Participants dressed up as a Thai boxer, a crocodile hunter & a “sumo wrestler from Mexico” emerged as the grand winners for the seventh Crazy Jump Day, an annual costumed bungy jumping competition organised by the world’s top adventure tourism company AJ Hackett and powered by the world’s best low-cost airline AirAsia.
Bungy jumping has always been on my bucket list. The thought of just leaping off a ledge and free-falling from hundreds of feet in the air into the unknown has always been something I’ve wanted to try. However, I always imagined the setting to be a bright sunny day, with friends and family cheering when I finally took the plunge. Jumping solo at night, after a long day of rain, amidst fog and right after a freak lightning storm was not exactly what I had in mind.
