Reverse Bungee in the heart of Kuta
16 Dec

“If It scares you, it might be a good thing”. 5GX Bali is bringing a new touch of Legian area with its reverse bungee that has taken the adrenaline activity to a whole new level. Designed and developed in New Zealand, this activity has been recognised as a must-do for those who have guts.

This ride is one hell of an adrenaline booster which is going to sustain for an entire lifetime, and therefore you are bound to have company in this fun ride. You will be seated and locked inside a metal ball with up to 2 people next to you, and catapulted high up into the air, slicing through the sky, bouncing and spinning wildly for a few minutes. The machine fires you 60 meters’ vertical at ludicrous speeds in just over 2 seconds, reaching up to 5G force. You will feel the wildest of excitement while being hurled in the air up and down.

The key to fully enjoy this ride is by keep laughing and screaming out loud to avoid panic attack. Give it a few seconds before you realise that there is actually nothing to be scared about. The team of 5GX Bali really makes sure the safety of the passengers. You will be locked in well to your seats using an airplane safety lap belt, and the staff will triple-check the belt. Each launch 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. Routine safety checks and maintenance are carried out daily by the team of experts. So, worry not as you are in the good hand. Set aside your inhibitions and enjoy the thrill.

The rides start in the midday around lunchtime and goes on well until pass midnight. During the night, the lights in surrounding area makes the ride very attractive. Some of the slingshot metal balls are covered in tiny lights which keep glowing in and out as you go up and down.

A few pointers you need to keep in mind is that do not take the ride on an empty stomach as it might make you nauseous. Also do not have a heavy meal since you might end throwing up. Snack light before the ride. For your comfort sake, do not wear loose clothes as you will be tumbled up and down. Pregnant women, heart patients, people with blood pressure issues should not be taking this ride. This is an extreme form of adventure sport, and utmost care needs to be taken. Last but not least, make sure to scream out loud as you will be recorded in a GoPro video.
