Sound to Sound fact 10: Nevis bungy

AJ Hackett’s Nevis bungy jump is New Zealand’s highest and one of the highest bungy jumps in the world. Dare devils jump from a small cart suspended on high wire above the Nevis River.

To access the Queenstown jump location, people are taken on a 4-wheel adventure with the famed bungy company. Consider this slight bit of adventure preparation for a 134m/440ft jump, an 8.5-second free fall.
