Lucky? The lucky folks are the ones who weren’t on the swing when the chain broke.
But the memories will last a lifetime.
You beat me to the punchline!
Several years ago, I went on a tour in the Daintree rain forest in Australia. Towards the end of the tour, we were offered the chance to swing out over a valley like the one in the video in a ‘flying fox’ rig that was usually used for hang glider training. We ran out of time before my turn came; after seeing that, maybe I’m thankful O_O
In Russia, swing swings you!
Looks like a ride from Action Park!
At no extra cost!
The slow mo and the song with it . . . chefs kiss . . . perfect.
I’m sure others in engineering professions have the same FMEA/Risk register kind of thoughts I do when confronted with Thrill Rides - amplified if it’s a structure that is dismantled and assembled elsewhere on a regular basis.
Rough air ahead; we’re in for some chop.
And mitigating cost was a priority you can be sure.
