Take on the ultimate indoor adrenalin experience, the Awesome Foursome.
Four exciting challenges all on the same day at the Abyss, Magna Science Adventure Centre in Rotherham.
250ft zip wire
Start with the zip wire to build your confidence and prepare for the more adventurous activities facing you later. From the steps of an overhead crane, capable of lifting 100 tonnes and standing at 70ft in height, the zip wire stretches out 250ft down the length of the building. You’ll find yourself flying over old melting pots from a bygone era while spectators watch you the whole way from a parallel walkway.
Control your descent to the ground in this exhilarating 150ft free abseil*. Climb to the purpose built abseil platform, where your qualified instructor will put you at ease and set you on your way
*note – this is a free abseil meaning that you abseil into free air and not down the side of a wall.
Powerfan® is currently unique to The Abyss and the only one in the world from 150ft high. It is a highly engineered machine that is able to provide the freefall adventure of your life that safely, and repeatedly, controls a person’s descent dissipating the potential energy by means of a fan. Fully kitted in a safety harness and attached to the Powerfan’s chord, you will step off the platform and make a rapid descent towards the floor before the fan system above you kicks in ensuring you float to a soft landing.
Picture the scene: you are enveloped in semi darkness while spotlights whirl around Magna’s breathtaking 'Face of Steel', standing at 150 feet. You start the 143-step climb to the jump zone and music pumps out , dry ice fills the air, and seven huge video screens project images of what you are about to experience …and then you take the plunge.
