Flying trapeze


Challenge: Flying trapeze catch

Details: At a one-off session or a course, mere mortals can try their hand at flying trapeze in the centre of London. A team of trapeze artists take you through the safety and the steps to swinging on a trapeze bar. Clipped in via a harness, you’re up the ladder, off the platform and swinging before you know it. While a fear of heights will play a part, you will surprise yourself at how much progress you make in the two-hour session.
