BAi360 launches group abseiling mornings

Date Posted: 16/05/2018

British Airways i360 in Brighton is now offering ‘iDrop Abseil’ mornings throughout the summer and autumn, which are suitable for groups.

iDrop Abseil makes an ideal group challenge and allows up to 20 people the opportunity to abseil down the iconic attraction and enjoy the panoramic views whilst doing so.

The activity will take visitors onto the outside of the pod which is 450ft in the air, before making their way safely down the BAi360.

Groups of 20 can book exclusive iDrop Abseil mornings and can upgrade their experience to include hire of Go-Pros plus team T-shirts and Nyetimber English sparkling wine to enjoy afterwards.

Director Iain Tindall commented: “The sheer exposure of British Airways i360 is what makes this abseil special because unlike other venues, you are descending in open space rather than against a wall. 

“And the position on the seafront makes it unique. I would challenge anyone not to feel a few nerves when faced with a 450ft drop, so even for experienced people, this will present a fearsome challenge.”

The first dates for the packages are now on sale, and group organisers can email events@britishairwaysi360.com for more details.
