How Does the Slingshot Ride Work?

The two telescopic gantry towers are mounted on a platform with electro-magnetic latch and feed those two elastic ropes down to the two-person passenger car which is an open ball made of tubular steel. When the operator turns on the magnetic latch, the passenger car with passengers strapped in is magnetized down to the platform, and the elastic ropes attached to the passenger car are stretched under the circumstances. When the magnetic latch is turned off, the passenger car is catapulted vertically with a g-force to an altitude of between 50 and 80 meters. The passenger car is catapulted in a fast speed to the highest point because the magnetism is removed instantly. While the bungee ball is thrown up into the air, the ball itself rotates between the two ropes. Therefore, the passengers can experience the complex feeling of overweight, weightlessness, chaos, and disorientation. After the ropes are relaxed, the passengers are lowered back to the platform.

How Does Bungee Jumping Work?

how a bungee jump works

When you bungee jump you not only put your life in the hands of the operators and equipment, but also the laws of physics. If you’re about to embark on your first bungee jump it’s only natural that you want to know how it all works.

It’s one of the most un-natural things you could ever wish to do. After all, you wouldn’t jump off a crane or bridge normally and your body and mind will do everything it can to dissuade you from doing it.

Handy Hint: If you are struggling with mentally preparing yourself for a bungee jump, read this guide for beginners with fear and anxiety.

In this guide I am not going to get into too much scientific detail on the physics of bungee jumping, but instead try to explain how it works in an easy to understand overview. I hope it will help you feel more comfortable about jumping for the first time. Here’s an infographic from the How It Works magazine if you want a quick visual explanation of how a bungee jump works.

How bungee jumping works

There are four main components you need to worry about; your weight, the cord, the harness, and then the jump itself. Here’s how they all combine to let you bungee jump safely.

1. Your weight

You will be weighed by the bungee operator, sometimes even twice. The reason for doing so is to let them calculate how much bungee cord they will need and double check you’re good to go.

Bungee cords are tested daily to a maximum weight limit. Because of that, it’s unlikely they will swap out a cord for you, as most people will jump from the same cord.

Handy Hint: I published a study to find out what the minimum and maximum weight limits are at the world’s most popular bungee jumping locations. You can read that in my guide to weight restrictions.

2. Bungee cord

Bungee cords are made from military grade rubber and fabrics. You can read more about how they are made further down the page, but simplistically it’s an elasticated cord.

It is tested to make sure that it cannot reach the floor when fully stretched at the maximum weight allowable.

The bungee cord will be securely attached to the jump platform using specialist equipment very similar to what’s used in the mountaineering world.

3. Harness

The bungee cord will then be connected to you using harnesses. Most commercial operators will use two harnesses; one attached to the ankle, and one to the body.

This means you have the security of having a back-up harness.

preparing for a bungee jump

Breath calmly, don’t look down, and fix your eyes on something other than the drop.

You now in the pre-jump phase and ready to go. At this point you have high gravitational potential energy… in other words, you will fall like a stone once you step off!

4. The jump

The operators will then connect your harnesses to the bungee cord. They will usually perform some final checks to ensure that the cord is the correct length based on your weight. Checks will also be made of the ankle and body harnesses.

As you step off the jump platform, you enter free fall. You will accelerate towards the ground at 9.8m/s2, with the velocity building…

Once the bungee cord is fully stretched you will start to slow due to the tension and will then start to recoil back up. You will bounce on the cord until all the tension has gone and the air resistance has brought you to a stop.

How does a bungee cord work?

As you jump from the platform you will be in immediate free-fall as gravity takes over. Your body will accelerate towards the ground. The rate of acceleration is 9.8m/s2. In simple terms that could mean you are falling at 43 mile per hour (70 km/h)!

Once the bungee cord has dropped to its un-stretched length, it will then start to stretch. It’s not just the gravity that makes the bungee cord stretch, but also the tension in the cord too.

Tension in the bungee cord create an upwards force which will then reverse the direction of the stretch… meaning you will start to recoil back up. During this retraction, the acceleration is starting slow as the tension in the cord reduces.

The tension in the cord will get less and less meaning you will bounce for a few times. The air resistance plays a huge part here, as without it you would actually bounce forever!

The air slows you down each time you bounce, until you come to a stop and the experience is over.

​What are bungee cords made of?

Commercial bungee cords are manufactured from strands of synthetic elasticated rubber. Most bungee cords can have almost 400 strands of rubber inside, all compacted together.

These strands are wound together and then have an external cotton outer core and polyester cover binding wrapped around them.

It’s actually the same cord that’s used in the military testing of rockets, so that should make it quite reliable!

Do they test bungee jump cords?

In the UK they do due to strict health and safety guidelines (you can read them here if interested). Each bungee cord will be checked daily by the operators. This is a manual process where they run the cords through their hands to check for any faults or imperfections.

Bungee cords are then de-commissioned after around one thousand bounces.

The operators will then test the bungee cord from the platform itself by placing heavy gym weights into a bag to mimic the 130 kg weight of a person. The bag will be dropped from a height of 55 meters.

Bungee cords can stretch over 3 times their own size!

Once the test has been completed with weights, a member of the team will then test it. They will jump and fall at 70 kilometres per hour!

You can see the test in this video from National Geographic.

How do you get back up after a jump?

This depends on the type of bungee jump. Some will lower you down to the ground, others will use pulleys to pull you back up to the platform. You can read more about the getting up or down in this article.

