Haha that looks fun.

When I go to Vegas in July my cousin and I plan on either taking a heroic dose of mushrooms or dropping some Lucy and go on this ride at the stratosphere, either way it's gunna be intense imo.

I've done the coaster that goes around the edge and the one that shoots you up. Those were the only 2 they had when I was there.


And those dumbasses in the first video obviously didn't know shit about fall lines.

(Tourist Dies After Falling Into An Abyss Inside Inflatable Ball)




Y'know what they say? When you die falling into the abyss, the abyss dies falling into you! :rofl2:
(Sorry, I had to get that Nietzsche joke in there)

This video really intrigued/horrified me. That's gotta be a nightmare.
But it wasn't really an abyss he fell into, more of just a large mountain slope/cliff. He died of a broken nack and spine.


I googled this, and found this article, which was interesting and a little funny with the Jackie Chan part.


His friend has got to feel so happy to be alive but also maybe a little guilty that his friend died, not that he should.

Quote:

A thrill-seeker died when the giant inflatable Zorb ball he was riding in with a pal plunged over a cliff.

Married dad-of-two Denis Burakov, 27, broke his neck and spine after the sphere veered off course and began rolling down a mountain.

Amazingly Vladimir Shcherbakov, 33, escaped with concussion, cuts and bruises.

The friends' harrowing death ride plunge, in the Caucasus mountains of southern Russia, was caught on video but we have chosen not to use it.

As Denis climbs into the Zorb he can be heard telling him: "Denis, you'll be like Jackie Chan in the Armour of God movie!"

But moments after the giant ball sets off down the course it lurches to the right and then the left as frantic ride organisers chase after it in a bid to catch it.

A man's voice is heard saying "Oh f***, it's gone in the wrong direction again" before screaming 'hold it, hold it! hold!"

Then he says: "Ah well, it's OK, it'll stop by itself."

After plunging down Ganachhirskiy Gorge in the Dombai resort, the orb eventually came to rest about one and a half kilometres away on a frozen lake.

Mr Burakov was still alive when he was found by emergency services on January 3, but he died on the way to hospital.

Police commander Sergei Shuvayev said: "The orb went on for about one and a half kilometres, jumping on the rocks and hitting them."           

The Stavropol edition of the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper reported that Mr Burakov's friend was "extremely lucky".

It said: "As for whatever they felt falling down the slope it is hard even to imagine. Some compare the pressure to what cosmonauts feel."

Police are investigating.

Zorbing, first tried in New Zealand in the 1990s, puts riders inside two balls with an air cushion between them.

The stupid thing about the article is they say they are too good to show the video on their site, but they show pictures of the video frame by frame.:rolleyes:
