The Swoop consists of specially designed hang gliding harnesses where you are cocooned inside. One, two or three people can participate in this giant Swoop sky swing at one time, the more people the better the ride.
You nominate who pulls the ripcord on command and you are winched 40 meters sky high above the park and surrounding adventure rides. Your jumpmaster will call ‘ready on the ripcord’ and as you release yourself, you plunge towards the earth at 130kmph.
This is definitely a ride that will get your heart pumping.
