As per multiple news reports, the founders will soon introduce the giant swing in Goa as well. Tourists will have to shell out an amount of ₹3,000 for each ride. The founders said that the swing has ‘impeccable’ safety and that its costs will include transportation, photography, and videography. This project was started by the founders 5 years back but has been registered only last year. So, next time you’re in Manali, make sure you jump on this giant swing and enjoy the scenic views of the place. The founders also told the news agencies, that India has failed when it came to innovation in the adventure tourism sector. But not anymore!

Well, we can only hope that this giant swing eventually finds its place in more destinations in India and around the world for tourists to have the best adventure experience.
