A Pendulum of Fun
Bet you feel like you’re done, right? You have the essentials taken care of, so what more could there be to worry about? What about the fun? What about something that really breaks you out of your reserved shell and has you screaming primordially from the sudden burst of adrenaline?
It may sound a little extreme, especially since you’ve come to Oahu to relax amongst a tropical paradise, but there’s nothing about our King Swing adventure that takes away from the rest of your vacation. If anything, it’ll amplify your days of relaxation and maybe even teach you something about yourself – such as how you really do enjoy the feeling of your stomach jetting into your chest.
Swinging to Excitement
When you hear the term “King Swing,” chances are you may be thinking of an oversized version of a playground swing. Let’s clear that up first, because this is far from your typical children’s entertainment. This is an aerial attraction that is perfect for thrill seekers that are looking for that short adrenaline rush.
Like those tame playground swings, your feet are off the ground. Unlike those child-friendly playsets, you’re hoisted 50-feet into the air where you’re bound to get an incredible view of distant Oahu. That view doesn’t stay, though, as the moment you reach peak height, you’re dropped into a heart-stopping freefall.
You’ll swing upwards of 100-ft off the ground as the harness rocks you like a pendulum, first rushing you face-first towards the ground then back up towards the crystal blue skies of Hawaii. Feel a refreshing rush of fresh air with each drop and try to catch a glimpse of the beauty that outlines the island of Oahu.
The King Swing is an amazing experience for adrenaline junkies and can even do some good for travelers that may not know what their own limits are.
If you’ve never pushed yourself to do something wacky and different, the King Swing is a safe and exciting means of trying out something you normally stray from, which may explain why it’s one of Oahu’s most popular attractions.
The Fine Print
All participants in the King Swing are required to sign a waiver, but don’t worry, this incredible attraction is extremely safe. All riders are fastened into a safety harness that hugs your body every leg of the experience. You may feel like you’re freefalling, but you’re always safe and secure.
