The Giant Swing (ジャイアントスイング) is the seventh obstacle of the First Stage, introduced in SASUKE 26. The competitor must jump from a springboard to a giant bar which swings to the net much like a trapeze. It proved to be much easier than its notable counterpart, the Slider Jump, as only one competitor (Adam Truesdell) failed it.
