This can be the most exciting swing in the world.
Employees in China have a huge & # 39; super swing & # 39; built equal to the height of a 30-storey building, on the edge of a cliff, 700 meters above the ground.
The dizziness-inducing ride can catapult thrill seekers across a river valley at a top speed of 80 miles per hour, according to his engineer, at a scenic spot in Chongqing.
Tourists can enjoy the swing ride in Chongqing, China from January 1 next year
The chief engineer has assured the public the safety of the structure. The swing would have undergone security checks for four months and could withstand a magnitude 10 earthquake
As a city known for its crazy architecture, Chongqing is already home to a huge rocking chair that is built on a 1000-foot high cliff.
However, the new complete structure is larger, faster and narrower.
As part of the Yunyang Longgang Scenic Spot, the huge ride consists of a 30-meter high arch and a 354-meter high launch tower, and is located at an altitude of 3608 feet.
The & # 39; rocking chair & # 39; is connected to the arc by two cables that are also 354 feet long.
Thrill seekers, up to three at a time, are lifted by a rope on the launch tower before being thrown away at high speed.
Instead of being stuck to chairs, tourists will have to behave side by side horizontally before they ride the white knuckles.

Chief engineer Shi Xuebin said the swing could reach a maximum angle of 90 degrees above the ground, or 230 feet from the edge of the cliff.
The engineer has assured the safety of the machine to the public.
The swing has undergone four months of safety checks and can withstand an earthquake of magnitude 10 and strong wind with gusts of wind up to 103 miles per hour, according to the engineer.
& # 39; Tourists must wear safety clothing that is certified by the European Union. And to provide them with additional protection, we've added custom-made seat belts to the outside of the clothing, & said Mr. Shi.
The construction of the swing is complete and the attraction will open on January 1, 2020.
Adventurous residents of Chongqing are spoiled for choice when it comes to extreme rides.
The Wansheng Ordovician city park does not have one, but five huge swings, as well as a glass bottom walkway, 390 feet above the ground.
The last swing of the park opened last year and was built over a fall of 1000 feet.
The swing is attached to a beam as high as 59 feet – the equivalent of a six-story building.
According to a spokesperson, 4,000 people come to the park every day to experience the unique swings.
