False News Report of Bungee Fail

A false news report is being circulated through several levels of media (television and on-line) which incorrectly reports a “bungee jumper fall, hoist rescue” by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department on Monday, December 17, 2018.

The Sheriff’s Department initially reported this as a “bungee jumper fall, hoist rescue, Bridge to Nowhere” on their Twitter and Instagram social media sites. This information is misleading as this was not a bungee accident. To be clear, this accident did not involve bungee jumping, bungee cord or anything to do with Bungee America.

The correct information follows: On December 17, two men, unknown and unrelated to Bungee America trespassed upon the Bridge to Nowhere for the purpose of illegal rope swings.

One of the individuals involved was injured when the rope they were hanging from broke. The individual fell to the bottom of the canyon and was airlifted to the hospital by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s air rescue. The Sheriff’s department reported the victim had non-life threatening injuries. We are now trying diligently to see that the accurate information is disseminated.

Bungee America is the only Government licensed bungee jumping company in the state of California.The Bridge to Nowhere and the 50 acres that surround it are private property and are owned by Bungee America. Anyone unknown and unrelated to Bungee America, doing any activity involving stepping over the railing at the Bridge to Nowhere, is in violation of trespassing and may be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Beat the Heat at Zero Gravity

It’s hot. Really hot. And it appears there’s no end in sight. But Zero Gravity has the answer, and it’s way more fun than air conditioning or a cold front.

It’s difficult to be hot when you’re flying through the air at 60 miles per hour; or when you’re blasting skyward from 0-70 mph in just 1.2 seconds; or when you’re free falling from 130 feet.  That’s right: adrenaline rides with a strong breeze.

The Skycoaster — Feel the anticipation build as we lift you 110 feet into the air, and then feel the wind in your face as you and up to two friends soar through the air at 60 mph.  That’ll cool you off in a hurry.

Texas Blastoff — Rocket 150 feet straight up with the speed of a dragster, and then, rather than fall straight back down, the four-bungee apparatus sends you on a topsy-turvy free fall full of twists, turns and flips.

Nothin’ But Net — We lift you to the top of our 16-story tower, and then we  simply let you go. That’s right – no bungee cord, parachute or straps.  Just you, a 130-foot drop, and the safety net below.

Thrilling rides and wind in your face to calm even the hottest of days? We’re not of the best Dallas attractions for nothing.
