That's not really a great idea.

Tramp springs are prone to unexpected failures and since they would be the main support in any bungie jump type thing it would become more of a jump type thing.

Figure out a way to use the springs so that a failure of one or two of them won't cause a let down.

I remember one year in the olympics where the failure of one spring caused a progressive failure of almost all the springs on one side of the trampoline causing significantly reduced performance.
