The Swing At The End Of The World Lets You Swing 2,600 Meters Above Sea Level

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)

If the Swing had bags with a parachute in it for you to use if you really fell then, Fine! I'll go.
