ARCELORMITTAL ORBIT THE ABSEIL EXPERIENCE Welcome to the ArcelorMittal Orbit Abseil. You will experience a thrilling 80 metre free-fall abseil from a dedicated platform high on the ArcelorMittal Orbit sculpture. The experience will involve abseiling from the 80 metre high abseil platform down to the ground. This is described as a “free-fall” abseil as you will not touch anything once you have moved below the abseil platform, until you touch the ground.

THE ABSEIL EXPERIENCE You will be attached to the safety lines secured above the abseil platform via your safety equipment. Once your safety system has been checked by your abseil instructor, you will begin your abseil. You will be asked to lean backwards whilst lowering yourself over the edge of the platform, using your abseil device. This may cause you to feel apprehensive. You will continue downwards whilst your abseil instructor keeps control of your safety line. Your abseil device uses friction to slow your descent but some physical effort will be required to control the device.
