The moment I watched The Amazing Race Asia's season finale last December 9, 2010, I had to promise myself that by all means, I would try that Reverse Bungy ride. I could still clearly remember the challenge laid to the pairs of contestants there during the last leg of the race, wherein they were given some time to read a long set of equation, and then they were immediately thrown up in the air and they had to calculate for the answer. G-Max automatically found its perfect place in my bucket list.
And after 14 months of waiting, I finally had the chance to experience the G-Max. We bought the Extreme Adrenaline Super Combo ticket worth SGD 59.00 (access to both the G-Max Reverse Bungy and GX-5 Extreme Swing). If you choose only one ride, the ticket would cost SGD 49.00 per ride. The amount that you could save due to the promo could be quite intimidating (a whopping discount of SGD 39.00, will make one wonder if it is THAT challenging to try both rides). Anyway, the combo was nothing but perfect for me - being the adrenaline junkie that I am (I was planning to try both rides even though there was no promo), and being the spendthrift that I am.

Here's the photo. I was wearing a dress because there had been slight changes in our ala-Amazing Race itinerary and I do not have any other clean clothes.

How to get to G-Max: 2-3 minutes walk from the Clarke Quay station (if you found the right exit).
Budget for G-Max: SGD 49.00 (if it is only G-Max that you want to try, SGD 59.00 if you want to ride both G-Max and GX-5, completely different experiences).
Things you need to know before riding G-Max: You must be at least 1.2 meters tall, 12 years of age and not intoxicated. Place all loose items in the basket that they provide, bring lots of guts, and pray.
