Brave the bounce with a Brighton bungee jump!
There's always plenty of fun to be had in Brighton, but when bungee
comes to town, things get that bit more extreme... The Brighton
bungee jump is located at Brighton Marina and Brighton Beach Front,
giving jumpers a real treat - the views of the southern coast from
your 160ft bungee platform are really gorgeous. Be careful,
however, not to get overly caught up in the lovely views, as you'll
want to keep your mind focused on the reason you're standing on a
160ft high platform - to jump off it!
The location at Brighton Marina not only means that there is lots of free car parking for jumpers (and spectators), but also that the bungee jump can be part of a really lovely day out. The Marina has plenty of restaurants, cafés and pubs where you can go for a bite to eat, and if the sun is shining you are right beside the beach.
The beach-front location will give you spectacular views over the sea and promenade...who doesn't love to be beside the seaside?!
When you get to the bungee centre you will
complete a registration form, then be carefully weighed by the
crew, who will allocate you the perfect bungee cord for your jump.
Then it's time to get fitted in your harness, which will be double-
and triple-checked, to ensure absolutely everything is as it should
be for your bungee jump.
You'll then get in the 'hot seat', and be left in the very capable hands of the experienced jumpmaster. With your ankle harnesses properly fitted and some final safety check being completed, up goes the jump cage to it's 160 foot high destination. Take a moment or two to savour the seagull's eye view of Brighton, before you hear the jumpmaster's familiar call, then it's 3,2,1, Bungee!
You have the option to buy a personalised DVD or merchandise on the day to remember your experience with.
The Brighton Bungee Jump can be booked for one or two weekends throughout the year (subject to availability).

So much fun! A little scary jumping so close to the water, but a great view!
Having always wanted to Bungee jump, (pretty much my whole life) but never had the chance - I really couldn't have been more excited. Upon arriving, the bungee staff were great fun and made everyone feel completely at ease...even those who were nervous. Standing with my toes over the edge of the cage, preparing to jump, the nerves set in, but the second they said "3,2,1 Bungee" all fear dissolved & the rush of adrenaline set in - it's just a shame that the free-fall was over so quickly - bigger & better for me, next time! Awesome views though.
AMAZING. I am so pleased I did it. I will never do it again, as I was so petrified, but it was the biggest rush and a great experience!
Loved it! I've bungee jumped with you when it was set up on Hove Lawns - and now for two years running since the crane rocked up in the Marina. It's a great setting with seaside views - and as it was in the summer, a fantastic way to spend the afternoon! I recommend anyone try a bungee jump at least once - and if you get chance - as many times as possible! Falling backwards is much scarier - so the FAB (front and back) jump available here is ideal. 4.5 stars... reserving some improvement for the 400ft jump, which is next!!
I did the bungee jump at Brighton Marina on the 29th June 2014. Felt very comfortable with all the staff and felt that health and safety was taken seriously. Dave the bungee instructor was supportive as well. Would recommend. Thanks!
I loved it, the staff were really friendly. I have jumped before so they checked if i wanted to do my jump a little differently so that i got as much out of it as possible. My friend came and also jumped but it was the first one she had done, all of the team were lovely with her keeping her from getting too nervous. Fantastic day - thank you
The only downside is once you have your harness on there's no organisation on queuing, as found out when waiting people decided to jump in who clearly had there harness put on after myself.instead of waiting for around 30-45 minutes we waited an hour and a half. When explained to one of your colleagues he just shrugged his shoulders.overall I had a great day and would definatly recommend this day out but a queing system should really be put in place to stop people arguing.
A little expensive. the guy who stands there just before you jump and explains what's about to happen is well suited to his role, his name was ' TOMMY ' because he's quite matter of factly and tells you what you're about to do and how it's about to happen in a blunt way, which is good - it's quite reassuring - if he was too soft i don't think people would jump. give him a bonus or something
On Saturday 11th July, the Experience Days team met up with the UK Bungee Club for another unforgettable day of bungee jumping fun, right on the stunning Brighton beach-front. The weather could not have been more perfect, nor the views more crystal clear, but…as we know, bungee jumping is not about the weather, it’s about that rush of adrenaline.
