 meters above the ground level, you will experience the ultimate free-fall, then you'll slow down at 30 meters away from the ground and be rebounded back.

Now that you have a fair idea of one of the world's best bungee jumping experiences and where to find it, what are you waiting for? Pack your gears and go bungee jumping in Hong Kong!
