Twelve-person tire swings

Awesome party toy for dirt cheap, provided you’ve got the necessary outdoor space (and the, ah, secure 40-foot overhang). Made from used tires, wooden poles, and “a whole lot of metal bolts and cables” by Jan Körbes, these swings are suspended from the superstructure of the Mmabatho Sports Stadium in South Africa.
