Calling all adrenaline junkies – this year, sees the Royal Show introducing a brand new, terrifyingly fun event! Bagjumping – the no-strings-attached phenomenon taking the world by storm – is making its debut at Pietermaritzburg’s Royal Show, taking place this year at the Royal Agricultural Showgrounds between the 27th of May and the 5th of June.
It is quite simple – leap, twist, turn or somersault from a 14m high scissor-lift platform and land on the giant inflatable landing mattress below! The Bagjump is brought to you by Sevensevensports and is available to all Royal Show goers aged four and up. And for those who lack the mettle to literally fling themselves from a dizzy height, the Bagjump makes for spectacular viewing!
If you’ve always wanted to be a stunt-person, and experience the thrill of freefalling – but without any real danger – now’s your chance! The Bagjump will be open the entire duration of the Show and, since we’re expecting throngs of thrill-seekers lining up for this one, you may want to ‘jump’ the queue! We’ll be giving away five tickets a day, every day of the show, so here’s what you need to do to ‘bag’ yourself some tickets*:
*Winners will be selected at random, and tickets must be collected at the Bagjump venue. Tickets are for the Bagjump only.
