The Leap of Faith
27.5m tall and 61m long, from the top of the Ziggurat the Leap of Faith catapults riders into a transparent tunnel and through a shark-filled lagoon.
Oh man, I thought this was one of those virtual models, but it is real. No way my ass ever tries something like this. With my luck, I’d somehow flip into the lagoon and feelings of joy and excitement would turn into SHEER TERROR AND THE NEED TO SURVIVE AT ALL COSTS.
WHO THINKS OF THESE THINGS? It is awesome tho.
That’s what I’m saying. Like, what is the pitch for stuff like this?
“Listen bro, I’ve been doing blow and watching Legends of the Hidden Temple reruns all day and I have got the sweetest idea for a ride. First, you build a huge-ass replica of a Mayan temple, vines and shit all up in it, and put a WATER SLIDE in the middle. THEN, surround it with a moat full of man-eating sharks and place an underwater tube going through that moat so that people have the illusion of plummeting to their death, but surviving, only to find themselves face to face with Jaws.”
“Dave, I don’t say this often, but I want to make sweet love to your brain.”
“RIGHT? Now let’s drop some acid and count cloud animals.”
It’s like if Charlie from Always Sunny was allowed to make amusement park rides.
I just need this on my blog.
