Swings tend to bring out the kid in anyone, even the most serious of adults can't help but laugh when they get that rush from shooting their toes into the air as their hair is whipped back. Now imagine taking that kind of fun and putting it on the subway!

Some playful pranksters installed real, functional, swings inside a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) train in San Francisco.

Implications - The swings were a temporary playground for northbound travelers on the train from 24th Street Station, who had more than their fair share of fun on the ordinarily drab ride. The makeshift playground involved three matching red swings fastened to the safety bars above and created an entertaining experience for eager participants and observers alike.
