I once got sick on the teacup ride at Disney World. I think I'll pass on this one.

According to the story, you accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in 1.2 seconds
What they don't tell you is that when you hit rock face, you go from 60 to 0 in .0001 seconds.

Wait, they want me to pay them $255 for the privilege?


True cost = $255 + one pair of clean underwear.

This looks like an Acme contraption that Wile E. Coyote would use to try catching the Road Runner. Even the landscape matches.

This sounds like the perfect way to gain publicity for a book tour.

Yeah, not sure I could do that one. Though I was a little intrigued by the "ski ramp bungee jumping" video that surfaced recently.

Surprisingly, that one was out of France.

A gift certificate would be the perfect present for many mother-in-laws.

AKA Horizontal Bungee.

I have been to Queenstown and it is truly beautiful.

AJ Hackett Bungy Sorry for Incident

In order to participate, you must be at least 13 years old and weigh at least 60 pounds (27 kg).

There should also be an upper weight limit.

And they should include free Depends for anyone over 50.

The plants below that platform are sure going to enjoy the fertilizer dropping from the sky!
