Remember that epic scene in James Bond: GoldenEye with the amazing bungee jump? That was shot in the Verzasca Dam and now you can recreate it!
That scene from the James Bond film GoldenEye made the Verzasca Dam and the bungee jump from it one of the world's most famous jumps. In Ticino, Switzerland you'll be able to jump from a height of 220 m right into the void in Verzasca Dam.
Slip into agent 007's shoes and experience the amazing rush that bungee jumping can offer. You can even share this experience with your partner, family or friends!
Depending on your level of experience (whether you've already done bungee before), you can jump in the traditional way: head first (first timers) or with your back facing the drop (experienced jumpers)! Your feet will be attached to a large elastic band and strapped to a security harness. Also, a jumpmaster and outdoor specialists will be with you so make sure everything goes as plan and you can jump in complete safety.
By the way, jumping from the Verzasca Dam is considered one of the best stunts ever!
