I was up on top of the Stratosphere shortly after it opened. It's an absolutely incredible view at night. The only ride up there at the time was the roller coaster, iirc.

Despite all precautions, accidents happen on rides. You'll never see my smiling face on rides that high up. No @#@$@ way.

I saw something several years ago on the Drop ride - I think in Vegas - I assume it is like the "Big Shot". A cable broke and sliced a ladies legs off cleanly. ONE minute she's enjoying the ride, the next, she can't even get out of the seat under her own power.

What if you accidentally did a "Thelma and Louise"? I don't think you would survive from that height.

I would do it, but I'd double check all my restraining device connections...

Knowing me, I'd be the first in line then 2 adrenaline filled days later, I'd wake up in bed in a cold sweat realizing what I just did.

I wonder if you get far enough away from the side of the building that you would lose your depth peception and sense of height. I also wonder if you got it back when you get close to the side of the building, would it then make it even worse.

Knowing me, I'd be the first to freefall with that machine still strapped around my big arse whenever it decided to detach itself from the building, "Whoa Mom, you should have seen the look on that old guy's face whenever that thing came unglued!" ... 'Glad I made your day and youtube junior.'

I wouldn't lose my sense of height because I would never make it up the building to begin with, Rick don't do heights at all, which is funny because back in the day I did bridge construction and never had a problem walking the beams carrying full sheets of plywood or hanging over the sides installing the brackets that held the forms for the overhang ... even rappelled from helicopters and down the side of cliffs in the Army and loved it. Weird huh?

Looking down at the cat toys from my recliner makes me break out into a cold sweat too.
