    I mean is "try" suitable? It sounds weird to me. But obviously it's not, isn't it?
    It's completely normal

    Do you mean that your acquaintances (note the spelling) did bungee jumping for the first time? That's fine.

    It doesn't mean that they tried and failed, if that is what is worrying you.
