THE Gravity Discovery Centre has added abseiling off the Leaning Tower of Gingin to its list of attractions.

Spacechameleon Adventure Co started providing abseiling off the 45m high tower, which has a 15-degree incline, this month.

A six-year-old girl was among the first participants to climb the 222-step structure and drop off it last weekend.

GDC chief executive Jan Devlin said the initiative aimed to attract more people to visit the centre north of Perth by creating more fun attractions.

“We’ve got the observatory which is really doing well,” she said.

“Once people get here, they realise how fun it is.

“We want to get people up, then they will be exposed to the whole centre and see how exciting it is.”

There will be a meet and greet at the centre in April with Perth YouTubers How Ridiculous, who have done several experiments at the tower, including dropping a giant dart on safes and fruit ninja stunts.

More abseiling sessions are planned this weekend, then again on March 16 and 17.

Tickets cost $25 to $40 for three abseils per participant and a minimum of 10 people need to book for sessions to go ahead.
