RENOWNED bungy operator AJ Hackett International has broken ground for the construction of a 50m-tall bungy tower on Sentosa Island, the first of its kind for Singapore.
The custom-built tower will feature several experiences such as Double Bungy, a 47m high jump deck; Duo Giant Swings, the world’s first double swings where two groups of participants race each other towards the ground; and a Vertical Skywalk where guests can walk 44m down the centre tower shaft.
There is also a 40m-long vertical Skybridge that will allow participants of all ages to walk along an open-air platform to take in the sights and watch jumpers take the leap.
“A lot of time and effort has been put into the design and flow of this site, and in working with all stakeholders, we’ve tried to create a destination where people of all ages and adventure levels can challenge themselves and be entertained,” said AJ Hackett, the company’s founder and CEO.
The tower is scheduled to be completed by end-2016, and a limited number of tickets will be put up for auction prior to the opening of the attraction.
