WATCH Video 100214: Tired of Roller Coaster? Try Riding SLINGSHOT!



Slingshot is another extreme ride which some say a bit scarier than bungee jumping. The main difference though is that you're strapped into a booster seat before they launched you into the air. While in bungee jumping you don't need to sit and all you have to do is jump. There's a circulating debate online whether falling from a higher elevation is scarier than being launch up high.

My idea is that it would depend really of what type of adventurer you are. As for me, I feel more secure holding on to some tangible thing within reach than barely falling with just some elastic rope tied around me. Given the fact that I got dizzy just watching this video made me conclude that there's a 5% possibility I would ever go on a slingshot ride. Nevertheless, bungee jumping has been on my bucket list since I was in high school - so for the sake of making dreams come true, I would still do it.

Anyway, I'm not sure if any amusement parks and activity centers here in the Philippines already offers this ride. If you have any idea where one can go or if you've already tried this ride - don't hesitate to leave a comment in this post.
