ONE of Europe’s highest -flying attractions, Sky Swing, will open at Liverpool’s Pier Head this weekend. Take a seat to swing gently over the Mersey and The Three Graces skyline at a thrilling 200 feet and marvel at the views of the UNESCO World Heritage waterfront. Having travelled all over the UK visiting the country’s top festivals, this modern observation ride presented by Ponts Amusements rides is coming to Liverpool for the very first time, becoming a headline attraction at this summer’s big family festival, The Liverpool Village. Martin O’Shea, managing director of The Liverpool Village, said: “We think the people of Liverpool will absolutely love it; it will be seen all over the city when lit at night as a new beacon for the Pier Head for the whole summer. The operator loved The Liverpool Village setting and has come directly from T in the Park to join us for the summer. Having been hugely popular across the world, we are super excited to bring it to Liverpool for everyone to enjoy simply breathtaking views.” Claudia Pont, Pont’s Amusement Rides commented: “We have first-hand experience of the North West and have introduced many first-time concepts to Liverpool, both in the city centre and throughout the city. We are delighted to now bring the Sky Swing to Liverpool Pier head, this will give a unique bird’s eye view of the City and Mersey.” What better way to conquer your fear of heights than on the tallest portable sky swing in the UK? The whole family can enjoy this new experience with an introductory offer of just £5 per person, alongside all of the other activities on offer at The Liverpool Village, such as Segway rallying, Total Wipeout, crazy golf and more than 30 other attractions. Positioned 30 metres from the river, next to the Pier Garden and directly in front of the Liver Buildings, Sky Swing is a must-see for everyone this summer and the perfect way to test your nerve. The unique and breathtaking views will more than reward you for stepping up. From this weekend the Sky Swing will be open daily, weather dependent.
