Bungee Jumping

Bungee Jumping

When talking about adventure activities in Dubai, there’s perhaps nothing that can match the thrill of being thrown from a great height as you fall through the air, cutting the height one feet at a time and just a few feet before you get anywhere close to the ground, you feel the cord around you jerk and cut the free fall short.

If you are too scared to jump alone, you can team up with a friend or an expert, which is known as tandem jumping in Dubai. It is an interesting choice for people who are bungee jumping for the first time to go tandem jumping.

There are some popular centres in Dubai where you can go for bungee jumping, Gravity Zone is one of them. You will be getting all the safety gears and instructions at the centre, following which you will be going to bungee jump. Before you jump the height, make sure you look around and enjoy the view.

"it was a great experience. I was bit apprehensive, when I booked through thrillophilia. but, they really organized it well. I booked a VIP package (costing 3800 per person). they arranged for private pick up in Nissan Petrol. They took us to camp, which is little far but better than Al Avir. \n\nLocal operator Mr. Danyal is a nice person. He took a great care of us. \n\nwe were provided land cruiser for dune bashing. then quad bike for 20-25 mins. after that, we did horse ride and camel ride. although camel ride and horse ride were namesake only. they would allow for 2 mins only and if you want to take a longer ride, you need to pay extra. so I skipped it. \n\nCamp had good performances like belly dance, Tanura show, Fire show and Jumba. Food was served on the table. Food quality was average.\n\nalthough, In the camp, they would try to get you money through multiple activities like sand art, Premium fruit salad, premium desserts, handbags, photo printouts, photo with eagle etc. And one needs to hard bargain. like I paid 20 dhiram for photos, they started with 150 dhiram."
