Vertigo 360 is the UK’s first 360 Degree Swing open to the public – And it’s in Cornwall!
Did you ever try to swing so high in the playground that you went over the top? Us too. And when we saw this video by Colin Furze of a 360 Degree Swing, we knew we had to give it a go… (don’t try this at home)
The 360 Swing is born!
So we gave it a go and it worked – in fact it’s a bit bigger than Colin’s!
Perched on top of the hill overlooking the Eden Project, it’s totally unique. Once you’re strapped in, swing as high as you dare and if you have the nerve you can do the 10m loop. Oof!
The secret is using rigid poles instead of chains or rope, and you need a bearing that can go all the way around. That playground swing you went on just can’t do this, because they use flexible cables or chains. As you go higher, you’re going to fall straight down, as the chain is going to go slack.
Why not go for it and book a Multi Activity – make it an adrenalin packed day.
