Individual Activity Descriptions

The Drop - Free-fall Experience Step off a platform in the 150ft Face of Steel and experience free-fall. This is a unique adrenaline experience, with you fully kitted in a safety harness and attached to a thin safety chord you will plummet to the ground, slowing only at the last second, so you can step safely onto the ground. This is real life leap of faith. More Information

Indoor Bungee Jump - Picture the scene: You are enveloped in semi darkness, spot lights whirl around Magna’s breathtaking structure, the Face of Steel, standing at 150 feet; you start the 143 steep climb to the jump zone music pumps out of a wall of speakers, dry ice fills the air, and 7 huge video screens project images of what you are about to experience …and that’s before you’ve even taken the plunge!

The Abyss @ Magna launched on November 9th 2005 is the UK’s scariest adrenalin experience, the WORLD’s highest indoor Bungee Jump and the only permanent Bungee Jumping facility in the UK.

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 their 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)
