      Special comments

      Children 14 and under need to be accompanied by an adult

      Aside from being easily the most thrilling few seconds you'll spend doing anything this year, your bungy leap from the Harbor Bridge is a reverent, rubbery high-five to the bold New Zealander responsible for popularizing this sport back in the 1980s.

      A.J. Hackett, whose namesake company runs the Harbor Bridge operation, grew up on the North Shore, on the other side of this very bridge. A speed skier and all-around renegade spirit, Hackett became fascinated by the ancient "land diving" ritual practiced on Pentecost Island in the South Pacific.

      Anointed in coconut oil and using nothing but carefully selected lengths of jungle vine tied to their ankles, these islanders dive headfirst from a high wooden tower. The vines stop their fall just as they graze the ground with their shoulders, and somehow evade serious injury. Performed without benefit of practice or even a calculator to help village elders size up proper vine length and elasticity, this ceremonial act is sort of the holy grail of daredevil stunts.

      Attracted by its irresistible possibilities for Western thrill-seekers, Hackett looked for ways to make this crazy practice safe. And boing ... an extreme sport was born.

      Drawing on laboratory-tested mathematics, he pioneered the super-stretchy elastic cord in use today. He brought international attention to his new pastime with much-reported (and illegal) stunt jumps from famous bridges and landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, a hovering helicopter – and this Auckland Harbor Bridge.

      So as you stand on quivering knees in the jump pod, know that you're taking a leap of historic proportions.

      Pentecost Island, where "land diving" originated in the New Hebrides archipelago, had a visit from Queen Elizabeth in 1974. To honor Her Majesty, the locals staged an exhibition of the local pastime. But it was the rainy season; saturated vines gave way, and one luckless diver didn't survive. In 2008, a Portuguese man played it safe by tying together 18,500 condoms and successfully jumping from a 100-foot tower in Durban, South Africa.
