MACAU -- Dressed in costumes inspired by destinations around the world, participants leapt off the Macau Tower Monday for the seventh annual Crazy Jump Day.
The event, powered by AirAsia and organized by adventure tourism company AJ Hackett, aims to bring more visitors to Macao, where they can experience the thrill and excitement of the world’s highest commercial bungy jump and SkyWalk.
The costumed bungy jumping event gathered 23 participants from Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Australia and China (which covers the mainland and Macau) who were picked to jump by AirAsia and AJ Hackett via a social media contest held a month before the event.
Jumpers were chosen for their creativity, storytelling skills and the relevance of their costume to the theme, which was inspired by AirAsia’s route network of more than 130 destinations.
Ernesto Humberto Trevino Amezcua, a Mexican national who currently resides in China, won the Best Costume Award and Best Jump of the Day Award, besting first runner-up Nicholas Andrew Webber from Australia and second runner-up John Paul Esguerra Fernandes from the Philippines.
Winners received return flights from AirAsia to Auckland, New Zealand (champion) and Singapore (first runner-up), combo activities to AJ Hackett destinations in Auckland and Sentosa, as well as AirAsia BIG Points.
AJ Hackett CEO AJ Hackett commended AirAsia for partnering with them in the event and making it possible for adventure seekers to try the activities in Macau by flying them in.
“It’s our wish that this yearly Crazy Jump Day event brings great value to Macau, the Macau Tower and our partners, and we look forward to holding many more successful events in the future,” said Hackett.
