A reverse bungee jump isn’t where you jump out of a plane facing backwards, instead it’s where you’re on the ground and you get shot into the air thanks to a sort of catapult machine, while attached to safety harnesses of course. David Hasselhoff did this and was shot 270 feet into the air, setting the record for the highest reverse bungee jump.
