AJ Hackett Bungy New Zealand Launches The Catapult

AJ Hackett Bungy New Zealand has launched The Catapult, which sees thrill seekers experience up to 3G of force and speeds of almost 100 km per hour in 1.5 seconds, as they are propelled 150 m out across a ravine before dropping suddenly towards the valley floor and experiencing a series of jaw-dropping bounces.

The recent official opening of this experience brings to fruition three decades of planning and development by Henry van Asch and the AJ Hackett Bungy NZ team.

Housed in a pod and between a series of cables, alongside the infamous Nevis Swing, The Catapult is a unique combination of height, flight and speed using a bespoke high-speed winch system developed over years of research.
