Bungee jumping is a popular sport but there are VERY few professional companies around. We understand the options available are not ideal but that’s the nature of this sport. Due to the number of bungee jumping locations, most people will need to drive 100 miles or more to jump with a professional bungee company. If this is not a feasible option, we recommend searching for a theme park nearby which offers something similar to the bungee jumping experience. You may also consider participating in another extreme sport (such as skydiving) as locations may be more readily available.
AJ Hackett was the only traditional bungee jumping location in Nevada and is currently out of business. There are other adventures in Las Vegas but these are not considered traditional bungee jumps.
These options are the Stratosphere Hotel and Xtreme Zone at Circus Circus Adventure Dome. The Stratosphere Hotel offers a controlled freefall in a jumpsuit and harness from the 108th floor. Xtreme Zone is located indoors and uses a bungee trampoline. You wear a harness attached to elastic cords and vertical lift poles. These are not considered bungee jumps but they are the closest adventures to bungee jumping in Nevada. You may be interested in visiting the locations in California, Idaho and Oregon.

We do the research so you can spend less time searching and more time enjoying the extreme sports you love. We search the internet for bungee jumping locations but as new professional bungee companies become available and others do not have a well known presence, letting us know these locations will help grow the online extreme sports community. We greatly appreciate your assistance.

Bungee Jumping Safety:
Modern bungee jumping is a relatively safe sport due to operators rigorously checking calculations and the bungee equipment. Injuries and death can still occur as with any sport. Many commercial operators now use full body harnesses to avoid the possibility of a jumper becoming detached from the ankle attachment.
That’s an additional step some bungee jumping operators take to ensure the safety of their jumpers. Mistakes have occurred with miscalculations and equipment errors. Injuries that occur during bungee jumping despite safety measures are upper body intravascular pressure, eyesight damage, whiplash and neck damage.
There are two types of elastic ropes used in the sport of bungee jumping: braided and unbraided. A factory produced elastic rope, used by many commercial bungee operators, is a braided shock cord consisting of many latex strands enclosed in a durable outer cover. This rope gives a harder, sharper bounce. The second type of rope consists of unbraided cords which can be home-made. This rope produces a softer, longer bounce. Many commercial bungee jumping operators use a full body harness as a backup to the ankle attachment.
