Big Rush Big Swing

Big Rush Big Swing

I couldnt resist – this was submitted to the SA-Venues.com website as a “Thing to Do“, and I thought our readers might like to know about this – I love that all ages are allowed to do this – which means that even I could give it a go next time I visit Durban (there is no age limit – they have apparantly ‘jumped’ people as young as 8 years and as old as 75!).

For the ultimate ride of your life the ‘Big Rush Big Swing’ at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban is a must. This is the world’s only stadium swing and the biggest swing of any kind anywhere. Jump into the void 106 meters above the world cup football pitch and swing out in a huge 220 meter arc under the iconic arch. All equipment and instruction is provided by qualified staff.

Big Rush have a shop at the stadium (shop 15) where they run check in and registration for the jump as well as retail clothing, video and still photos of clients jumping. They also have a coffee lounge where you can relax and watch videos of people jumping. Swing Clients have the added bonus of walking up the arch from where they can stop and admire the spectacular views of Durban and the Indian Ocean.
