So after growing the biggest balls of them all you now have to deal with business end of the ginormous ramp and then fly 50ft to another ramp at a speed of 100mph...who the hell thinks of this poo?

Just imagine.

You drop in, you`re feeling confident, you know your gonna do something incredible.

Then you realize that you just bailed, and down you go.

@ManicRapture: I don`t think a parachute would do you much good there. It`s either not high enough for a `chute to open fully, or else the `chute would probably hit the wall on the way. I think the key is to not fall.

Fisheye lens or no, the drop looks crazier from this perspective than it probably does from the stands. Either way, that`s a gnarly drop. Just looking at this photo makes me a little queasy.

I keep looking at this pic and I can`t tell whether they used a fisheye lens or not. It just looks so epic and the ramp bend and the stadium circle is tricking me.

idk but it looks like a perfect place to wear parachute pants.

It`s a fish-eye lens, which distorts distance due to a phenomenon known as perspective lengthening, so it`s not as big a drop as it looks. Which reduces this from being "Criminally F*cking Insane" to only being "Balls-Shrinkingly F*cking Insane". No biggie.

In addition, it seems pretty high, but look at the plastic mantinels on the left; they`re all the same size, and the first one (the least affected by the fish-eye effect) seems to be about 4 ft long; so the slope has about 24 ft.
