Vagablogging Field Report: Extreme bungee adventure in Guatemala
Cost: $22/adults $12.50/kids
What’s the coolest thing you’ve done lately?
Extreme Bungee!! Get strapped into a harness and shot into the air with up to 4G forces pressing against your body… basically you’re a human catapult. That’s extreme bungee.
Describe the experience:
One by one, all the members of my family (except for the two youngest and me, the pregnant mommy) take turns being shot into the air, reacting with screams and funny facial expressions while G forces press against their bodies and free falls turn their tummies. (The video is hilarious!)
What do you like about the experience? Dislike?
I loved watching my kids and husband as they experienced something new and faced (and overcame) fears and uncertainties in order to create great memories, build confidence and have unexpected fun!
I did not like the music that was played at the site. It was in English and inappropriate for children. However, the owner has since stated that he will be more aware of that in the future.
Describe a challenge you faced:
Convincing my oldest son that he could not have more than two turns!
What new lesson did you learn?
Giving children an opportunity to get out of their comfort zone and try something new is ultimately what travel is about. It helps their confidence to grow, and expands their minds.
Next we’ll be heading to El Salvador.
