For the ultimate ride of your life, the ‘Big Rush Big Swing’ at the Moses Mabhida Stadium is a must on anyone’s ‘to do’ list. Because of its unique design, apart from being recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records as the “world’s tallest swing” (106 metres above the ground) it is also the ONLY stadium swing in the world!
First you are fitted with a full body harness at the Big Rush stadium shop and taken to the practice area for a demonstration – then you are ready to go! At the base of the stadium arch you are attached to a safety line for the ascent to ‘ladder rung 4’. When you reach the platform, you realise that your heartbeat has dramatically accelerated and try to calm yourself by looking at the breathtaking 360 degree views of Durban and the Indian Ocean.
You are then introduced to the Jump Masters who attach you to the jump rope and before you know it you are being counted down ‘3, 2, 1, Big Step’! As your 60 metre free-fall accelerates to a speed of over 120kph towards the world cup football pitch below, with not much else going through your mind, the slack in the rope starts to tighten up and you begin to swing out into a huge 220m arc under the iconic arch. All spectators are seated in the stadium from where they can watch you take on the big kids’ version of a swing.
