Extreme Durban: The Big Swing at Moses Mabhida Stadium
We wish we’d seen this earlier! After building a makeshift rope swing in the back garden once and failing miserably, we pretty much gave up on the idea of participating in anything extreme… until now!
Thanks to the bungee swing at Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium, even vertically challenged peeps like us can be the envy of thrill seeking adventure travellers the world over. Not only is this extreme Durban attraction the only stadium swing on earth, it also holds the Guinness Record for the World’s Tallest Swing. Now that’s an achievement!

About Big Rush Urban Adrenaline
Also known as the Big Rush, the Moses Mabhida Stadium swing has been giving new meaning to Durban flights since 2010. The adventure begins on your arrival at Moses Mabhida Stadium where you will report to the Big Rush Stadium Shop. Here you will sign an indemnity waiver form before being taken through the basic safety precautions.
Next up, you will be fitted into a full body harness that will allow you to try a quick technique demo in the practice area. A short walk to the stadium arch and your harness will be attached to the safety line. Your jump will take place at ‘ladder rung 4’ – you will be assisted down the ladder onto the platform by the Big Rush Jump Crew, who will also ensure that you are ready to go (i.e. not having second thoughts).
As a jumper, you are secured by ropes and harnesses, before taking the plunge into the huge void over the pitch, and then swinging out up to 220 metres under the famous arch of the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
The rest of your time post-jump is spent reliving the experience – jumps are recorded and screened at the Base Café that is situated within the Big Rush Stadium Shop, and you can purchase your own recording to watch again later once the rush has worn off.
If you’re a daredevil, bucket list type then make sure you check out Big Rush Urban Adrenaline at the Moses Mabhida Stadium next time you’re in Durban. Remember to dress comfortably, and ladies… avoid wearing dresses or skirts.
