Description
@ The Marina crescent.
The BUNGEE is a free fall jump practiced while connected to a long elastic cord from considerable height .
The cord stretches as you fall toward the earth and when it reaches its limit, before you hit the ground, the cord snaps back and you careen upwards.
This very popular and extremely spectacular form of sport is a real crowd puller, and our professional Bungee team are bringing this activity right into the heart of the city @ The Marina crescent.

When : 22, 23, 24 Feb, 2013.

What is bungee jump ?
Bungee jumping is an activity that involves jumping from a tall structure while connected to a large elastic cord. The tall structure is usually a fixed object, such as a building, bridge or crane; but it is also possible to jump from a movable object, such as a hot-air-balloon or helicopter, that has the ability to hover above the ground. The thrill comes from the free-falling and the rebound. When the person jumps, the cord stretches and the jumper flies upwards again as the cord recoils, and continues to oscillate up and down until all the energy is dissipated.

3rd Redbull Flugtag in ACTION – Kuwait 2012

All selected  teams flown their planes from a 25 meter long and 6 meters high constructed  runway using only human power. Each team, consists of one pilot and 3  assistants, so that he could lead the aircraft while the assistants help to hover  as far as possible before landing in the water.

While the sky  may be the limit on creativity, there are still a few flight regulations.  First off, all flying machines must be  entirely human-powered (no external energy sources or stored power). Second, no  matter what they say, size does matter – all crafts must be less than 8 meters  wide and must weigh no more than 180 KGs including the pilot. Safety is paramount; therefore all competitors must wear a  life jacket and helmet.

Since the first  Red Bull Flugtag took place in Vienna, Austria, in 1991, more than 100 Flugtags  have been held around the globe, attracting up to 300,000 spectators for a  single event.
