If you’re into adventure and dreaming to feel the free-fall, then head to The Pearl-Qatar Thursday where hundreds of thrill-seeking enthusiasts will flock to enjoy three days of fun.

Hosted at The Pearl-Qatar for the second time, the exciting event promises thrill-seeking participants unique experiences complimented by the most magnificent view over The Pearl-Qatar.

The venue for this year’s Bungee Jumping is the open area near the entrance to the island. Organized by Xploriders and sponsored by the Pearl-Qatar, the event runs from 4 p.m. till 8 p.m.Thursday, followed by full days on Friday and Saturday.

A spokesman for the Xploriders, organizer of the event said, “The choice of open area for Bungee Jumping will undoubtedly provide the perfect setting for this event with a once in a life time experience. It will also give viewers the opportunity to enjoy great views while taking the leap.”

Bungee jumping is an activity that involves jumping from a tall structure while connected to a large elastic cord. The tall structure is usually a fixed object, such as a building, bridge or crane; but it is also possible to jump from a movable object, such as a hot-air-balloon or helicopter, that has the ability to hover above the ground. The thrill comes from the free-falling and the rebound. When the person jumps, the cord stretches and the jumper flies upwards again as the cord recoils.

It is worth mentioning that in the coming days, The Pearl-Qatar will host an array of unique events. To begin with, the third and fourth rounds of the Qatar Drag Race Championship organized by Qatar Marine Sports Federation will be held on March 28-29 at Marina in Porto Arabia at The Pearl Qatar. Then on March 29, the Island will observe the ‘Earth Hour.’The Pearl-Qatar will also mark the annual ‘Residents Day’ on March 28, where senior company officials will spend the day with residents in celebration of this special day.
