YIKES!!!!

I'm sure I would pass out as soon as becoming a projectile and be unable to pull the ripcord! I would think the person who would do this would have to be either a total daredevil and/or very experienced skydiver.

I've been on that bridge. No way in hell would I do that! I did take parachute training years ago and love parasailing, but catapulting into a river? Nawwwwwwwwwwww, not gonna happen.

The law allows this? They don't consider it BASE jumping or are you on a tether instead of packing a chute?

I've driven over that bridge twice. I was terrified the entire time. I think I'd have a heart attack just getting in the catapault.

If you pass out you're going to make a *BIG* splash

One day a year they have Bridge Day where they close the road and celebrate the completion of the bridge. BASE jumping is allowed as well as repelling, bungee jumping or just taking a walk across the bridge. On other days this would be illegal.

I was actually white water rafting UNDER this bridge ON Bridge Day many years ago! Call that my crazy moment cause there was NO way in Holy Hell I would ever come off that bridge...without being thrown after being pried from its sides!!!

1 - I thought this would be a link to that video where the pro race car driver takes a test drive.

2 - I might actually do that catapult thing. Although it would probably kill me, it looks fun.
