Did you enjoy sitting on a swing as a child? Have you been dying to sit on one lately but felt too grown up to do that?

The swoop swing, India’s very first (and the world’s second) at Della Adventure Resorts, has been a favourite among adventure enthusiasts since June this year. It allows 1-3 people to take a go at once, raising you to a height 30 meters with a harness. Pulling a rip cord releases you to free fall at a dizzying speed of 130kmph, before you are swung back and forth. Make sure you keep your eyes open and see the world whizzing by or you`ll miss out on the most exciting bit of the ride.

The bungee jumping station, making its entrance into the adventure resort in early August this year, has professionals from New Zealand to strap you up and run you through the safety instructions. A crane then lifts you up to a height of 45 meters from which you jump. If you`re feeling nervous about bungee jumping solo, take a tandem leap with a friend.
