What do actor Zac Efron, comedian Rick Mercer and Paralympian Rick Hansen have in common? They’ve all taken the plunge with Whistler Bungee. The high-octane attraction draws thousands of thrill-seekers each year, including a few famous faces. Whether you leap, free-fall, swan-dive—or backflip, like Zac Efron—from 50 m (160 ft) above the glacier-fed Cheakamus River, the exhilaration and old-growth-forest views are the same. And if you can cross “celebrity spotting” off your bucket list at the same time, all the better.
