Bungee jumping or Bunjee Jumping is a kind of a non-motorized Extreme Sport. In Bungee jumping, the jumper makes a free fall from an elevated structure using an ankle strap and a long elastic cord. The jump is usually done from a stable structure such as a building or bridge, but it can also be done from a moving object such as a helicopter or a hot-air balloon.

Many people are attracted to the sport mainly from the thrill of free-falling and the excitement of the rebound immediately after the fall. On April 1, 1979, members of the Oxford University Dangerous Sports Club from the 250-foot (76 m) Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol.

Hackett holds the world record for the highest jump ever made at a height of 764 feet when he made a free fall from the Macau Tower in August 2005. Today, Hackett is one of the largest commercial operators of the sport in different countries.

Bunjee jumping is known to be a dangerous sport and a number fatalities had been reported, primarily due to the use of an excessively long cord. It is crucial for the elastic cord to be shorter than the actual distance from the jumping platform to the ground. The highest bridge recorded for commercial Bungee jumping is the Bloukrans Bridge Bungy in Africa.
