Calling all adrenaline junkies! If you’ve ever dreamed of flying through the air at ridiculous heights, look no further. Just minutes outside of Ottawa is North America’s highest bungee jump, and you can soar over a lagoon at over 200 feet.
If you’re looking for a summer adventure like no other, Ottawa has got your back.
Located just fifteen minutes outside of the city, The Great Canadian Bungee (CGB) offers “The Rock,” one of the highest bungee experiences in the world.
Here, you can jump from an elevated white crane at 200 feet, and bungee over a huge lagoon and magnificent quarry.
If you think 200 feet sounds pretty high, that’s because it is! According to the GCB, the bungee rebound alone here is “higher than the entire jump height at any other site in the US or Canada.”
While the experience definitely sounds terrifying, it also sounds pretty beautiful. The company explains that you’ll fly over a “deep aqua-blue, spring-fed lagoon,” that is larger than three football fields.
For real thrill seekers, you can even ask to try a “water dip,” during which you’ll touch the lagoon when you're bungee-ing.
Jumpers can also decide if they want to be attached by the ankles or the waist, eek!
GCB explains that there should be no pain or discomfort involved in a bungee experience, and the worst part is definitely the nerves.
Like many extraordinary adventures, this experience doesn’t come cheap. The cost of a solo jump is $130.46, and you can jump twice for an extra $60.88.
More information about price packages, weight restrictions and dress codes can be found here.
It is recommended that you reserve your jump in advance, to avoid being disappointed on the day.
For those looking for a more peaceful day out, you can cheer on your friends and enjoy the area from a more comfortable height. Morrison’s Quarry has a beautiful beach and picnic area, and admission is just $5 for the whole day.
