It’s in Las Vegas by the way, in case the Spanish had you thinking it was in Spain or S.America.  Just had an email from my friend to say that her daughter has been on all three rides but No.1 son decided not to bother. Wise man. Needlesss to say, I shall not be accepting her invitation to give it a whirl.

Here’s a youtube of the ride:

    Then I shall sit back and wait while the Health & Safety officials have a collective nervous breakdown.

    if you are of a nervous disposition do not watch this –

    Fun to see on my monitor, but no way I’d even stand there to watch in the flesh. Let alone ride! Remember No Guts, No GORY!

    It probably comes down to trust. Do you trust the mechanism not to be flawed. I’d not trust it one inch and that would induce the fear. The ex g-f took the attitude that these things never break, that people are constantly taking the rides and as she’s naturally game, she goes on them.

    Like you, I wouldn’t.
