Look out over London together from the UK's tallest sculpture
Freefall abseil down from 80m without touching anything
Marvel at unrivalled views over the capital's skyline
Located in London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
At 115 metres, the ArcelorMittal Orbit is officially London's tallest sculpture and a symbol of the London 2012 Olympics. Located in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, it's a fantastic addition to the capital's skyline and architecture, but there's more to it - it's also home to our nation's highest freefall abseil! Ascend to the platform 80 metres up and together, take in amazing views over the capital while expert Wire and Sky staff fit each participant with specially designed safety systems. Then it's time to take the plunge side by side on parallel lines - lean back and abseil down without touching anything, all the way to the ground. Not for the faint hearted but truly thrilling, this high flying experience for two is truly once in a lifetime.
