Abseiling down Spinnaker Tower
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair, Powerchair
I wanted to abseil down the tower. I emailed to ask if I could, told them my condition, (Cerebral Palsy), and that I am unable to weight-bare. I was told that it was possible, so I booked it. I had not abseiled before so I did not know how it was going to be made accessible. When I was there, the instructors took me where I needed to go, helped me to put the sling on, and pushed the evac-chair down some stairs so I was able to get to the right exit to start abseiling. An instructor fastened herself to me, to make sure that I didn't hit my legs on the wall. With her there, it also gave me confidence in the abseil. I have now become more adventurous.
