Nothing shows how brave you are like challenging gravity. No matter how much training, how brave or courageous, jumping off a ledge and free falling is scary--EVERY TIME. While this sh#t is terrifying yes, statistically speaking, it’s pretty safe. According to business insider, the chances of you splatting on the asphalt from a bungee jump are about 1 in 500,000.
But statistics aside, when you plummet off a ledge towards jagged rocks, your brain instinctively knows to clear those bowels and prepare for the end. While any bungee jump is pretty extreme, here's our list of bungee jumps across the globe that are SO extreme, you'll poop your pants:
In Humboldt California, the jump master packs a backpack with bungee gear, loads it on your back, and you climb yourself and equipment up a 200 foot redwood tree. That's scary enough on its own, but the real adrenaline comes when you jump yourself back down from whence you came.

The Niouc Bridge, in Switzerland stretches across the beautiful valley of Val d’Anniviers. Look up and you’ll see towering 13,000 foot snow tipped mountains all around, but look down—it’s just a shallow stream and jagged rocks.

Cost: $220 USD
Max Weight: 255 pounds
This 154 foot bungee free fall might have you thinking, “Well at least it’s not as high as the other spots.” Well think again, the thrill with this jump, you actually touch the water below. You tell the jump master your preference for how far you want to fall, and they’ll adjust the bungee so that just your hands, your head, or your whole body touch the water below. At Taupo Bungee, when you jump, you jump ALL the way down.
