To an observer, bungee jumping is a terribly violent activity. Watching someone bungee jump can just be as intense as actually taking the plunge. But the observer is missing out on the thrill and fun of bungee jumping, the things that make bungee jumping enjoyable.
People intending to bungee jump have several questions and one of their top questions is just how scary the activity is. And the answer to this question depends on each individual. Some people are risk takers, daredevils who live for extreme sports. And for this set of people, bungee jumping won’t be that scary. But if you have a fear of heights and aren’t the adventure junkie type, the experience will be scary for you and that applies to only the first time.
The fear aspect of bungee jumping is mainly experienced by first-time jumpers. After the first jump, subsequent jumps will be far more enjoyable and you’ll be looking forward to the thrill and adrenaline before you jump. In fact, you anticipate it. It will no longer feel like you are jumping, you’ll feel like you are floating. It’s going to be one of the most rewarding activities you’ve ever done.
There are several bungee jumping destinations in the United States and this article focuses on places you can take the plunge in Minnesota. However, there are no bungee jumping destinations in Minnesota at this time. Your only option is to travel to states that have bungee jumping spots or try other adventure sports in Minnesota
Other Adventure Sports in Minnesota
Minnesota is popularly referred to as the “Land of 10,000 Lakes.” In reality, the state has more than 10,000 lakes and this is responsible for the popularity of water sports in Minnesota. The state is also the headquarters of the Mississippi River, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and superlative Lake Superior. With so many lakes, streams, and rivers, there are several sports for kayaking and canoeing. Boating and fishing are also popular in the state. And you are bound to encounter incredible scenery in several destinations.
Camping & Hiking
Hiking is popular in Minnesota thanks to the several miles of enchanting wilderness cover in the State that are protected by both federal and state laws. You can hike to a spectacular waterfall or go out to see wildlife on one of the state’s wildlife reserves.
If you are a camping enthusiast, you’ll be happy to know about the numerous and unforgettable campsites in the state. You can sleep gazing into a star-filled sky, in a tent, or in an RV. Camping is a wonderful way to connect with nature and go exploring.
You’ll find some of the most exceptional mountain bike trails in Minnesota. And the good news? Many of these trails remain open throughout winter. I like that many of the bike trails go through lush forests or wild prairies. And with the trails stretching several miles, you can ride your bike for as long as you want.
Sadly, not only there are no bungee jumping locations in Minnesota, but there aren’t any in the neighboring states either. To jump from a bridge, you will need to travel to other parts of the country! However, Minnesota is home to spectacular nature and there are tons of opportunities in the state for other adventures, that are (at least) just as enjoyable as bungee jumping.
