Durban's massive Moses Mabhida Stadium was one of the new stadiums built for the 2010 World Cup held in South Africa, hosting seven games during the tournament.
Since the World Cup, the stadium has been used for local games of soccer and cricket, as well as live concerts and other performances. The stadium is home to a local top-league soccer team, AmaZulu.
One of the defining architectural features of the stadium is an arch that extends over the length of the field. When the stadium is not in use, visitors can ride a funicular to the top of the arch, which offers excellent views over the city of Durban. If you're an adrenaline junkie, you can also ride the Big Rush Big Swing – it's part bungee free fall, and part gigantic playground swing, hanging from the center of the stadium's arch.
Moses Mabhida Stadium is open for tours Tuesday-Sunday 12pm-1:30pm and 2pm-3:30pm. Adult tickets are 90 Rand. The SkyCar funicular to the viewing platform is open from 9am-5pm daily, and an adult ticket is 55 Rand. The Big Rush Big Swing is open Friday-Monday and Wednesday 10am-4pm, and is closed Tuesday and Thursday. Adult tickets are 695 Rand. You can also walk over the arch rather than taking the SkyCar – that's available Saturday-Sunday at 10am, 1pm, and 4pm, and adult tickets are 90 Rand.
