You don’t have to be a child to enjoy a rope swing. They’re not just for kids anymore. But if you love getting the adrenaline pumping, you’re going to want to take a ride on a rope swing that dangles from the heights of a professional stadium.
In Dublin, South Africa, the Moses Mabhida Stadium has a height of 348 feet. It has a structure that runs over the open ceiling, which is the perfect place to hang the tallest rope swing in the world. And it is the tallest rope swing in the world. That is not an exaggeration.
Guinness has recorded the height of the swing and made it official at 288 feet. It’s a good thing they decided to make the rope 60 feet shorter than the max the stadium would allow. Could you imagine being the first one to swing?
It’s like skydiving. You hope the chute opens. Because if it doesn’t, you have a few seconds to realize that you’re about to become a part of the pavement. At least, there is some soft grass to land on.
Okay, I went down a hysterical thought about swinging on a rope. But, can you imagine the thrill that you get from swinging from a height of 348 feet? Everything looks small as you start out from the top. Then, your speed picks up as you reach the bottom and back up in the air you go flying. What a ride! Back and forth until it comes to an end. Just hold on tight.
