    The fall is completely safe … it’s the impact that might hurt – don’t hit the ground too fast. Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    hey steve. sky diving i cant answer seeing as it was cancelled when i went. however i do know its a tandem jump and you have an instructor strapped to you.

    bungy well bungy. DO IT!!!!bungy isnt painful and really safe. your feet are padded nicely with thick towels. its the best adrenalin rush.

    Both are safe and a must! Skydiving isn’t scary as the ground seems so far away that it is a bit surreal. When I did the bungy jumping there was a big group of us from the tour doing the jump so no time to be scared! Also after doing the canyon swing the bungy seemed easy!!!
