Been there, done that, got the t shirt? Then get ready for the ultimate thrill: the Catapult Experience! Follow in the footsteps of David Hasselhoff who was fired over 100ft into the air for ITV's Red or Black? You'll be equipped with nothing more than a single bungee cord and a harness before you take to the launch platform. Then feel the tension rising as the bungee cord is stretched out above you before you're catapulted towards the sky! If you think you've got what it takes to be like the Knight Rider himself then step right up and try the Catapult Experience!
On arrival you will complete a registration form. You will be given a full safety briefing and be weighed to ensure that the correct bungee cord is used. You will then be fitted with a full body harness before heading out to the launch platform where you will be attached to a single bungee cord. The bungee cord is then stretched further and further above you as the tension rises. After a tense pause, the jump master will pull the release system, instantly accelerating you towards the sky!

Following in the footsteps of the Hoff!
After seeing The Hoff do the catapult on TV, I was so excited about this experience! On arrival I didn't think it looked too high, but after seeing a few people doing it I started to get nervous! My boyfriend has never done anything like this before but he loved the adrenaline rush. Don't be fooled by your first impression - when you are up in the air it is VERY high up!
