Oh He** No! LOL
That looks sooooo cool! "
Would I ride it .... nooooo! lol
It looks like at least 6 different kinds of bad ideas to me.
NO, no and NO
And we knew that already!
Roller coasters are thrilling, but there is virtually no risk that you will get injured or killed. After you do a few extreme activities where there is no guarantee of safety, roller coasters and other thrill rides at amusement parks are really no big deal - i.e., surfing catamarans in large surf[video=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWBvVedo9QU&index=1&list=PLep2W3cQtQX1B5-6QkzDgxHRY-moxRnxT]
That's not me, but I've done a bunch of similar stuff
Well, I'm not sure about no risk on roller coasters. I was a ride operator at Six Flags Over Texas, and I'm gonna say there is some risk. Last year (I no longer worked there at this point) a woman was killed on the Texas Giant. She flew right out of her seat on the drop at the beginning. I road that coaster as well, ONCE. I swore I would never ride it again because it felt like I was flying out of my seat on the drop as a matter of fact.But I get what you're saying. Plus I KNOW you have done some extreme stuff and survived even more extreme stuff. I imagine that might make roller coasters seem silly to you.But I can assure you - they are not risk free.
Something I always told myself was that these amusement parks have millions and millions of dollars to make their rides completely safe and so I felt comfortable riding the rides at the ones I have actually been to. But there are those freak accidents like the one Sookie mentioned (I remember reading about that one) and another I remember one where a girls legs were chopped off by a wire. That may not have been ride related but was due to faulty equipment. (can't remember the exact story)"
And with that being said, if I had to make a choice between riding that new ride or wing suit diving or catamaran surfing, I'd ride the ride.
I'm hangin' with a bunch of wimps!
I can think of worse ways to go - for example..... [video=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYhT6FHEpwY]
