Ever Wondered What Is Inside A Bungy Rope?

Three years ago whilst in Hanmer Springs, I went past one of the shops where you can get tickets for various tours and activities. One of these activities was bungy jumping. It’s safe to say that I will never ever be on the end of a bungy rope, but  that’s not to say that I am not interested in what’s inside of one of those.  It turns out that a bungy cord is not one cord, but many, all elastic and packed tightly together.  If you are a braver soul than I will ever be, and are one of those daredevils who would (or has) taken the plunge, I thought it might be interesting to see what you are investing your life in.

  1. One of the craziest things I’ve ever done was that, bungy jumping. I gotta say the adrenaline high is amazing, but when you are up there debating on what to do. When your brain tells your body to back down and you are trying to command your legs to jump, weird feeling. But once they push you, you are fine.

    • Walk & Pig-out,

      Kudos to you! You are far braver than I am! I love how you added about being pushed lol, That probably sums up how most people end up taking their jump 🙂
