Bungee jump.

Hands down the scariest thing I’ve ever done. This place was called “The Pipeline” and it was located in Queenstown, New Zealand. At the time, the 334 foot drop made it the second highest bungee in the world. The bridge was shakey. The platform was about as wide as my feet. They spent a mere 17 secconds tieing my feet in. I had to walk out onto the edge. Then everyone yells 1, 2, 3 BUNGEE and you’re supposed to jump. I half jumped. When I bent my knees to attempt to spring myself into the air, I just froze and fell off the platform. I rushed to a couple hundred miles per hour in fetal position. Then softly and smoothly I changed direction and felt the sensation again….then again…and again. The falling sensation is the scary part. I couldn’t yell. I could barely see. All I could do was squeeze every part of my body together as tight as I could and think about what death would feel like. It was awesome.
