What do you get when you combined bungee jumping, zip lining, and skiing into a single activity? The Bun J Ride of course!
That is the name of the hottest attraction at the Tignes ski resort located in the French Alps. This crazy thrill ride is giving adrenaline junkies the opportunity to soar off of a massive ski jump and land safely in the snow below, without having to worry about all the pesky training that is usually needed.
Thrill-seekers slip on a harness that is attached to two mobile bungee cords, which are connected to zip lines overhead. They then hurl themselves down a 30-meter ramp on skis, a snowboard, or sled. At the end of the ramp is a 40-meter drop, which gives these daredevils the opportunity to soar through the air like an Olympic ski jumper, pulling off all kinds of crazy maneuvers while in the air. The bungee chords allow them to follow a safe trajectory throughout their flight before eventually locking into place and allowing the zip lines to safely deposit them back on the ground.
