The Abyss @ Magna launched on
Zip Wire - The Zip Wire is great for those unsure of adrenalin activities, or for building the confidence of those wanting to progress to more adventurous activities later. With a minimum level of instruction required the Zip Wire is a perfect way of including participants from all backgrounds. Starting from the steps of an old overhead crane capable of lifting 100 tonnes and standing at 70ft in height, the Zip Wire stretches out 250ft down the length of Magna, you’ll find yourself flying over old melting pots from a bygone era while spectators watch you the whole way from a parallel walkway.
Abseil - Abseiling is an extremely exhilarating and testing activity requiring the participant to control there own descent to the ground. Climbing the steps in Magna’s 150ft Face of Steel Building can be a daunting challenge in itself, however once at our purpose built abseil platform our qualified instructor will put you at ease and explain the principles involved before setting 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 - The POWERFAN® is currently unique to The Abyss being the only one in the world from this height. Powerfan is a highly engineered machine that is able to provide the freefall adventure of your life; it is a device that will safely and repeatedly control a person’s descent, dissipating the potential energy by means of a fan. With you fully kitted in a safety harness and attached to the Powerfan’s chord, in essence it enables you to step off the platform high up in the150ft face of steel building and make a very rapid descent towards the floor before the fan system above you kicks in ensuring you float to a soft landing.
