Ever wondered how your life might have turned out if you’d been bitten by a radioactive spider on a field trip to a science exhibit? Well, thanks to perennial daredevil Jochen Schweizer and his bungee-jumping-meets-abseiling House Running brainchild, you need wonder no more.
Perched atop the Park Inn, and strapped back and waist to a (thankfully) sturdy pulley system, your house run can only commence once you’ve leaned fully out, parallel with the ground, over a drop that would make Spiderman shit his pants. And once that bit’s over it’s a mere run/tentative walk/graceless slide (depending on how daring you’re feeling) over 100 feet of plate glass back to solid ground. All-in-all an experience to set your spider senses tingling. Probably worth a trip to the toilet beforehand then.
