Attraction Information

Exprience the UK's highest free-fall abseil from the ArcelorMittal Orbit, in the heart of London's Olympic Park.

You control the speed of your descent, so enjoy the breathtaking skyline of London from one of the most unique locations in the city.

Join the ranks of our brave adventurers and dangle in free space, 80m above the ground, creating lasting memories with family and friends or raising money for a special cause.

One of our highly-trained team will greet you upon arrival and answer any questions you may have, and give you a wristband with a QR code so you can access photos afterwards. Your guide will assist you with your safety equipment and then you'll be taken up to the top of the ArcelorMittal Orbit ready for your descent!

Our instructors will check your harness and you'll be attached to the safety lines secured above the abseil platform. You will be asked to lean backwards whilst lowering yourself over the edge of the platform using your abseil device. As you continue downwards, your abseil instructor will keep control of your safety line. Your abseil device uses friction to slow your descent but some physical effort will be required too!

Once past the abseil platform, you will dangle in the air suspended by your abseil line, which is backed-up by two safety lines. As you control the speed of your descent, you can take your time to enjoy the incredible views of some London’s most iconic structures, whilst moving towards the ground.

Upon arrival back on the ground, another guide will unclip you from the system and help you to remove your safety equipment. You'll have the opportunity to view and purchase any pictures taken via the QR code on your wrsitband.
