ArcelorMittal Orbit Abseil Experience
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.
An ideal activity to raise money for your favourite charity or to give to a loved one as a unique present.
We operate from the beginning of April to the end of October.
What to Expect
Abseil 80 metres off the amazing ArcelorMittal Orbit sculpture.  
Wire & Sky will supply you with a safety harness and safety equipment which you will need for your Abseil. You must wear this equipment at all times during the Abseil and must not interfere with it in anyway whatsoever after it has been fitted by your Instructor. If you are uncomfortable you must notify your Instructor who will provide assistance.
Each Abseiler must be:-
• 14 years or older (with parental consent for under 18’s)
• A minimum height of 1.2 m
• A weight of less than 19 stone (120kg).
• Able to wear a harness which has a maximum width waist of [130cm] and a maximum upper thigh width of [75cm] which are the maximum measurements of our harnesses.
