Giant Swing

Giant Swing at High Lodge Forest Centre

The Group Rope Swing offers an opportunity for large families and groups to play and have fun together. The swing accommodates up to 13 people. Straddle the rope, hold on to the guide ropes, lift your feet clear of the ground beneath and go with the flow. Start in unison by moving together in one direction. Gather momentum and keep the flow going by leaning forward and then back as your swing glides in a pendular motion. Let the adrenaline flow, laugh out loud and...swing to your hearts content.
