Mar 31, 2015
Thanks to Peter Jackson and "Lord of the Rings," New Zealand is now mostly famous for its sweeping landscapes. It conjures up images of gentle sheep farmers living in quiet harmony, but this video proves New Zealanders actually have quite a bit of a wild side.

The country is the birthplace of commercial bungee jumping and regularly gets featured as a place to go for a great bungee experience. New Zealanders AJ Hackett and Chris Sigglekow first came up with the idea 25 years ago and drew straws to see who'd be the first to test it out (Chris lost). Fast forward to today, and bungee jumping has become a major tourist attraction for thrill-seeking vacationers and extreme sports lovers alike.
