UK Bungee ClubThe National Diving & Activity Center have teamed up with UK Bungee to provide this iconic Bungee experience. As you are raised up to the top of a 300ft crane over a 100ft quarry you will realise the magnitude of what you are about to undertake. This is a truly unique jump falling 400ft disappearing into a quarry.

When you arrive at the bungee jump location you will register and complete a membership form. You will then be weighed and allocated the appropriate jump chord before entering the jump site. Here you will be harnessed by UK Bungee’s professional jump crew where a number of double checks take place of your weight, jump chord selection and waist harness. Once in the hot seat with your ankle harnesses fitted you will be passed to the jumpmaster who will double check everything again before taking you up in the jump cage and talking you through your jump.Bungee Jump over water in NDAC Quarry

Once at the top you will hear the famous countdown “3, 2, 1, bungee” and then……..it’s up to you!

Duration: You should arrive about 20mins prior to your jump time and allow around two hours from arrival to complete the experience.
