Can You Do A 360 Degree Loop On A Swing Set?

The urban legend we all remember from our childhood was that It is possible to do a chain-straight 360° loop on a swingset. Did you ever try it? Well Myth Busters set out to find out if it was true. For chained swings, apparently this is a myth.

Under one’s own power it is impossible to do a chain-straight 360° loop on a school yard swing set. With help of other pushers, it is possible, although highly difficult, to do a full circle without the chain being straight. A person would need a rocket strapped to himself to do it. A dummy was set up in such a manner; the rocket was able to propel it in a chain-straight 360° loop, but the setup would be too dangerous with a real person.

However, it is possible to do a 360° loop on a rigid-arm swingset. A seventh generation circus performer confirmed the myth by doing a 360° loop while Tory, Kari and Grant observed. The others were not able to do the loop, as it consumes a lot of energy. So your childhood fantasies were not disproved, and just maybe, the youthful dream could be fulfilled…
