Colombo (LNW): The Colombo Lotus Tower plans to launch a new bungee jumping programme by December this year, Daily Mirror reported quoting its Head of Management Prasad Samarasinghe.
This will reportedly be the world’s highest bungee jumping event, and will be initiated as per a contract entered by the Colombo Lotus Tower and Singapore Go Bungy Company.
The two companies signed the contract to start bungee jumping for the first time in Sri Lanka.
The initial launch was schedule for August this year, but was delayed since the management found that some upgrading had to be done to the ski ramp, along with certain changes in the plan from the company’s end, Samarasinghe revealed.
Bungee jumping being introduced to Sri Lanka is expected to boost the tourism industry in the crisis-hit island nation.
