Before I jumped on a plane to Bali I’d already seen pictures of the Bali Swing on Instagram. However when I asked about it while in Ubud, it turned out that The Bali Swing was not known by everyone. You can use a swing in Bali on various spots, yet my aim was to swing above the gorge as seen on pictures, not just somewhere in the middle of the rice fields. And so I jumped into a taxi that took me to The Bali Swing, located just about a 30 minute drive from Ubud. Upon arrival I found out that it had only been opened a few months earlier, so it wasn’t a coincidence that not everyone yet knew about it.
 
My travel companion and I receive a warm welcome upon arrival at The Bali Swing. We are asked to sign a waiver and are then introduced to the concept. After paying a 35 US Dollar entrance fee, you get to stay as long as you want. You can use all four swings as many times as you like, eat your heart out at the Balinese buffet and grab non-alchoholic drinks from the fridge.
 
At first glance, The Bali Swing looks like a playground for adults. As it’s already half way during the afternoon, I first decide to have some lunch and mentally prepare myself for swinging above a deep gorge. I’ve actually heard people scream before because you will really be right above the gorge and it’s not just your average playground swing. The first swing is for warming up, you will face towards the restaurant so you will get used to the feeling of being on a huge swing and do not immediately look into the gorge. You still will be secured though and an employee of The Bali Swing will push you. Anyone accompanying you will be able to take as many pictures as they want, from the positions they want. Which is awesome since there are no hidden costs in buying pictures or videos afterwards…
