Giant Swing (ジャイアントスイング) is a First Stage obstacle originally introduced in SASUKE 26 to replace Circle Slider as the seventh obstacle, however, it was relocated to the third position in SASUKE 27. Competitors must jump from a springboard to grab a giant bar and swing that bar to reach the cargo net, before climbing up or down the cargo net to reach the platform in a similar fashion to Slider Jump.

The obstacle proved easy, as only one competitor, Adam Truesdell, failed on this obstacle. However, it served very efficiently as a time waster, as some competitors like Kawahara Takuya and Morikami Daisuke would later time out at Rope Ladder, with some competitors like Paul Kasemir and Lee En-Chih almost timing out too.

In SASUKE 27, the obstacle got minor modification, as the net was removed, meaning competitors now must reach a giant angled platform. The modification and the fact it was attempted earlier than the previous tournament gave this version a worse clear rate than the original version, eliminating twelve competitors, including Hioki Masashi and Enokido Hayato.

Due to Urushihara Yuuji's second Kanzenseiha in SASUKE 27, this obstacle was replaced by the relocated Spin Bridge in the following tournament.
