Incredibly scarey Russian amusement park ride. Almost made me "hurl" just watching it!

A deal, deal! Maybe He's a Republican?

If I was younger, I'd be all over that.....not so much anymore.

I love to ride these, even at 59 years old.

I hate the green faces of the riders on both sides of me.. Rookies!!

When that split and started the wobbly stuff. I would be in line buying a ticket..

Scariest thing to me would be that it was made in Russia, if it was OK'd in a Western country with higher safety standards and less corrupt officials I'd be all over it.

I always wonder tho, I'd have to ride in the ft seats, not only for the 'thrill' but more importantly for me, not getting other's vomit slipstreamed back to me. Ugh. Is that a real problem in general on those rides or do riders just look sick but really rarely actually hurl going 50+ mph??

Hell for that matter, I wouldn't get in a 'made in Russia' teacup ride either!

Their space capsules keep making it up to the ISS OK tho!

then nobody's going to the ISS for a few years! Human spaceflight is almost completely reliant on Soyuz right now, except for the Chinese spacecraft. A sad state of affairs.
