Swing into action with Mega Adventure’s thrilling new addition!
Mega Adventure at West Beach has launched a brand new attraction this month – a Giant Swing. Combining the thrill of swinging fast and high through the air with gorgeous ocean views, this activity is sure to get the adrenaline racing.
Wearing the same harness required to participate in all Mega Adventure activities, riders are strapped into their seat at ground level, before being winched up to 18m off the ground where once they feel ready, can release the swing by pulling on the cord hanging behind them. No matter how young or old, expect squeals of trepidation and delight!
Our advice for youngsters from our brave 10 year old swing testers, would be to swing from the lower setting first. There’s the option to be winched up about a quarter of the way first, before swinging from the full height. There is a startling drop and the feeling of falling when you first release the swing, before you actually start to swing back and forth.
Mega Adventure already offers Adelaide’s leading climbing course, the SkyChallenge, which has more than 80 aerial crossings, a free-fall jump and the Crows Nest – a 30-metre, near-vertical climb.
The top of the SkyChallenge rewards climbers with beautiful 360-degree views taking in the ocean, city and Adelaide Hills.
The Giant Swing has a minimum height restriction of one metre and a maximum weight restriction of 128kg. Tickets are available for individual purchase or as an add-on to the SkyChallenge.
Mega Adventure Parks have been operating internationally for nearly a decade and the group invests heavily in safety, training and equipment.
Mega Adventure is open daily from 10am to 6pm and is located within Adelaide Shores, on the corner of Military Road and Hamra Avenue, West Beach.
