Suit up, tie in, and rappel down the side of a 17-story building in La Paz, part of a unique 1-hour adventure that blends extreme sports with a surreal game of dress-up. Choose your costume — channel Captain America, Batman or Santa Claus — then learn the basics of safety and technique. Watch traffic rush by below you as you rappel backwards out the window, or try head-first ‘rap jumping’ for the 164-foot (50-meter) descent.

What To Expect
After choosing your costume, (superheroes, bacon, mario, duffman, you name it!) Our experienced guides help you put on the harnesses and other safety equipment. Once ready we give detailed instructions and a demonstration of how to participate in the activity. We then let you practice on our small wall inside our premises. You can practice as many times as you want until you feel comfortable and competent to take on the big wall.
One of your guides will go down first to show you what it's all about. 2 other guides will help get you in the system, always double chekcing all points. There are 2 ropes in our system, and 3 brakes. You have your own brake and the guides have 2 others, so it is 100% safe. At the edge you begin your descent as you lean out the door with 50m of adrenaline beneath you. Small steps at first give way to hops and jumps as you gain confidence and speed. About 20 m from the bottom your guides stop you for the ultimate rush - Free fall! Let go, jump and try not to scream! We highly recommend going twice as the 2nd time around you can go even faster and with more confidence. 100% safe, 100% fun, 100% adrenaline! Book now!
