You Can Drop 347 Feet On The Highest Rope Swing In The World


Adrenaline junkies, where you at? It’s time to head to South Africa to give the world’s highest rope swing a whirl. The Big Rush Adrenaline Swing will drop you from its 347-feet-high summit and send you flying high above an entire football field. If your stomach isn’t turning at the thought of the experience, yep, this swing is for you.

Located in Durban, a coastal city in South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province, the rope swing has maintained the Guinness World Record as the tallest swing in the world since 2011. If that isn’t a clear indication of just how insane the ride is, let us further explain.

While the experience only lasts 30 seconds, it’s probably unlike anything you’ve done before. You’re dropped into a 196-foot free fall at a max speed of 74 miles an hour. That’s faster than a car cruising on the highway.
