Description: The G-MAX Reverse Bungy is Singapore's first bungy ride and works just like the popular game Angry Birds, except you're the human slingshot. It is as its name suggests - bungy-jumping but in the reverse direction. Built and created in New Zealand, the ride is probably not for the faint-hearted, or weak-stomached. Once on it, riders get catapulted up to 60 meters in the air, hitting speeds of up to 200 kilometers per hour and experiencing G Forces similar to those experienced by astronauts in a rocket launch. Feel your feet tangle mid-air for a few moments and enjoy the panoramic views of the Singapore city's skyline before you're lowered to the ground.
If you prefer free-falling, try the GX-5 Extreme Swing instead. The 5-seater capsule is pulled to a near 90-degree angle, 50 meters off the ground, with its riders facing downwards before it is released like a gigantic swing. Feel yourself free-falling and flying out over the Singapore River, reaching speeds of up to 125 kilometers per hour.
If you do intend to try out these thrilling rides located at Clarke Quay, do so before heading out to the pubs nearby for drinks, as intoxicated persons will not be permitted to ride.
