For thrill-seekers, the 5GX Bali Reverse Bungy offers an electrifying experience. At Bukit Vista, we believe in the perfect blend of excitement and safety that this activity provides for our adventurous guests.

The 5GX Bali Reverse Bungy is a slingshot ride that delivers an adrenaline-inducing experience in Bali. Each ride can accommodate three people at a time, with each individual securely strapped into the capsule while on the ground. With just the press of a button, the capsule is catapulted 50 meters into the air at a mind-boggling speed of around 200 km/h. A camera directly in front of the seats captures your photo during the ride, and you have the option to purchase a print as a memento of your exhilarating experience. The cost of a ride at 5GX Bali Reverse Bungy depends on the number of participants, making rates more economical for groups of three.

5GX Bali Reverse Bungy is one of the few rides in Bali that stays open until 3 am. Taking a 5G ride at dusk provides a thrilling sunset experience, offering a panoramic view all the way to the ocean. It’s important to note that the ride isn’t suitable for pregnant women and individuals with a history of heart disease or high blood pressure.
