Power Fan Descender

The ultimate rush

The most extreme challenge at Gripped - base-jumping without the parachute! Free-fall from the very top of a 24-metre tower attached to our gravity defying Power Fan descender restraint system, which will use your own body weight to allow you to land softly on the ground.

Test your nerve as you step off the tower, and experience the ultimate adrenaline rush...
