    $13 admission if you walk up with $7 rerides is very reasonable.

    The website says 45mph (not 60) which is still insane.

    I have no idea if he was holding that or not. If you drop that, you could seriously hurt someone!

    Speaking of that, what happens if you unfortunately "lose your lunch" on the ride...?

    I think the area under the ride is clear and fenced so you are in the building before you board. Not like I will ever find out. This and the slingshot are just no for me

    The fact the phone kept recording even after it smashed into the ground from 450 up is insane.

    Surprised they didn't add netting around the area.

    It only had a scratch on it with no protective case either? Apple could make this video infamous.

    Going up that high and swinging at 60 mph - there’s no reason they should’ve ever allowed phones on the ride
