Experience the most spectacular views of London with Wire & Sky, whilst dangling in free space, 80 metres above the ground!
Abseiling down the ArcelorMittal Orbit will be an experience you will never forget.
Our abseil instructors will look after you every step of the way. They will kit you up and look after every aspect of your safety. Using a triplicate safety system, they will coax you over the edge and on your way to a truly breathtaking experience.
The perfect adrenaline fuelled adventure for those who like a challenge, and a great way to view the London skyline from a different perspective.
What You'll Get
You will be greeted on arrival by a member of the abseil team who will sign you in and answer any questions you may have. They will then take you to our kit-up area where the ground crew will provide you with all the equipment you need. You'll be taken up in the lift to the top of the ArcelorMittal - 80m from the ground! Two at a time, you'll be attached to the rigging system and step over the barrier onto the abseil platform. Our instructors will guide you through the abseiling technique and coax you over the edge as you lean back and start your descent. As you lower yourself towards the ground, don't forget to take in the incredible views across London. With your feet firmly back on the ground, you be disengaged from the rigging. You'll be leaving with adrenaline still pumping through you and a great sense of achievement!
