“Fantastic Experience!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

Firstly I bought a deal on itson on a whim as I had always wanted to do a bungee jump. My friend and I booked up by e-mail and the responses were quick and helpful from the staff at highland fling. The days prior to the jump I was panicking at the realisation I would actually be jumping off a 165ft crane. The morning of the jump I woke up early and our jump was 12 noon on Sunday 1st june.

There is a massive car park on site (free parking and visitors cam watch from the bottom of the crane) and you can take a mini bus round to the crane or just walk like we did. The staff were amazing from the women checking in and weighing you before the jump (which was reassuring they check every detail and triple check before your jump) to the staff at the top of the crane. There is a nice glass lift which takes you to the observation deck and its only once you are up here you appreciate the views of Glasgow and also how high up it actually is.

You wear 2 harnesses round your waist so you are not attached from your feet and left to dangle upside down once you have jumped which I thought was great as you don't have the blood rushing to your head or anything.

The staff working at the top of the crane were excellent. They spent time setting up all the ropes and safety was paramount. I was last having watched everyone jump off. I ran and just before the ledge I stopped as it just dawned on me what on earth am I doing!! The staff were brilliant and a 2 second pep talk about how the longer you spend up here the worse it is going to be to jump. So I took a few steps back and then ran and jumped off.(I was also last before they stop for lunch so didn't want to keep them all waiting!!)

The feeling is like nothing you will experience, the adrenaline is pumping as you stare at the river Clyde as you are rushing towards it. You can't let out any screams or any words which I didn't think would happen. The whole jump to bouncing back up lasts about a minute but it is such a feeling of being free whizzing through the air,

They take professional shots as you do your jump and although they are £20 (high resolution which you download the next day yourself), it was a one off experience so my friend and I bought them. They will look good blown up on the wall or something.

Overall a fantastic experience and thoroughly enjoyed it.

“1st jump to raise money for Marie curie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

Me and 3 others done our first jump yesterday (01/06/2014) it was a great experience made a lot easier by the great staff. Especially the man I think is called kenna or McKenna. He helped take your mind of it and gave each if us a confidence boost. Great experience.

“Bungee jumping & johnny bravo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

So I get a message from a good friend of mine.
"you're going bungee jumping, it's all booked so no turning back"
My first ever bungee jump, it had been on my bucket list for years & finally it was happening. We headed to the clydebank titan crane to meet the guys from Highland Fling. As soon as we got there it was a fantastic welcome if not alittle nerve racking, people were already jumping from the crane so you could watch what you were getting yourself into. There's an option of having photos or a video taken whilst you are jumping. We opted for the photo package, just to see what incredible faces could be pulled.
Up on the crane the guys were on top form,your safety is completely looked after. Everything taken care of & they love to have a good laugh. We were harnessed up in the gate house then lead along to the end of the crane. They had music playing at the jump platform, which helps any ominous silences. Let it be known tho if you do the 'monkey' along to the music, a certain jump team member has some cracking johnny bravo impressions up his sleeve! The entire team were superb, putting anyone at ease who might have second thoughts once their toes are hanging off that edge.
I highly recommend bungee jumping with Highland Fling. You couldn't ask for a nicer bunch of people while throwing yourself off a giant crane.
Myself & most of the other first time jumpers are already planning out our 2nd jumps. I think we have well & truly caught the adrenaline bug!
