The Giant Swing

Situated in the trees of Volunteer Field are our not one, but two Giant Swings. What exactly is a Giant Swing? A Giant Swing consists of cables that are attached to two trees to form a Y shape, the bottom of the Y is where the swinger gets clipped in. Once the swinger's harness is clipped into the cable hanging from the two trees, the swinger is clipped into a rope that goes to the top of a third tree. A pull team will pull on the rope to hoist the swinger up to their desired height (up to 60 feet) and then when the swinger is ready they release themselves from the rope into their swing!
