3 Ways to Stick the Swing Set Landing

3 Ways to Stick the Swing Set Landing

September 1, 2017 0 By muckfestms

Ahhhh Swing Set, a crowd favorite at MuckFest MS® time after time. Looking at it, it seems pretty simple. You stand on it, you swing back and forth, and you jump. Easy… and seemingly not too exciting.

But, somehow, it’s so much more than that.

Quick physics lesson: swings work by turning potential energy into kinetic energy. So, the higher you go (creating more potential energy) the faster you come down (kinetic energy.) As you, the Mucker, start pumping your legs and making the platform swing, your body and balance start to feel the potential energy converting into kinetic energy… you’re literally creating a little physics experiment on our course, you muckin’ scientist!

Well anyway, all that swinging builds up a lot of adrenaline, so you may feel pumped to try something goofy and fun. Here are three ways to stick the Swing Set Landing:

  1. The Rollercoaster: ARMS UP!


  1. The Cannonball: BUTT FIRST!

  1. The Shapeshifter: LSKJANYTHINGJPSJQJ

This list could go on and on. You Muckers always get creative. And hey… the possibilities with physics are endless!
