Highland Fling Bungee is part of a long tradition with bungee jumping first appeared on the Pentecost Island in the South Pacific (between Fiji and the Soloman Islands, east of Australia). A 28-meter high tower was built, before jumping every man has ritual bath and then climbs the tower, there he makes a speech, before jumping head down, to proof his manhood. This tradition has retained to this today and is now a touristic attraction on the island. The western world first heard of bungee jumping in 1955, in an article written in National Geographic magazine. The first bungee jumping recorded away from the Pentecost Island was on the 1st of April 1979, when members of Oxford Dangerous Sport Club performed a few (illegal) jumps from the 80-meter high Bristol Clifton Suspension Bridge, England. In 1989 a New Zealander adventurer A.J. Hackett (then anonymous) started the very first commercial bungee site in Queenstown, New Zealand. Today over a million people have jumped on his worldwide bungee sites.
