About the Blackout Bungee and Spooky Swing

When: Spooky Swing - 29 October 2021

Would you like to face your fears this Halloween? Then scare yourself silly with this spooktacular thrill seeker event! 

Take on our Spooky Swing or Blackout Bungee this Halloween and push yourself to the limits by plunging into darkness for older people in Scotland! 

Over 200,00 older people can go up to one week without talking to a single person. By taking part in in one of our Halloween events you will be raising vital funds for lonely and isolated older people who during the dark winter nights when the days get shorter feel even more lonely. Every £5 you raise will enable us to call an older person particularly during the long winter nights.

Spooky Swing
The Highland Fling Bridge Swing is the UK's first permanent bridge swing, suspended 40 metres above the River Garry in Perthshire. Rigged in a full body harness they quickly release you from above dropping into a freefall of around 15 metres before the rope takes the slack. You then accelerate through an arc and under the bungee platform. Once the swing is over you will be winched back up whilst the adrenaline pumps through your veins! A safe and unforgettable spooktacular experience using the latest technology and safety equipment, led by qualified Bridge Swing Masters.

Whether you are a free spirit, thrill seeker or outdoor enthusiast and aged 10 and up this event is for you. We'd love you to take on the Spooky Swing. Restrictions apply, see terms & conditions
