Bungee Jump to open at Towne West Square

WICHITA — If tattoos aren’t your thing, maybe you could try bungee jumping instead.

Bungee Jump will open at Towne West Square on Oct. 22.

Alper Mutluturk is opening the business. He has eight others nationally at properties owned by Simon Property Group, which owns Towne West.

Mutluturk doesn’t offer traditional bungee jumping.

Instead, his business has a trampoline people can jump on — sometimes 20 feet in the air — while strapped in harnesses.

Mutluturk will charge about $7 for the experience, though he hasn’t settled on a price.

“It does attract a lot of people,” he says.
