Thrillseekers reach new heights as they swing from the top of South African Football Stadium on worlds biggest swing!
Adrenaline junkies can now test their head for heights by leaping from the top of a football stadium on the world’s tallest swing.
Set at the highest point of the Moses Mabhida Stadium in South Africa, The Big Rush invites those brave enough to leap from the top and swing across the world famous pitch.
At 88 metres high, thrillseekers can quite literally swing from the rafters as they leap from the top of the stadium, home of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
Named the tallest swing by The Guinness World Records, The Big Rush in Durban, South Africa, sees brave participants climb 352 steps to reach the stadium’s iconic arch of triumph.
Wearing a harness, attached to a giant bungee cord, daring participants then leap from the top, freefalling 60 metres before swinging across pitch at speeds of up to 90 miles per hour.
Colleen Kelly, 22, was daring enough to give it a go and said it was one of the most adrenaline thumping things she’d ever done.
She said: “Apart from being recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records as the World’s Tallest Swing, it is also the World’s Only stadium swing because of its unique design.
“You jump into the void above the world cup football pitch and swing out in a huge 220 m arc under the iconic arch.
“After climbing the stairs, you climb down a narrow ladder to the jump platform.
“The Jumpmasters connect you to your harness to the big swing main cord. They count you down from three and then you jump.
“For the first 10 seconds it felt like I was connected to nothing and was free falling into the stadium- it was exhilarating.
“When I finally felt my harness pulling from above I must say I was excited and relieved.
“I swung around the magnificent stadium for around 1 min before being hoisted to the top again.
“I’d definitely do it again, free falling from such a height felt as if I was flying and the view from the top was just amazing.”
