Colin Furze Built a 9.5m Tall 360 Swing With a 25kg Counter Weight

At this point, we’ve written so many articles on the inventions of Colin Furze, I’m not even going to list them out.

Simply search within the site for “Colin Furze” to see his previous work we’ve covered.

Furze’s latest creation is something every child always dreamed they would have in their back yard growing up, a massive 360 swing.

And by 360 swing, I mean the thing, which stands 9.5m above the ground, flips you around in circles leaving you hanging upside down a few seconds, sometimes before the counter weight and propulsion system takes over.

The propulsion comes from a paramotor while the 25kg will swing you round and round until you’re nauseous.

I do have one glaring question about the 360 swing: How did the neighbors react then they saw some dude out the 3rd-floor window hanging upside down?
