What is the difference between a swing and a bungy?
In a bungy jump, after free-falling the cord stretches out to allow you to bounce a few times in an adrenalin-fuelled but safe manner. Whilst swingers never bounce, after a short free-fall the rope catches you and pulls you into a huge arc and you swing back and forwards over the river. The sensation is the same as a playground swing, but way bigger and faster and more fun.
Can I touch the water?
No, ‘water touch’ will not be possible.
Which rides can be tandem?
The Canyon Walk is ok for groups of friends to participate together and is recommended. The Canyon Zip is currently the only solo but we are planning a tandem zip activity soon. The Canyon swing is OK solo or tandem and more fun shared with a friend or even one of the Gravity Park staff.
