Would you do this???
While I was hiking the Rockies this weekend (incredible <inappropriate language removed> trip!!!) I spoke to a couple who told me that when their son visits Switzerland he likes to do something called a Swiss Canyon Jump.
You want the volume on.
The girl does curse in this clip
I want to do this, I just don't know if I'd be able to once I actually got up there.

I'd probably need clean pants at the bottom, but tough. I still would.
Incedently, if you think that's nuts, there's this. And this.
Of course, I went skydiving last Sunday, so I'm that kind of person...
Why do I get "this video is no longer available" on many youTube links, but later they work fine?
Same here... I haven't figured that out either.

I was looking for that exact clip on the flying suits. Thanks for posting it!

I feel quite confident in saying I would not be able to do it.

Sure. Where and how much does it cost? Interlaken is several hours south of here...

Looks like fun, but I'd be ascared.
Why do all three videos look like the camera has water on the lens? Referring to the OP links.

If I was in my 20's I'd probably do it.

I've done the bungee jump, and while the canyon environment provides a cooler setting to be sure, it's still just a bungee jump. IMO, for the money it is a not a good deal. My first reaction to the 5 seconds of freefall of a bungee jump was "I paid $60 for that?!" (And that was back in the 80's).
Go for the real thing. For probably the same or just a bit more you can make an actual skydive and experience a minute of freefall (enough time to enjoy a few manuevers). Not to mention that skydiving is safer. Plus, if you know a skydiver, and they are experienced enough, the tandem master will probably let them join you in freefall - - which takes the experience to a whole new level.

Agreed in many ways. Plus, if you get a skydiving license, it's fairly cheap to go up and jump. The place around here charges $20 for the plane ride, and $20 more if you need to rent equipment.

I would do it! I have done the sky dive and the rush was around the same as rideing the Fireblade but I dont have to pay to ride the bike!
