Would you dare to take a ride? Chinese scenic spot has built a cliff-side 'super swing' which stands 30 storeys tall and faces a 2,300ft drop
A Chinese scenic spot has built a huge swing on the edge of a 2,300-foot-tall cliff and is planning to apply for the world record of the largest swing.
The arch of the extreme ride is a whopping 328 feet tall, roughly the equivalent of a 30-storey-tall building.
According to the Guinness World Records, the current tallest swing in the world measures 88 metres (288 feet 8 inches) from the seat to the top of the crossbar.
It was constructed by B!g Rush in Durban, South Africa, on 14 May 2011.
The vertigo-inducing ride in Chongqing, China, can catapult thrill-seekers over the cliff at a top speed of 80 miles per hour, according to its engineer at a scenic spot.
Latest footage of the swing rocking back and forth over the river valley has caused a sensation on social media in China.
The drone video, first uploaded to short-video app Douyin, recorded a technical test of the swing on April 29, the photographer, Zhou Quan, told MailOnline.
An employee at the scenic spot said workers put a crash test dummy on the swing at the time because 'so far nobody has been brave enough to give it a try'.
The terrifying attraction was completed late last year and meant to open to the public early this year.
However, due to the coronavirus outbreak and the subsequent lockdown, the management had to delay the grand opening and is yet to announced a new opening date.

They have an infinite amount of money whilst our economy will be in recession within the next couple of months because of their barbaric wet markets and their obsession with eating everything that moves.
