Adventure and teamwork combine on the giant swing. Two children wearing full harnesses go on the swing together, securely attached to the swing bar. The rest of the activity group pull on a rope that lifts the swing bar up to its starting position. The children on the swing can choose when they pull the release cord to start. It’s their choice whether they start from the highest point or release closer to the ground for a more gentle swing. However high you choose to go, the giant swing is one of our most exhilarating and popular activity sessions.
