10 metres high and 80 metres long, this is a great way to build confidence at height.

Giant Swing

A 20 metre high harnessed swing. Challenge by choice is the key here with the swinger in control of the release. A great team building activity as the rest of the group is required to “haul” the swinger to the top. A definite “WOW” factor that challenges swingers to face their fears.
