SCAD Tower Free Fall



Here’s the simplest idea for a theme park ride yet. In fact, it’s not even a “ride” at all, unless you count the elevator trip up. The Sky Tower in Tivoli Friheden, Denmark, is an actual free fall, with no ropes or kill switch. You go up 100 feet, get strapped into a safety harness just for the short time it takes to get from the platform to a hang oner the edge, then the harness is unhooked. It takes a mere second to get back down. Guaranteed to cure you of ever thinking about what it would be like to jump from a building. This video shows the experience from all angles.

To be pedantic, I think the fall would take 2.5 seconds. Regardless, you're not getting me on that thing.
