The concept itself seems comically dangerous: Why would anyone willfully hurl themselves off a cliff, bridge, ledge or tower, attached only to what is basically a giant rubber band?

Why? For the same reason people sky dive and scale mountains. For the all-consuming adrenaline rush that comes with the risk. But not all rushes are created equal, what's the fun of jumping above a plain old lake if you can plummet next to a waterfall, above the tree tops or in the middle of a gorge?

Press Start for a look at the top bungee jumping locations that are sure to get your heart pumping.
