Extreme Swings | Giant Swing Canyon

Extreme swings — Giant Canyon Swing is located in Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. The swing is at the canyon's edge at 396m above the Colorado River. Glenwood Springs, a small Colorado town, is known for its many attractions. This steel beast, which is about 400m above the Colorado River, was named "the most fun place in America" by USA Today. The four passengers will swing up at an angle of 112 degrees, traveling at 80 km/h. The highest point of the ride allows thrill-seekers to see the bottomless precipice and hear their screams. Steve Buckley, 41, was the original inventor of these swings. He was afraid to roll them again and had a hard time getting back on it. However, it is great fun watching the faces of skiers and hearing their screams as they ski. The duration of the swings lasts for 60 seconds.
