A new International Drive-area attraction lets you swing like a circus performer. Trapeze Federation is offering two-hour beginner classes in the flying trapeze.
"The hardest thing is climbing up that ladder," said Trapeze Federation spokeswoman Rhiannon Ellis. "Once you jump off, after your first class, you'll never feel a sense of self-accomplishment as you will in a flying trapeze class."
The first move new trapeze artists learn is called the flying knee hang.
"The point of doing this I think is really to accomplish a goal you never thought you could do in your life and really challenge yourself, to try something brand new that you never thought you could do before," said spokesperson Eric Goldberg. "You really go home and say, 'I was on a trapeze, just like in the circus.' "
