The Big Thrill is Really the Big Chill

I am not a thrill seeker by nature and I am always a bit surprised when I see certain “rides” that would appear to be more appropriate in a large-scale torture chamber than an amusement park. Don’t get me wrong, I have had my experiences on roller coasters, Ferris wheels and similar rides. I rode the Cyclone Roller Coaster in Coney Island, NYC when it was noted as the largest such ride in the United States and perhaps the world at that time.

There is a video circulating around the Internet that claims to show the Gyro Drop at Lotte World Adventure, South Korea.


After seeing this, I had to investigate a bit further because it was hard for me to believe that this was pleasurable. Would you want to be lifted, swung around and dropped like that? I just wouldn’t consider that fun!

Sure enough the popular video (above) appears to be significantly enhanced to make the ride more nightmarish than it is in reality. The two videos below purportedly show the actual amusement.

A Matter of Perspective – Eiffel Tower

Let’s face it some of us are just not skilled enough with Photoshop to remove or add certain items from pictures without making it look very amateurish.

I guess Sid Frisjes felt a bit intimidated by wanting to have a forced perspective picture of himself and the Eiffel Tower so he posted the picture below on line and asked:

“Can someone photoshop the eifeltower under my finger? [sic]”
