AJ Hackett Bungy, Minjin Swing

WOW, 50 metres towering over the pool, with views all the way to the Great Barrier Reef, "what am i doing" is all that is going around in my head. You're about to bungy jump 50m head first into water. WHY WHY WHY... "ok" the guys yell "it's time, you ready for the ultmate rush?". "ITS BUNGY TIME" but just remember don't look down, yeah thats gunna work. Ok so when you're ready BUNGY BUNGY BUNGY, but smile for the camera first.

Can I do this is all I kept asking myself ? Ok I can't chicken out now the girls will laugh at me.

1 - 2 - 3... BUNGY... OMG, all I could see was the water coming for my head, then in I went half my head underwater and then I sprang back up in the air about 20 metres and down again, what a feeling, not scared anymore just enjoying the up and down bouncing, my heart still pumping so fast but in a great way.

I want to do it again I yell. But hey I'll try the Minjin Swing. So onceIi was untied, and safely on firm ground, over to the swing I went. The guys got me in the harness and lifted me up 45 metres above the tree tops right next door to the Bungy tower.

Ok once the green light flashes you can pull the release cord and off you will go... I saw the green light flash and I yanked the release cord. But nothing happened, what's going on I thought, I don't wanna be stuck up here.

About 5 seconds later my head dropped and I flew through the air at 120kms per hour with the roof of the bar coming stright at me. It was an amazing feeling I was flying like a bird. After about 3 minutes of swinging back and forth they got us back down again. What a feeling!
