Bungee Jumping Guidelines

1. You must be in good health. People with heart problems or a history of mental illness are not permitted to attend.

2. People with extreme short-sightedness must be very cautious because during the jump people turn head over heels. Therefore, it’s very easy to suffer from a stroke or detached retina.

3. Before the jump you should first warm up in order to prevent sprains or pulling a muscle.

4. You should wear comfortable sports clothing and be fit. Do not wear baggy or airy clothes, otherwise you may expose yourself.

5. After the leap, remember to control your body. Do not lift up your neck or arms, otherwise …

6. The last rule is that there are no rules. Unleash your imagination, open your mind and enjoy the intensity and excitement of this short moment!
