释义

名词

一种绑着绳索从高空跳下又回弹的活动,充满刺激性。英语“bungee jump”的音译。

DEFINITION

Noun

A thrilling activity in which a person attached with a rope jumps from a high altitude, falls freely and rebound. The term is the transliteration of the English term “bungee jump”.

由来
  • 主要的说法是绑紧跳源自于彭特科斯特岛(Pentecost Island)的邦莱族(Bunlap),该族使用藤蔓绑在脚踝上进行“陆地潜水” (land diving)。1955年,透过《国家地理》的报道,绑紧跳传到了世界各地。
  • 英语“bungee”据说与英语俚语“橡皮擦”的旧称有关。
  • 1980年代初,绑紧跳开始在北美洲与欧洲流行。
  • 新加坡也于2003年11月在克拉码头推出了首个绑紧跳设施。
ETYMOLOGY
  • According to general belief, bungee jumping originated from the Bunlap people of Pentecost Island, who tied vines to their ankles to conduct “land diving”. In 1955, a report by National Geographic helped to spread bungee jumping to the rest of the world.
  • “Bungee” in English is said to be related to the Old English slang for “rubber eraser”.
  • In the early 1980s, bungee jumping began to gain popularity in North America and Europe.
  • Singapore launched its first bungee jumping facility at Clarke Quay in November 2003.
