Bungee Trampolines Discover New Heights

Bungee Trampolines Discover New Heights

Trampoline jumping has literally been taken to​ new heights with the launch of​ a​ gravity-defying, adrenaline-pumping sport known as​ bungee trampoline, introduced by the world of​ extreme sports. in​ bungee trampoline, the jumper has an​ adjustable harness attached to​ the waist, connected to​ bungee ropes on​ both sides. this​ allows various types of​ somersaults and​ other airborne aerobics as​ the jumper is​ catapulted up to​ 12 to​ 14 meters in​ the air.

Bungee trampolines can be set up on​ almost any high footfall outdoor or​ indoor locations such as​ amusement parks, beaches, swimming pools, summer camps, schools, festivals, acrobatic training centers, water parks, gymnasiums, etc.

Most Bungee Trampolines are built from high quality materials such as​ aluminum and​ stainless steel and​ should fulfill certain​ safety standards and​ regulations. Anyone who weighs between 45 to​ 200 pounds can comfortably participate in​ a​ bungee trampoline jumping. Experience is​ not needed except for​ extreme stunts and​ aerobics, which should never be attempted without the supervision​ of​ a​ professional. Another advantage with bungee trampoline jumping is​ that even people with certain​ physical disabilities can take part because the harness attached to​ the waist makes it​ much safer than conventional trampolines.

A single jumping unit may have more than one trampoline which allows multiple jumpers to​ use the bungee trampoline at​ the same time. However, there are also bungee trampolines designed for​ only one person​ at​ a​ time. Most of​ the bungee trampolines used today come with a​ client control apparatus, using a​ counter and​ a​ timer which can be easily operated by a​ single person. Recommended power supply for​ bungee trampolines is​ 110 or​ 230 volts and​ 10 amperes electrical outlet.

There are several models, types, and​ designs of​ bungee trampolines. Some of​ them have been modified to​ make the jumps more exciting and​ thrilling. for​ example, Forest Maxi Bungy Trampoline, captioned “Maxi bungee trampoline fly in​ the trees” (maxi-trampoline.com) features a​ harness and​ elastic system which is​ connected to​ natural trees from 5 meters to​ 20 meters high construction. Participants (5 years and​ older, adults below 200 lbs.) can jump up to​ 20 meters and​ land​ on​ their feet in​ the middle of​ the trampoline. 230 volts or​ 110 volts is​ the average supply of​ power used by this​ bungee trampoline.

An example of​ a​ four person​ bungee trampoline:

Camp Cayuga (campcayuga.com), a​ private coed residential summer camp in​ Honesdale, Pennsylvania has introduced what it​ called the Big “Trampoline Thing", as​ a​ part of​ its extreme jumping sports program. this​ is​ the basic configuration​ of​ the bungee trampoline:

A large rig combines a​ trampoline system with a​ bungee cord system. The rig features 4 separate trampolines, so 4 people can be accommodated at​ one time. The patented Bungee Cord System includes a​ hydraulic lift that automatically readjusts the height settings on​ the rig as​ participants jump higher. With this​ safety feature, the bungee cord cannot be over-stretched while jumping, and​ catapult the jumper up to​ 24 feet in​ the air.

Bungee Trampoline jumping, like the regular bungee jumping, should be approached with caution​ because it​ can result in​ injuries like sprains, fractures, scrapes, bruises and​ cuts, or​ serious injuries to​ the head and​ neck which can cause paralysis, or​ even death. Children should always be supervised by adults, and​ inexperienced adult jumpers should seek the help of​ instructors or​ professionals.
