Moses Mabhida Stadium
The Moses Mabhida Stadium was built for the 2010 FIFA World Cup and is one of South Africa's most picturesque stadiums. With its iconic 'arch of triumph', the waves of the Indian Ocean crashing in the background, and an amazing view of Durban's Beachfront, the stadium offers a few attractions of its own. Adventurous visitors will be able to enjoy the rush of the Big Swing, the world's only stadium swing and the largest of any kind, facilitating a jump from the stadium's arch 348 feet (106 m) above the pitch where people will swing out over the pitch and 80,000 seats below. The Sky Car is perhaps the stadium's most notable attraction which ferries up to 20 people to the stadium arch's highest point, from where they can enjoy incredible panoramic views of the city, while the Skywalk takes visitors up 550 steps of the arch and back down again. Tours of the stadium are also available.
