What's New This Season at Grindelwald

The First Flyer gives four people the chance to simultaneously yet independently, glide through the air on a length of cable about 800 metres long, at speeds of up to 84km/h. In effect the construction is four parallel Tyroliennes, which link the starting and finishing platforms without supporting masts. Guests sit in a special harness which is very similar to that used for paragliding. The harness is attached to a safe roller mechanism.

The facility is just as suitable for use in winter as in summer and makes a spectacular addition to the other mountain activities on offer. The First Flyer is suitable for people of all ages: it will fascinate children and adults and the fact that four people can use the First Flyer at the same time highlights the attraction as a family and group experience. The dream of swishing through the air becomes reality with the First Flyer; particularly as the high speed and maximum height of 45 meters above ground will create a carefree feeling.
