5 reasons to book a Down Under Tour

Down Under Tours (by The Resort at Glade Springs) offer Bridge Day goers an amazing experience at the world’s largest extreme sporting event. Down Under Tours take you to eh best view of the rappellers and BASE jumping landing zone.

Folks can board a van that will take you all the way to the banks of the New River to watch the rappellers descend, and see BASE jumpers make their way to the landing zone as they leap 876 feet from the bridge above.

Here are 5 reasons it’s a must-try experience:

1. Experience the Action Under the Bridge

The action under the bridge is just as exciting as the action on the bridge! From deep in the gorge, you can really appreciate how far the rappellers descend and the amazing flights and landings of the BASE jumpers.

2. Be Afraid of Heights, but Experience No Fear

If walking out the bridge and looking over the edge makes you queasy with fear, you’ll feel much better with your feet planted on the riverside, looking up. You won’t miss a thing!

3. Don’t Miss Anything

With 2 times (8:30 a.m. and at 12:30 p.m.), you can still spend plenty of time on the bridge people watching, shopping, eating amazing food and watching the BASE Jumpers on the platform.

4. Get a Cool T-Shirt

You’ll always remember your Down Under Tour and the good times at Bridge Day 2015 with the awesome t-shirt that comes with the tour package.

5. No Walk Back Up!

Possibly the best part of the tour is that you get to have all the fun and catch the lesser-seen view, without having to walk Fayette Station Road back to the top! Vehicles aren’t permitted, so he shuttles are the only way to see the underside while avoiding that strenuous 4-mile uphill trek back to the top!

Down Under Tours are $65 per person and include a t-shirt and lunch. To book your Down Under Tour, contact the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce at 800-927-0263 or email bridgeday@officialbridgeday.com.
