The first bungee foray took place atop Kawarau Bridge in Queenstown, New Zealand back in 1988. A.J. Hackett and Henry van Asch later launched Bungy New Zealand, and as they say the rest is history. In fact, 25 years of history will be celebrated on Nov. 12 in Queenstown, the birthplace of bungee jumping.
The company has since evolved into a full-fledged adventure operator offering activities, such as the Kawarau Bridge Bungy, Kawarau Zipride, Ledge Bungy, Ledge Swing, Nevis Bungy and Nevis Swing, Jet boat rides, Skyline Gondola, and Go-Karting.
