Is It Safe?
Yes! The passengers are first secured by an airplane safety lap belt. A padded safety bar then comes down over their shoulders and locks into position. A further belt is then secured from the seat (between the legs) to the over-shoulder safety restraint.
Each pair of bungee cords have a strict life span. Each jump is recorded by computer, which tells the operator when the bungee cords are due to be replaced to ensure the elastic is strong and does not become too worn. In the unlikely event that a bungee cord should fail, there is an additional safety rope coiled within the elastics to prevent the gondola from falling.
Safety checks and maintenance are carried out daily by our own experts, and an ADIPS* engineer carries out an annual safety inspection before the attraction is passed as safe to operate; copies of these safety certificates are available to clients upon request.
