Borderlands 2 FREE Bungee Jump
Ely Yard, The Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, London
UPDATE 26-SEP-2012: These first two guys DIDN’T ACTUALLY JUMP after waiting for over 20 hours in the rain. I ran into them leaving the venue.
However I have had contact from 48 year old Stephen Mazonis (Twitter: @anything_but). He was the 3rd in the queue and the first to jump. He was actually jumping for his son who broke his leg in the summer – MASSIVE KUDOS TO STEPHEN!
There are a LOT of people here queuing for the Borderlands 2 Free Bungee jump at the Truman Brewery. These two guys, Pete and Dave were at the front of the queue.
“We’ve been here since 2… yesterday” -Dave
The event is 10h00-16h00. I arrived 15 minutes before the start to find at least 300 people in front of me! By 10h30 the queue extended all the way back to Commercial Street. I spoke to a few guys about 200 behind Pete and Dave, who arrived around 08h00. I told one guy he was insane, not for bungee jumping, but for waiting.
“What else am I gonna do on a Sunday, I’m gonna wait… I’m gonna jump and get my free game!”
When I left at 10h30, the crane hadn’t even been erected yet! Assuming that it takes 3 minutes per bungee and there were 300 people in front of me. That means waiting for over 3 hours and they haven’t even started!
To all of you HARDCORE gamers getting soaked in the queue, I salute you… from the coffee shop around the corner where’s it’s nice and dry!
