Feel like dropping into Mardi Gras for a little afternoon fun? Well, that depends on your definition of fun—and dropping.
Have a gander at the ridiculously tall tower looming over the neighborhood 140 feet in the sky. If you’ve got the nerve to strap in to the ultra-snug shoulder harness chairs lining the tower, you’re well on your way to earning the respect of the locals. In any case it’s out of your hands now, because you are about to launch straight up all 14 stories. The view from up top is simply spectacular. Try to enjoy it through your quivering stomach and chattering teeth as best you can.
Now you only have one option left, and it’s right below you—you have to get down. And there’s only one way to get down a structure called “Voodoo Drop” and that’s to free fall. In one thrilling instant, you’re released and bullet all the way back down at an incredible adrenaline-charged 56 miles per hour—so fast you’ll barely have time to scream.
