Who knew that the Slingshot ride could be even more terrifying!?!
New Jersey, United States of America (02 August 2021) – We’ve all seen the trending videos of people passing out while on those “Slingshot” rides, but this one takes the adrenaline attraction to new heights.
The video – which shows the seagull flying straight into the face of an unexpected thrill-seeker – has gone viral globally, with many social media users commentating what their reaction might be to the horrifying yet hilarious moment.
“The video shows the bird flying straight into one of the teenagers who cannot comprehend what is happening and continues to scream with a horror-stricken expression on her face. After a few seconds, the girl uses one hand to pluck the bird, which seems to be stuck to her chest, off her body. The bird is then seen flying away. Her companion, on the other hand, is seen to be oblivious to what is happening to her friend as she has her eyes tightly shut all along,” as reported by NDTV.
But this is not the first time something like this has happened; in 1999, Fabio Lanzoni made headlines around the globe after being hit in the face by a goose on the inaugural opening ceremony of a new rollercoaster at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.
The “Fabio goose incident” is one of the most talked-about stories in rollercoaster and theme park history but it seems, 20 years later he may have some fierce competition.
