These guys probably feel a bittersweet combination of fear, luck and crapped pants after nearly getting shot into the sky on a faulty slingshot ride. Reportedly, the woman recording the video had a bad feeling about the ride and declined going on. It looks like she made the right move.

Most videos of these kinds of rides feature people screaming until they throw up and pass out, but this one takes a different turn. After all that he's still got the audacity to say he took it like a champ. One ride on that slingshot thing is like 75 bucks so hopefully it was worth it.

Badass Dad Takes Final Stand Against Big Business Takeover (17 Tweets)

This is an actual rollercoaster ride. What better way to honor your dad than to tell one badass story about his final stand against a big business takeover. All would've worked out just fine if it weren't for those damn meddling kids.

Genius Dad Gets Well-Timed Revenge on Six Flags Line Cutters

When you have to wait in line for an hour to get on a ride, a line-cutting can turn into a fistfight. With a little forethought, this dad effectively got someone back for being a jackass, and left them with the ability to do absolutely nothing about it. What a dad move. Hot damn.

Have you ever wanted to feel what it's like to be inside of a frying pan, just sizzling and bouncing like a piece of zucchini nobody wants? 

Of course you have! 

Well, if you're in Myanmar, your dreams have come true. This dumb-as-shit ride called "Tagada" is leaving riders in Yangon bruised and nauseous. They bounce and laugh, but they don't know why because this thing looks so stupid. 

I have no idea why anyone would want to ride this thing, but then again, I don't like rides. Except for The Haunted Mansion. The Haunted Mansion is my shit.

The obvious devious gameplan here being to hop out halfway through the ride to live in this glorious, magical park for the rest of one's life.

There was a problem rendering this video - it may have been deleted.

When you're a parent and your kid passes out next to you, I guess the only responsible thing left to do is laugh your ass off at them. #DadOfTheYear

The design for a new, 570-foot tall roller coaster called Skyscraper has been unveiled this week in Orlando, which, when complete, will be the tallest in the world.

The animated video shows the cars twisting around and making their way up a massive white tower before plummeting back down to earth at speeds up to 65mph.

And there's no "down time," says US Thrill Rides president Michael Kitchen, the company behind the project.

Construction will begin in 2015, and the ride is expected to open in 2017 as part of a new $200 million Skyplex entertainment complex.

The tallest roller coaster at present is Kingda Ka (456-feet tall) at Six Flags in New Jersey.
