Giant Swing at Skypark Sentosa review

Updated on:

If you’re an adventure seeker looking for extreme thrills in Singapore, you cannot miss the Giant Swing at Skypark Sentosa! I recently took the plummet on this wild ride and it delivered an absolutely incredible adrenaline rush.

After getting fitted with a full body harness, I walked up several flights of stairs to reach the launch platform overlooking the island and harbor. My heart pounded as I sat in the open seat and got strapped in while laying horizontally face-down.

Within seconds, I was pulled backwards and suspended 60 meters up in the air for an inverted panoramic view of the surroundings. It was breathtaking being swung up so high.

Then, without warning, I rocketed through the air in a huge pendulum arc at speeds over 100 km/hour! I screamed at the top of my lungs as the wind rushed past me.

The swing reached up to a 40-meter height on either side, giving me an insane floating sensation at the top of each swing. It felt like I was flying and free falling all at once.

All too soon, the minute-long thrill ride was over. My adrenaline was still pumping as I got unharnessed. The Giant Swing exceeded my expectations for an extreme 360 degree adrenaline rush! I’ll definitely be back here again on my next trip to brave this incredible mega swing.
