World’s Tallest Super-Swing

The swing that is located on the edge of a nearly 700m-tall cliff in Yunyang Longgang Scenic Spot in Chongqing, China, fires out riders 70 meters away from the cliff that overlooks a giant canyon.. The swing claims to be the fastest of its kind at 80 mph.
It was meant to open to the public early this year. However, its opening was delayed by the coronavirus outbreak and the lockdown. Tourists will be bound to harness horizontally before being flung out at 80mph. According to the Guinness World Records the current tallest swing in the world measures 88 meters (288 feet 8 inches) from the seat to the top of the crossbar. It was constructed by B!g Rush in Durban, South Africa, on 14 May 2011.
