The Bridge Day 250’ Rappel gives the general public the opportunity to be a Bridge Day participant. The first 250’ rappel off the New River Gorge Bridge was done in October 1993 when a participant from the Oprah Show did the rappel as part of the Show’s Week of Fears. Through the years, this rappel has been done for training, demonstrations, scouts, and part of Bridge Day.
