Experience
360° Swing


Luchadores - professional wrestlers who practice the sport of lucha libre ("free fight"), which is very popular in Mexico - wear masks depicting mythical animals, legendary heroes, or immortal gods whose identity they take on inside the ring. In a nod to the very popular Mexican sport of professional wrestling called lucha libre (or ‘free fight’), an artist wearing a luchador mask and costume climbs onto a swing. Under his own power he makes the apparatus swing higher and higher until he reaches the tipping point and the swing makes a full turn.

The Pole Dance immediately segues into the 360-degree swing... which is set up to be some kind of carnival-like side-show piece, complete with a barker and betting whether or not a luchador can take the swing all the way around. It’s probably one of the more out-of-place acts in the show, although it integrates with the pole apparatus perfectly – it’s just… bizarre! It begins and ends rather unceremoniously, almost fading away as the music for the next act begins. But no matter what I may think about this particular presentation artistically, the crowd sure loved it… they really whooped and hollered!
