Skycoaster at Kennywood Park

Call me crazy but just by looking at this people way UP there makes me dizzy.  The Skycoaster is an attraction at Kenywood Park that  is not really a ride but a flight for those who  wants to have a thrilling  experience.  
 One to three flyers are suited in a nylon harness and then attached to the cable to pulls them, to the top of the launch tower.  
 From 180 feet above ground, riders release themselves with a parachute like ripcord...then free-fall at  approximately 75 mph!  I think, if I were one of these  people, I would be dead  when it stops hahaha.
This superman style of  attraction  will never be in my list for sure.  Just seeing how high they go  upsets my stomach lol.

I can't try that too. So afraid of heights.

Better to take photos than experience I think.

I'm probably past such adventures, but I admit to a hankering to try something like this. Here (Vancouver), during the olympics, we almost took a similar ride, but gave up because the 3-4 hour line-ups. Interesting post and fun pictures.

Dear Rose,
That height is really not for me (smile). In any case, they are great pictures of joy and happiness. Thanks for sharing my friend.
