Leap off historic California bridges and soar through the air with Icarus Bungee. The day begins early, usually at the jump site, and includes multiple jumps from carefully scouted locations. Owner and guide Daniel Roza provides instruction, equipment, and jump supervision.
Reservations are required, and are best made by phone. There is at least one expedition every month, and since jump days are prescheduled it’s best to call about a month in advance.
Mr. Roza is an avid skeet shooter. If you’d like to shoot sporting clays after your jumps, let him know when you make your reservation.
Bay Area residents are no strangers to crossing bridges, though few have free-fallen from their lofty spans. A jump expedition with Icarus Bungee will change that. Tie in, count down, take a leap, and fly!
Icarus offers individualized trips to bridges around Northern California. Jumpers have the pleasure to bungee from various bridges hidden away in the Sierra Foothills, such as Enterprise, Alderpoint, and “Old Rickety,” among others. Expeditions are tailored to the group and dependent on weather and river conditions, so specific bridges vary each outing. The furthest drive is five hours, and most are closer. For more distant bridges, an overnight campsite will be recommended.
Icarus Bungee is one of the only eight U.S. bungee operations listed in the Worldwide Adventure and Extreme Sports Directory, and is owned and run by Daniel Roza, a former United States Navy Combat Engineer. All Icarus Bungee cords are personally built and tested by Mr. Roza. Testing means: Mr. Roza ties himself in and throws himself off a bridge. It’s his “I put my own life on the line guarantee.”
