Now this looks like a blast! A propeller-driven aircraft (of sorts) that swings on a suspended 200 meter tether. You control the throttle and steering. And people can hear your screams of delight for miles down the canyon.

It’s your own personal roller coaster, and this one’s got a throttle!

A little steep, price-wise; $139NZ (about $95US) for a 25 minute ride. Spectators pay $29 a head. But that’s got to be a rush!

I wonder if anyone could pull this off in the US. Please?
