Bungee jumping is an extreme sport in which people jump from the higher ground such as a bridge with an elastic rope tied to their ankles to stop them from hitting the ground. The rope is designed to stretch, not break. When the rope has stretched all the way, the jumper bounces back up. When you jump they wear safety equipment like helmets and a harness. Based on the height, and also the difficulty of the jump, each bungee operation would have different minimum requirements.
The minimum and maximum age are 12 to 14 years (there is no maximum age – as long as you’re fit and healthy!); The minimum and maximum weight is 35 and 110 kg.
