For me, Macau is a place rich in entertainment and bright lights, especially with their numerous casinos in almost every corner of the street. If you’re like me who don’t gamble, then you’ll definitely enjoy shopping and dining around Senado Square, a large town square just a bus away from their gambling center. You can also drop by the Ruins of St. Paul’s Cathedral while you’re there. For the more daring travelers, head to Macau Tower and get ready to experience an adventure of a lifetime. That’s right, I’m talking about Macau’s famous “AJ Hackett Bungy Jump“!
To those who aren’t familiar with it, AJ Hackett Macau Tower Bungy Jump is home to the World’s Highest Bungy because it’s about 233m / 764 ft. high! They also have other activities aside from the Bungy Jump, so make sure to check out their official website. The prices are really expensive so choose the activity you feel that you’re going to enjoy the most. As for me, it’s gotta be the Bungy Jump! But to take a leap from their platform 233m above the ground, you will have to be prepared to shell out MOP3,361 or US$420.70, which includes an exclusive T-shirt, e-Certificate, AJ Hackett International membership card, F&B discounts, tower admission ticket, and of course, the Bungy Jump! That’s the standard package. As for the full package, it is worth MOP3,988 or US$499, which includes everything in the standard package plus photos, HD video and GoPro video in USB.
To make the bungy jump safe, a specially designed bungy cord, guide cables, and recovery system was developed. They will also make lots of preparations before you can take the leap, like checking your weight, asking for your health conditions, and attaching the necessary straps and equipment to your body. We arrived at the tower around 4pm and was only able to jump when it was already 7:30pm. The line was really long because it was during peak season, so don’t forget to book in advance.
So what’s going to happen is that the jumper takes a leap from the platform high up in Macau tower and then it’s a free fall down, letting gravity take the reins. The jumper will be slowing down 30 meters from the ground before rebounding back up. Don’t worry about hitting the walls of the tower, the guide cables system makes sure you do not make contact with the tower at all.
I’m really excited to share to you my free fall bungy jump experience, and the best way for me to express it is to show you the video of my jump! This was definitely the highlight of my entire trip!
I still get so hyped up every time I watch this! The feeling of standing at the edge of the platform was mind-blowing! That was actually the scariest part, not the jump itself. Feeling the cold winter wind blowing on my face, I literally heard my heart pounding while the people assisting me started counting down. It was my first bungy jump and even though it frightened me, I’m so happy I still took the plunge. I was able to see the beautiful night view of the city while they lowered me down to the ground slowly. My knees were a little wobbly when I reached the ground but I could still pretend to walk properly. LOL! Thumbs up to the ultimate free fall experience at AJ Hackett Bungy Jump!! Oh, I heard they will also be opening a branch at Singapore soon!
