Bungee Jump from the transporter bridge!

Bungee jumping at the Transporter Bridge takes place every Sunday morning between 9am and 1.30pm. The 'jumpers ' need to book the jump and report to the Visitor Centre on the Sunday morning. They are then registered, weighed and have to sign an indemnity form, then they are fitted with a harness before being taken up to the top walkway of the bridge. Once they are on the top walkway they are weighed again and fitted with the required bungee rope for their weight. They bungee off the centre of the bridge 160 feet above the river. They are then lowered into a boat on the river and transferred back to the shore.