We thought we’d share some of our own experiences with you, but of course, only you can really be the judge. Nevertheless, here’s what we thought:
“Having always wanted to Bungee jump, (pretty much my whole life) but never had the chance – I really couldn’t have been more excited. Upon arriving, the bungee staff were great fun and made everyone feel completely at ease…even those who were nervous. Standing with my toes over the edge of the cage, preparing to jump, the nerves set in, but the second they said “3,2,1 Bungee” all fear dissolved & the rush of adrenaline set in – it’s just a shame that the free-fall was over so quickly – bigger & better for me, next time! Awesome views though!” – Me
My colleagues decided that they weren’t quite brave enough to make the jumps, solo, so if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to Tandem Jump then Toby & Poppy’s reviews might give you more of an idea…
“As someone who is notoriously terrified of heights I was very apprehensive to take this experience hence why I decided to take the plunge with my best friend- Toby! As we travelled up in the cage, I had my eyes shut the entire time. It wasn’t until we leaped that I finally opened up my eyes and was pleasantly surprised at the calmness of being suspended in the air and the smooth transition of the rebound. The view was incredible and we were very lucky to have a clear blue sky as far as the eye could see. I have done a lot of experience days and this is by far the most exhilarating and memorable one so far, couldn’t recommend it enough!” – Poppy
“I have always been terrified at the thought of doing a Bungee Jump, but have always wanted to get the courage up to actually do one before I die! So, I thought I would attempt a tandem one first as this would ease me into it. Well I was right, doing the tandem jump definitely helped with my nerves. Going up in the cage was terrifying however, but what a view! A beautiful day on Brighton Beach – just a shame I couldn’t enjoy it! But you know what…..as SOON as I jumped….I felt fine. No nerves no fear! I think what this says is I’m more of an adrenaline junkie than I thought I was! So now I want to do an even higher one…on my own this time!” – Toby
The bungee will be back in Brighton in September, so what are you waiting for?…get jumping – book your place, now!!
We thought it was about time to have a chat with John, owner and founder of UK Bungee Club and one our very best experience providers. The level of professionalism and commitment to customer safety that the club projects makes it easy to understand why they are the market leader in bungee jumps. Here at Experience Days, many of our team have been lucky enough to jump and it is truly something we will never forget (you can see our jumps here). Although nerve wracking and nail bitingly scary, the rush of adrenaline is worth the anticipation and will leave you grinning ear-to-ear as you land back in reality. So, if you’ve been thinking about taking a step on the wild side and taking part in a bungee jump, have a read to find out a bit more about the adventure…
Q: Please could you tell us a bit about the history of UK Bungee and what inspired you to join the bungee jumping industry?
A: Bungee first started on 1/4/79 in Bristol when 4 members of the dangerous sports club jumped from the Clifton suspension bridge in Bristol. What most people don’t know is that Bungee jumping is a British invention. I jumped in Australia in 1991 and was hooked. Coming back to the UK The UK Bungee Club had just started operations. I became a Roadie and worked for the club more or less every weekend during the summer of 1992 completing all my exams to become a site controller. By 1993 the bubble had burst with only a handful of operations left in the UK. We decided to put a 300ft Crane next to the Thames in Battersea and we have never looked back. Today we offer 10 locations nationwide including Belfast at heights of 150ft, 300ft and 400ft plus the only Bridge in the UK plus the world’s only indoor Bungee. Overseas operations have included Moscow, Abu Dhabi, Thailand, Brazil, Australia and South Africa to name but a few. The UK Bungee Club continues to be market leader in the UK for Bungee jumping and safety consultation with the health and safety executive.
Q: How has the bungee industry or customers’ understanding of bungee changed over the years?
A: In the early days people were naturally scared of the product which was kind of the point. People were sceptical of the safety approach and the public needed educating. We were regularly inspected by local councils which we welcomed to spread the word regarding safety and that our operations were professional and run with integrity. Bungee is now recognised as a highly safe activity run by professionals. British health and safety is the best in the world and so by its very nature the attention to safety has been very high from inception back in 1992 when the company started. The general public know that with 25 years’ experience we are the company to jump with.
Q: What’s the most frequently asked question by customers?
A: Believe it not have you killed anybody and will I die. Thankfully the answer is no to both of these.
Q: What’s next for the Bungee Industry in the UK? Any exciting news to share with us?
A: We are looking at our 25 year anniversary next year on the 16th July so potentially we are looking at a 400ft Crane jump at Wembley Stadium. Look out for information on the Experience Days website!
Thanks UK Bungee Club for letting us know a bit more about your story. You can buy a bungee jump here which is available from a number of different locations. If you haven’t got the courage to jump on your own, jump with a friend!
