Playground swings are pretty fun as far as playground attractions go, but let’s face it – they’re vanilla. Luckily, the Swing at the End of the World located at La Casa Del Arbol (The Treehouse) in Baños, Ecuador has solved that problem by hanging a long swing at the height of a steep drop-off with a gorgeous mountain view.

The swing’s unique location 2,600 meters above sea level offers visitors a beautiful and terrifying view of the Tungurahua Volcano. Although it might look like it hangs over a cliff, the swing actually just hangs over a steep slope. Either way, falling would probably mean death, but that doesn’t stop adventurous swingers from giving the swing at the end of the world a go. And it’s probably worth it, because the rush of adrenaline, the feeling of freedom, and the amazing surrounding views must be one-of-a-kind.

Besides the death-defying swing (we say this because of the bar holding it up, which looks a bit thin from here), La Casa Del Arbol is a great place to hike and enjoy the views even if you don’t feel like scaring yourself to death.

(Editor’s note: Vanilla is a perfectly fine flavor. It’s just an expression)
