Experience the most spectacular views of London whilst dangling in free space off the ArcelorMittal Orbit, 80 metres above the ground.


  • Challenge yourself on the UK’s highest free-fall abseil
  • Take in the breathtaking views, extending as far as 20 miles
  • Experience London from a different perspective as you dangle in mid air


Once you arrive at the ArcelorMittal Orbit, be signed and take the opportunity to ask questions you may have. Once signed in, meet the ground crew who will kit you up with everything you need and ensure you are safe and ready to go. You will also be asked to leave your personal belongings in the lockers provided. Upon reaching the top of the structure, abseil instructors will look after you every step of the way. You will be attached to the safety lines secured above the abseil platform via your safety equipment. Once your safety system has been checked by your abseil instructor, begin your abseiling experience. Using the safest rigging system conceivable, you will be asked to lean backwards whilst lowering yourself over the edge of the platform using your abseil device. The instructors will coax you over the edge and on your way to a truly breathtaking experience. Control the speed of your descent you can take your time to enjoy the incredible views, whilst moving towards the ground. On reaching the ground, you will be assisted by another instructor, who will disengage you from the system and help you to remove your safety equipment. You can also choose to have the whole experience recorded via a GoPro.
