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.

Video-Ohs – Bear Cub & Momma Try to Climb Snowy Slope

Nature shows us the very best of the struggle for life as a very small bear cub tries to follow its mother up a snowy sope. This youngster has guts and perseverance. It struggles agains the laws of physics about which it knows nothing. Mama bear stands helplessly by as the cub struggles to reach her.

NOTE – There is no accompanying sound with this video. Just sit back and watch!

Notes from the YouTube Page:

 
I was almost snow-go for a cute – and determined – cub which gamely tried to follow its mum up a steep and extremely slippery snow-covered slope.

Video footage of the plucky young animal shows the creature refusing to have a melt-down, despite repeatedly sliding down the powdery surface.

The clip, which has gone viral on social media, had viewers admitting they felt “stressed out” as it was “hard to watch” the cub continually slide down the mountain, towards rocks.

It starts by showing the pair clambering over a rocky patch of ground as the mum guides her young cub towards the top of the mountain.

Both animals initially slide down the slope, but the mother quickly regains her footing and makes it to the ridge, where she waits for the cub to join her.

Plenty of heart-stopping moments follow as the cub struggles to reach her, and it leaves long trails in the snow where its claws have dug in to stop it slipping too far below.

However it slides a considerable distance, ending up on a large rocky patch.

Meanwhile, its mother looks anxiously over the ridge, pacing to and fro.

At one stage, the cub is within just a few feet of its mum.

But at this precise moment, when the cub is nearly beside her, she appears to look straight ahead, and seems nervous about a drone filming her cub.

To think that this performance was executed by high school students is astounding! This would be impressive if it were performed professionally on Broadway or at a Las Vegas venue. Everyone involved with this production should be saluted.

The choreography, dancing, scenery, etc. is wonderful and very well done. You will soon forget this was a hs gymnasium and I can guarantee that if you enjoy dancing and music, you will savor this masterpiece.
