GIANT CANYON SWING

FORGET Thorpe Park this summer as this is a 50 mile-per-hour ride over the Colorado River CANYON. The Giant Canyon swing will throw you 1,300 feet above the Colorado River at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, America. Owner of Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, Steve Beckley, 41, admits that despite being the brains behind the operation he has only ever tried out the ride for himself on one occasion.
