Is This the World's Scariest Ride?

YouTube caption: "The ride is called WIND SHEAR and it is at Divo Ostrov Amusement Park in Russia. This ride is very similar to the Riptide ride at Knott's Berry Farm in Orange County, but a different name and little changes make it more exciting. It was so scary that even the people who were watching it started screaming."

Looks like how I dislocated my left shoulder on the rings in college gymnastics.

Fear? That's the I-5 at rush hour between LA & San Diego.

That's it? That's all it does?
I was thinking, have the machine anchored over a seriously deep crevasse while it does Peach's Taffy Pull, then for a grand finale all harnesses are automatically unbuckled and everyone is tossed high into the air to descend on previously affixed bungee cords. Survivors get a second ride free.

Na. Nah. No.

Not willing to put the body in a mechanical blender. **** happens.

I am taffy and I am distorted!

Yeah. I screamed, too.

Somehow the fact that it's in Russia (have you seen all those abandoned fun parks on Dark Roasted Blend?) makes it even scarier.

Sickening to watch. Looks like a form of torture to me! I can't even ride a roller coaster.
