The reverse bungee (also known as catapult bungee, slingshot, or ejection seat) is a modern type of fairground ride that was invented by Troy Griffin in c. 1978. The ride grew a following and is now one of the best known rides. Many installations also utilize a reverse-mounted camera that records passengers during their experience, typically available for purchase after completing the attraction.
Reverse bungee rides operate at amusement parks and as stand-alone attractions. Due to the limited capacity of the attraction, most installations are an upcharge and require a separate admission from their respective park.
Reverse bungee rides are manufactured by several different companies. One of the most prominent is the SlingShot ride from Funtime of Austria.
