Hangloose Eden Project in Cornwall UK had a very special visit to test out the all new adventure attractions: Michael ‘’Eddie’’ Edwards, AKA Eddie the Eagle who is well known for competing in the ski jump competition at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Canada. Eddie, who earned his name by soaring like an eagle in the sky, was strapped with a harness before being dropped almost 20 metres high onto the 15×15 BigAirBag® Revolution without his trusted skis. Luckily, the airbag provided a smooth landing for Britain’s most loveable ski jumper.
Check out the video below to see him in action!
The 53-year-old former athlete added: ‘’I’m always up for a dare, always up for a challenge’’.
The crazy stunt is open to public and everyone can experience falling backwards on the airbag. Hangloose Eden Project also operates England’s longest and fastest zipwire.
