    Aren't you a rollercoaster guy? This scares me less than some of the rollercoaster videos I see.

    Sure dangling from a chain is kind of scary, but after 30 seconds you're still just swinging around a pole like a fool. Kinda simplistic for me.

    Im a roller coster guy and the idea of being 40 stories in the air spinning around on swing thats held up by a chain thats made of 3/8" thick links connected to what looks like a plastic swing seat scares me to death. Ill ride a 100yr old wooden roller coaster before I even ponder getting in line for that thing

    The fact thats its a chain that thin connected to a plastic seat is what gets to me. The mere thought of the chain breaking or separating from the plastic seat while its 400ft in the air is making me nauseous. If it was like a 2" chain connected to a steel seat it would bother me less though now im wondering what a good 30-40mph gust of wind does that thing

    I'm too fat to want to be on a swing set 400 fuckin' feet in the air. PASS.
    Another fatty like me in the other seat and we're looking at about 600 pounds.
    On a swing set. 400 feet in the air.

    NOPE.

    I love coasters, especially high speed steel ones.
    That however is not for me.

    Rollercoasters just seem safer to me than that. All it takes is one or two little pieces to snap and you fall 400 feet with nothing covering you. I've been to plenty of amusement parks and did all the rides they had to offer but I ain't doing that. Maybe I'm just a big pussy?

    I was saying before that this ride would be no problem whatsoever for me...that is, until the next day, when I went up to the 25th floor of some hotel I was staying in and realized how much of a pussy I am when it comes to heights. And I had my two feet on the ground with a tall, thick steel railing that kept me safe...instead, this would be me strapped to a plastic chair being held up by 4 little chains, going 15 stories higher, and spinning around at 30 mph. Yeah, I'll pass.

    Just from what I can see in the video that chain is pretty heavy duty, enough that only one would hold you and it looks like there is at least four per chair plus a braided safety cable. The chain easily looks like 2000 lb capable.

    That 3/8" chain has a safety half load limit (HLL) rating of 5400 pounds. Which means it could actually hold 10,800 pounds. You'll be fine.

    i dont care what it can actually do the look of it makes me uneasy and thats good enough for me. While the chain can hold that those seats look plastic which also makes me uneasy because im 300lbs. Yall can call me a pussy if you want but my fat ass will never ride that

    Doesn't matter. Still looks like a spinning death trap to me.

    Unless it comes with an anchor chain from the USS Enterprise,
    a steel seat and a shoulder harness I'm not getting on that thing.
