The concept is something like a diving board suspended  from two points overhead so that - when it swings - the board stays horizontal to the  ground. You may have seen this apparatus used in Cirque du Soleil!

You stand on the front of the platform, work up a swing and then launch yourself into space at the apex of the swing to see how far you can jump. A series of colored horizontal tubes serves as targets so you and your friends can easily see who won.

There is a small platform on the front of the swing platform that you stand on to swing and this is a tilt release for the disc brakes. Only then can the swing be moved. As you leap, the platform lifts, the disc brake is engaged and instantly bring the platform to a stop at the bottom. Thus, if the leap is short or if you somehow fall off, the swing has become motionless at that point and presents no danger.

Features and Variations

THE LAUNCHER
The Launcher requires anchors in the ground to hold the frame in place as people swing. There is a design for an anchor-less version - just ask.

How high you can jump depends on the size of the frame. If you have adrenaline junkies as your target market - talk to us about building and Adrenaline Model to suit your purposes.

THE MINI LAUNCHER
The Mini Launcher also requires anchorage but the forces are much less so an anchor-less version is easier.

The Mini Launcher is made to a size that is kid-friendly with padding all around the platform in case of falls. Is it dangerous for kids? Less so than the swings in a park where there is no Kushion to catch them if they fall.
