Experience weightlessness 245ft in the air with the Giant 3G Swing at the National Diving & Activity Centre, Chepstow.

Experience Weightlessness 245 feet in the air
with our ultimate adrenaline-pumping blast!

If you dare, you'll be strapped into the Giant 3G Swing, hoisted 50ft up into the air and slowly pulled back to the release point...

Then it is down to one of you to pull the ripcord!

After the initial terrifying drop, you'll launch into the air, feeling the G-force as you swing up into the sky, 245ft over the steep quarry edges of the UK’s Deepest Inland Dive Site.

You will then be momentarily weightless before accelerating through double gravity as you level out at the bottom.

You will continue to swing several times until our experienced staff bring you to a halt and carefully lower you down to the ground.

The Giant 3G Swing activity takes place at the National Diving & Activity Centre, near Chepstow. The NDAC is home to the UK's deepest inland dive site and one of the UK’s Longest Zip Wires. We have a range of other exciting activities you can try including Water Walking, Segway Active and Flyboards. We also have a Wooden Wigwam Village and fantastic Cafe Bar if you want to make a weekend of it.

What happens on the day

The Giant 3G Swing ChepstowUpon arrival you will be directed where to park and book in. Once you have booked in, completed all the necessary paperwork and issued with your wristband you can make your way over to our giant 3G Swing. We suggest heading over to the Swing itself around 10 minutes before your flight.

After a short safety briefing you are ready to be harnessed up and strapped into the 3G Giant swing as a pair.  You will both then be hoisted some 50ft in the air and pulled backwards to the release point.  

When ready you will then pull the ripcord to release yourself and feel the G-force as you fire up into the sky, 250ft in the air above our quarry. Then you will be momentarily weightless before accelerating through double gravity as you level out at the bottom.

Please note this experience during popular times or inclement weather may take longer that you anticipate to swing so please bear with us as sometime factors outside our control do occur from time to time.

This exhilarating challenge can also be viewed by loved ones from our viewing area at the View Cafe Bar.
