About us


Jean-François Michelin is a resident of Haute Savoie, who started out by working in a ski resort. Later on, he accompanied the inventor of bunjee jumping, AJ Hackett to Normandy, to Bali and to New Zeeland. In 2008, he got the revolutionary idea for bunjee jumping off a ramp and he went on to create the Bun J Ride in 2009. He has done over 100 000 jumps.

How it works

The Bun J Ride combines the techniques of ramp jumping, bungee jumping and zip line riding. The jumper is equipped with a harness at the waist, to which two mobile bungee cords are attached, one on each side. Starting at the top of the ramp, on the take-off accessory of his choosing, the jumper makes an approach run of about 30 meters, then jumps into the void from a height of 40 meters. The jump takes place while being secured by the two bungee cords that follow the jumper's trajectory. The system locks and once the jumper is stable, we bring him/her back to the ground by zip line.
We have given our bunjee cords some special features that surpass anything done in this field before:
  • our bunjee cords slide on steel cables, thus allowing unprecedented mobility
  • straps that can withstand a charge of 2 tons are integrated into each one of our bunjee cables, rendering them totally damage proof.


We are the only ones, in the entire world, to have built and to operate a giant ramp that is especially designed for bunjee jumping... off a ramp. Our ramps are made of wood, taking into account both the carbon footprint and the exceptional natural surroundings in which we are lucky to be working. A trampoline is approximately 30 meters long and weighs 27 tons. Exceptional means for exceptional thrills!

Bun J What ?

The name Bun J Ride comes from the English pronunciation “bungee” or “bungy”, to which we added the “ride” to represent movement and freedom. The “J” in the middle stands for the name of its inventor, Jeff.

We guarantee a superior safety level compared to the classic bunjee jump. We ourselves are more diligent than the applicable regulations require us to be. The safety of our clients is our absolute priority.

Homologations and insurance

Just like any other company that offers bunjee jumps, we follow the Afnor nf52s 501 & 502 norms. Our facilities have received the homologation of the Alpes Contrôles, a company which is in charge of checking the cableways in winter sports resorts.

Unlike in classic bungee jumping, the jumper is equipped with a harness to which two cords are attached, instead of one.
  • twice the security
  • twice as mild during the bounce
and no need to have your head upside down during the jump.

A Bun J Ride exclusive: we fit all our bunjee cords with extra security straps that can withstand a weight of 2 tons.
