The tallest sculpture in the United Kingdom, the ArcelorMittal Orbit cuts an imposing figure in the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at a stunning 115 metres in height. It became a symbol of the 2012 London Olympics, but that's not all. It's also home to our nation's highest freefall abseil! Ascend to a platform a staggering 80 metres up and take in the breathtaking views over the capital whilst being attached to the specially-designed safety system by expert Wire and Sky staff. Then take a deep breath, lean back and abseil down without touching anything until the ground is reached. Relish the scary yet exhilarating feeling of being mid-air and marvel at views of the Gherkin, St. Paul's, the O2 Arena and more on the way down.

In a Nutshell
  • Ascend to new heights above the Olympic Park
  • Abseil down the UK's tallest sculpture
  • Take in views from 80m above London
  • Freefall abseil without touching anything
