Weeeeeee: The World’s Biggest Swing! [Video]

Ladies and gentlegeeks, behold the world’s largest swing:

AJ Hackett Bungy’s Nevis Swing, the most fun you will have in New Zealand!!! Do it TANDEM with a mate, alone, upside down, forwards, backwards, truck and trailer, 69. The World’s Biggest Swing, right beside the Nevis Bungy in the Nevis canyon.

The swing is located in Queenstown, New Zealand, and will drop you 70-meter down while making you travel through a 300-meter arc. Now can anyone tell me why each time we see cool outdoor stuff like this online, they’re always located in NZ?

  1. That question is easy: there's very strict (and very low) limits on personal injury claims in NZ, so adventure sports like this flourish with cheap insurance costs.

  2. It is the insurance thing, but it's the fact that the government run insurance covers foreign nationals and is close to a no-fault system. I have crossed the Tasman to race mtbs in NZ and I can do that without a bazillion dollars of private insurance. NZ – the world's favourite place to take crazy risks.

  3. 69; hmm, scary in itself if sphincters blow from fright.

    If I had the wherewith-all, New Zealand would be home-away-from home.
