THE HISTORY OF BUNGY NIOUC

HOW IT ALL STARTED

In 1996, Peter Raidt and Manfred Wenger had this crazy idea to jump off the 190 meters suspended bridge in Niouc! One of the highest in the world!

From then on, thousands of jumpers experienced this magnificent bungy jump at this crazy spot.

QUICK HISTORY BEFORE 2012…

In 1997 Peter Raidt and Didi Wenger open the first company together and started developing the bungy spot. The location was growing fast and they developed the first Giant Swing and the Zipline. In 1999 it grew so big that they organized the bungy world championship. In 2000 Peter decided to develop other activities. Trampoline and Adventure Parks in the US and bungy jumping in Costa Rica. Didi continued running the suspended bridge alone till 2011, he did several huge events like the GOA party in 2001.

BUNGY NIOUC

In 2012, Eurobungy Swiss GmbH directed by Peter Raidt and based in Sierre, took over the management of the spot and Bungy Niouc was created. From then on, the site was fully transformed, renovated and secured. Bungy Niouc is a family where all potentials can be improved and developed.

OUR COMMUNITY

We are in close relationship with Slactivity and the Swiss Association of Highline. The biggest highline they set up in Niouc was 330 meters and more than 200 meters high! Thanks to that nice collaboration, the Highline Contest in 2019 and the Ninja Warrior (under the bridge) in 2020 were realised. That generated a lot of  buzz and  a lot of people participated and it was a great success! L’association des amis du pont, owners of the bridge, also have a good dynamic and are realizing nice projects for the spot like the future Via Ferrata and the organisation of the 100  years old party of the bridge in 2022.
