I took my two sons on this "swing", apparantly the longest of it's type. It has a drop of 100m , reaching a speed of 120km/hrin 2.3 secs. They asked me if I wanted to jump, and I replied "somebody has to take the photos"

The weather was grey and drizzling, so the light was not marvellous, however, I managed to get some of the action.

If my sons did this I wouldn't want to know about it, much less take pictures. I'd be a nervous wreck. Nevertheless, the first shot is good and he looks like he enjoyed himself.

Thanks for looking in guys - i know they're not fantastic shots due to weather and position - I have added a merge of 3 pics just to show the height of the fall [although there is still a bit more after at the bottom, These are taken when they winched my second son back up
