Whether you’re after an adrenaline rush, fancy trying something new or just want to give your mum something to worry about, this is the activity to for you.
Those in need of a thrill will be able to take their adrenaline habit to new heights with a 160ft bungee jump over Manchester’s Salford Quays, where jumpers will be able to take in the views of Manchester’s glorious skyline before leaping over the water below.
Brave souls can tackle the jump alone, while anyone in need of a bit of moral support will be able to do a tandem jump.
A spokesman for UK Bungee Club said:
“Salford Quays is the UK Bungee Club’s main bungee jumping site in the North of England and makes a fantastic bungee jumping venue.
“With the calming waters of Salford Quays below and the incredible views of Manchester city centre, including Manchester United’s Old Trafford and the many high rise buildings of this cosmopolitan city, this a bungee jumping site that provides everything!
“And as you reach the 160ft height, you will have a few seconds to admire these views before hearing those famous words, ‘3, 2, 1, Bungee!'”
