Default Would you dare?

I have seen this a couple of times this week. They just did a segment on the Today show, link below about this. Would this scare the poop out of you, or, would you say...book it! $250.00, with instructions for 90 minutes.

I'm sure that it would be a lot of fun, but I will pass it up.

Looks like lots of fun. I'd love to do it. Truth is I'd be chicken.

I would do it.

Parasailing seems more dangerous to me and I've done that 3 times.

I would like to have one of these in my city, too...FlowRider and FlowBarrel at Wave House | Wave House San Diego

JH has implied that something similar is coming to the Carnival Breeze.

IN A HEARTBEAT!

Nancy, I think that was probably one of the instructors proving you could actually go in/under the water on the thing and back up!

When I next get Artrail Fib, it would probably solve it instantly!

What a great idea... I would sign up in a heart beat w/out need for TP !!!

I would be willing to gamble that this activity will start to be growing in other caribbean ports of call in the near future.

I can't say. There is a lot more that can go wrong with this than parasailing. Pay the extra $20 and get the good rope.

However, it doesn't look like you really get high enough for the impact to kill you if you lose water pressure. Just break a few bones or knock you unconscious.

I'd have to watch more than a promotional video before I could commit.

Take care,
Mike

It looks like it has more to do with your balance than your strength...kinda like a Segway.
