    Default Grona Lund park's insane 397-foot-high chair swing ride (Stockholm, Sweden)

    121 meters high. To put it another way, you are swinging around at 44 mph (70 kph) at about the height of a 33-story building.

    This video shows the ride from both the bottom and the top:

    I'd prefer this to a rollercoaster ride.

    I would be in tears and they would have to call an ambulance as soon as the damn thing touched down.

    When I was younger, I would have loved it, but with age came vertigo so no twirly rides.

    They don't look especially securely strapped in do they? More like a ski chairlift. The humanity!

    Nope, wouldn't do it. I have the abnormal fear that the chains would break, and my swing would go flying....

    Not so much scary but nauseating - my stupid stomach wouldn't be able to handle it.

    I think I could do that... It's really no different than regular ones.
