Itinerary

You will be greeted on arrival by a member of the abseil team who will sign you in and answer any questions you may have. They will then take you to our kit-up area where the ground crew will provide you with all the equipment you need. You'll be taken up in the lift to the top of the ArcelorMittal Orbit - 80m from the ground! Two at a time, you'll be attached to the rigging system and step over the barrier onto the abseil platform. Our instructors will guide you through the abseiling technique and coax you over the edge as you lean back and start your descent. As you lower yourself towards the ground, don't forget to take in the incredible views across London. With your feet firmly back on the ground, you be disengaged from the rigging. You'll be leaving with adrenaline still pumping through you and a great sense of achievement!

An bbsolutely exhilarating experience! I completed this challenge with a friend for charity. We were both terrified but the instructors were so reassuring and professional, they instilled the confidence in us to complete the challenge and enjoy it. You guys made our day, thank you so much you were beyond brilliant 👏

A fabulous experience. Jermaine and Ozzy kitted us out and they were great; really friendly, smiley and chatty, yet efficient at the same time. Then Matt and his female co-worker at the top were just as friendly and reassuring explaining each step of the process clearly and slowly. The whole set up felt very safe and professional. I abseiled with a friend and we both had a go-pro, which was great as we could share each other's footage afterwards. Fantastic views and a great experience, enhanced by the expert team that looked after us. Thank you :)

This was my first time abseiling, and it was a great introducing to the activity. Despite having done similar activities like zip lining and jumping off skyscrapers, abseiling is much more technical and there is quite a bit that the participant needs to take in, especially first timers. I felt that the process of starting the abseil was a little rushed. Based on my experience, staff at similar activities are normally much more patient with customers and tell them to take their own time to progress through the steps. The should realise that there is a lot of information for first timers to take in. Nevertheless, the staff were very friendly, cheerful and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to do this again and have recommended it to others.

I had an amazing time at the london abseil. It was an amazing experience. All the guys there were amazing. Kuddos to Jermaine and ozzy who got me in and out of gear and made sure I was well suited up for the experience. Mathew was great and did a splendid job explaining all the steps i needed to follow at the top and he guided me off on my way safely as well. Shawn was amazing as well. It was great being part of her first day on the job. She rocked it. Thank you all for giving and creating an amazing experience for me at the london abseil. I'll be sure to visit again one I'm back in london( skip getting the go pro- go pro shows the view not the abseiler). ---- vincent.

Such great fun! Was on my bucket list before 75th birthday. The whole experience was fantastic. Very slick process from start to finish. The staff were tremendous and I have to give a shout out to the two lads who kitted us out - Ozzie and Germaine - they were really charming. The girl and guy at the top (apologies, forgotten your names) who lowered us off were professional to a T and very encouraging. The views are tremendous, it was a bright and clear day so we could see to the horizon. I felt completely safe during the whole experience. Highly recommended.

It was fun…basically a slow descent from the top of the structure. The activity itself didn’t take that long, but quite a bit of standing around waiting. Nice views from the top.

We had a great time. The oldest was 83 then 82 then 77. The youngest was 54. It's an exhilarating experience and it's good to put yourself outside of your comfort zone. What a unique thing to do. Grab the family and do it together although it's a bit pricey.

Firstly, I’m and scared of heights!!! Very scared! But I did this. This was originally a birthday present for my daughters 18th but it got cancelled and changed a number of times due to covid and weather. We got a half price discount so I joined her (now 19!). We were kitted up on the ground. This was great as I was not watching people go before me and not hanging (no pun intended!) about waiting. The ground team were fabulous. So calming and reassuring. They carefully explained how secure everything was as we got into the harness. We then went up in the lift. Luckily it is closed so you can’t see the height. At the top I didn’t look down as I already had jelly legs! My daughter was happy pointing landmarks out with my mum. We had a very short wait while two people ahead went down. When it was our go. I could feel a bit of panic… However, the guys were amazing! They again just talked through very patiently everything as we did it. I just totally focused on what I was told and his face! So I didn’t look down. The next thing I realised I was already leaning out over the edge! I felt safe and secure. I followed the calm instructions and did everything they said. I did it! My daughter was so chilled the entire descent. We both hired go pros! This was a real bargain. The footage is really clear and we were able to capture everything. This was such a fantastic experience I have been recommending constantly. “If I can do it you can too!!”
