Bungee jumping is undoubtedly the most prominent sport in Queenstown, and it takes place from four of the world's most scenic bungee sites. Visitors can choose to throw themselves off a bridge or a gondola, or there are milder options that include cable swinging or the Bungee Rocket that shoots people into the air while strapped into a cage-like device on the end of a bungee cord. The first commercial bungee jump site in the world is on the historic Kawarau Suspension Bridge, situated 140 feet (43m) above the river, with viewing platforms for spectators.