Has anyone died bungee jumping?

There are many instances of fatalities, but not as many as you might think. I published a study into bungee jumping deaths which shows how many have been recorded each year according to what I could find in the media.

The physics of bungee jumping

Obviously, there is so much more to the actual physics involved in a bungee jump. I am not a scientist, so can’t give you a physics lesson on all the factors at play.

However, I did find a website which explains all the forces at work and even includes some equations and formulas. If you are of a scientific mind, check out the Real World Physics website to see the complex explanation of how bungee jumping works.

Conclusion

And that’s the simple explanation for how bungee jumping works. Do you think you’ve got what it takes to take the plunge?

What is a Tandem Bungee Jump?

what is tandem bungee jumping

You will have already heard of bungee jumping, but did you know there are some locations where you can double up with a friend or loved one and jump into the void together? Tandem bungee jumping is now available all around the work, but what exactly is it and how does it work?

What is a tandem bungee jumping? A tandem bungee jump works the same way as a solo jump, but the operators will attach you as a pair. You can share the bungee jump experience with a loved one, or there are some operators will let you jump in tandem with an instructor.

It’s a perfect way to enjoy bungee jumping is you’re scared to do it by yourself or want to share the massive rush you will get from jumping in freefall from a tall building, bridge, or crane.

Many of the operators actually say it’s a great way to get closer to a loved one! It’s something that you can share together and remember for the rest of your lives.

How tandem bungee jumping works

A tandem jump works exactly the same as a solo bungee jump aside from there being two of you on the one cord. It does not mean that you will be jumping separately on different cords.

This is a very simplistic overview of how it works:

  1. The bungee operators will weigh you both twice to calculate how much cord will need to be let out during the jump.
  2. They will then ask you to face and hold each other standing up.
  3. The bungee harnesses will be attached to your legs and ankles, and then connected together.
  4. You will then be taken up to the jump point harnessed together.
  5. Final safety checks will take place.
  6. Then the two of you jump!

You can see a video of a tandem jump in action below.

Is tandem bungee jumping safer than going solo?

One of the reasons you want to go in tandem could be down to fear and wanting someone to share the experience with you. Bungee jumping is scary for first timers, but the reality is that statistically it’s quite safe.

You can see a list of the fatalities recorded over the last few years in this blog post on recorded bungee deaths.

As far as tandem jumps go, I was only able to find two recorded fatalities that occurred when jumping as a pair.

  • July 2015: British holiday maker killed in a tandem bungee jump accident in Spain (see news report).
  • June 2015: Woman died in France during a tandem bungee jump with her partner (see news report).

Is it safer? No, it’s really no different as the mechanics are completely the same. The only thing you need to make sure to do is to keep hold of your partner and avoid any clashes of heads.

Handy Hint: We wrote a guide for first-time bungee jumpers which contains tips on how to prepare yourself and make the first jump.

How much does tandem bungee jumping cost?

How much you pay for a tandem bungee jump will depend on what country it is in, the location (pay more for a great view!) and how high the jump is.

I recently published a guide to global bungee jumping prices. Most operators won’t charge you exactly double for the tandem jump but will often give you a discount for two jumpers going at once.

Typical tandem prices are:

  • India: tandem costs £40 / $50 as a pair
  • New Zealand: tandem costs £233 / $300 as a pair
  • UK: tandem costs £98 / $125 as a pair
  • USA: tandem costs £155 / $200 as a pair

Can anyone jump on a tandem bungee?

The restrictions on bungee jumping will vary drastically from country to country. For example, in the UK you cannot jump if you are under 14 years old.

To find out if you are old enough to bungee in tandem read this guide to age limits depending on the country or location.

Each bungee operator will have to adhere to the legislation in their own country. As a general rule of thumb, companies tend to follow similar safety guidelines stating who they won’t let jump.

For example, you cannot take part if you have:

  • Back, neck, or spinal injury problems.
  • Any recent fractures, dislocations, or bone breaks.
  • High blood pressure.
  • Neurological disorders.
  • Heart problems and conditions.
  • Asthma, epilepsy, or osteoporosis.
  • If you are pregnant (here’s why it’s dangerous).

The best tandem bungee jumping locations

Some of the best tandem bungee jumps could be very close to you. Here’s a quick selection of some of the best I’ve come across in recent years.

  • UK: 160-foot London – North Greenwich Arena (The Dome)
  • UK: 300-foot Manchester – The highest tandem in the UK
  • New Zealand: 141-foot Kawarau Bridge
  • New Zealand: 131-foot Auckland Harbour Bridge
  • India: 270-foot Rishikesh Bungee Experience
  • Italy: 574-foot Valgadena Bridge – The highest in Europe that allows tandems

Conclusion

If you want to add some much-needed excitement and adventure to your life, a tandem bungee jump will offer you an unrivalled adrenalin rush. And who better to share the experience with than a good friend, partner, or loved one?

As you fall through the air you will experience 3 Gs of force, take in stunning views, and have a rush like no other as you and your partner plummet towards the earth.

Then just as you think you’re going to hit the floor you feel that initial pull and then the ride back up and the bounces as the bungee cord springs into action.

If you want to try bungee jumping and don’t think you can do it yourself, then consider going tandem. Or perhaps you just want a shared memory for a lifetime.

For either reason, I can’t recommend tandem bungee jumping enough. Get out there and have a go!
