This Terrifying Footage From Utah Will Make Your Stomach Drop

Now that the weather in Utah is warming up, don’t you feel like getting outside and playing?

The group of people on this video, shot by Devin Graham (aka devinsupertramp) sure are having a blast. It’s a sunny day at Corona Arch in Moab, and they’re playing on the “World’s Largest Rope Swing.” The free fall is 130 feet, stopping about 10 feet from the ground. The return on the back swing is  another 100 feet or so. I think you’ll agree that it’s definitely the world’s best (and scariest) rope swing.

In January, 2015, the BLM put a 2-year ban on “rope activities” at both Corona Arch and Gemini Bridges. While the swing look pretty cool, it detracts considerably from the atmosphere and bothers many visitors.

 
Check out this behind-the-scenes video, too!

While your spring plans won’t include building a rope swing on Corona Arch, it’s definitely a great time to visit Moab!
