The cost for a bungy jump is $95 (Cdn.) plus tax. Successive jumps are cheaper, until after five jumps you become a member of the Bungy Club, in which jumps are always just $25 (Cdn.).
The jumping bridge at the Bungy Zone rises 140 feet above the Nanaimo River. After signing a waiver (well, what did you expect before jumping off a bridge?) and hopping on a scale, an attendant will write your weight on your hand for the bridge attendants and remind you to empty your pockets. You'll then climb the steps to the top of the bridge (those who just want to watch are welcome, too), where the bungy boys await with their carabiners, climbing rope, and "just do it" attitude. Try not to be frightened by the fact that they look 12 years old. They know what they're doing, and it does feel safe.
