Orbit Tower Abseil at Olympic Park for St Clare Hospice
Sat 25 March 2017, 12:00 – 17:00 GMT
Go for GOLD at Olympic Park!
Want to get your adrenaline pumping and conquer your fear of heights? Then we have the perfect challenge for you!
Join us and take part in the UK’s highest freefall abseil from the Orbit tower in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. You can feel like an Olympic champion and help your local hospice at the same time!
Abseiling down the Orbit – the UK’s tallest sculpture – is the adrenaline-fuelled way to see London at 262 feet above the city.
Wire and Sky provides trained professional instructors who give a comprehensive safety briefing and provide all the specialist equipment required before escorting you to the upper viewing platform at the ArcelorMittal Orbit. From there, you begin an exhilarating descent to the ground, taking in breathtaking 20-mile vistas across London, including iconic buildings such as The Gherkin, St. Pauls, Canary Wharf and Wembley Stadium, as well as the world-famous sporting venues of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Please note: participants must be 16 years and over, a minimum height of 1.2m and a maximum weight of 19 stone. Please also note that you cannot take part if you are pregnant.
Registration costs £25 and we ask all participants to pledge to raise a minimum £175 in sponsorship. St Clare will have a range of time slots on offer throughout the afternoon on Saturday 25 March.
