An enthusiastic fairgoer claims an extreme sport as another check off her bucket list. 58 year-old Bianka Sauer came to the fair on Tuesday with a purpose. She was determined to do the bungee jump!
After pulling the clip from her hair and tossing it in excitement, Bianka climbed thirteen stories in a cage filled with uncertainty and crept out onto the ledge. After a quick look down, she retreated into the cage. The crowd started to chant, “Jump, Jump, Jump” and Bianka finally built up the courage for the big plunge.
The pictures tell the rest! Bianka took the final step and plummeted twelve stories before snapping back up, only to fall again! Nothing compares to the smile she wore as the operator lowered her down.
“I’ll be back Friday!” she stated triumphantly after landing safely back on the ground.
Thank you to Amusement Management International for making this jump possible. Visit their bungee jump at the Ventura County Fair!
