WHY ABSEIL THE ORBIT?
Charity abseils down London’s ArcelorMittal Orbit – the tallest sculpture in the UK- are perfect for adventurous fundraisers eager to enjoy the ultimate urban adventure experience while raising lots of money for their favourite causes.
The 114-metre tall tower, which is located in the heart of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, has become one of the city’s most recognised landmarks since opening as part of the 2012 London Olympics.
It’s the ideal, high profile location for a charity event and it’s sure to capture the imagination of your colleagues, friends and family.
Fearless fundraisers will be able to take in unrivalled 20-mile views across the city and beyond as they step outside the tower’s viewing platform before embarking on their dramatic 80-metre descent.
It’s an unforgettable experience and one which will not only encourage donations but also provide you with lifelong memories.
Tens of thousands of pounds have been raised for charities from people deciding to undertake this thrilling and unique abseil – Will you be next?
Our eldest customer is Walter Parish who abseiled in May 2017 at the age of 91 for his chosen charity Isabel Hospice (featured above).
Celebrities that have abseiled with us include Emma Bunton from the Spice Girls and Jamie Theakston in aid of Global Radio’s Make Some noise campaign live on Heart Radio.
“I would also like to pass on a huge thanks to the team at the top of the abseil. I understand from some of my participants, that they were somewhat paralyzed with fear but the team were calm and very supportive ensuring that all of them completed the abseil and they were not rushed to get going. Sorry for the people behind us as it did take us a long time but it will have raised a good amount of awareness and funds for the association."

HOW IT WORKS
On a clear day it is possible to have stunning 20-mile views across London, before you abseil for charity 80 metres down from the iconic ArcelorMittal Orbit sculpture.
Our staff will look after you every step of the way, making sure you feel confident and reassured.
This is definitely a ‘daredevil’ experience and a major challenge to raise money for a worthwhile cause – we will support you and ensure it’s an unforgettable experience which you will cherish forever.
The charity abseil utilises the safest triplicate rigging systems available and Wire & Sky have painstakingly designed and installed the experience to ensure maximum fun in a safe and controlled environment.
The whole experience will take an hour and you will be put together in groups of up to five who will set off every 30 minutes; so feel free to bring along a friend or book a larger group in.
Wire & Sky is the UK’s leading urban aerial adventure company. In addition to the ArceloMittal Orbit abseil they also offer participants the opportunity to climb to the summit of the O2 Arena and zip line across the legendary pitch at Wembley Stadium.
