At Oldtown Theme Park in Orlando, Florida, a couple was brave enough to try out the Slingshot ride!
As they hop on and strapped their selves on the thrilling ride, they both seems to be having a blast laughing and shouting their fear and excitement out until the guy passes out! Then minutes later he woke up and he completely did not know what happened. He was confused and said,
I think I blacked out.
The woman, who seems to be unaware of what’s happening, just kept on laughing. While the guy was talking fast because of the adrenaline rushing through his body then suddenly, he passes out again! The guy’s body obviously hasn’t caught up with his mind, because he passes out not once, but twice during the two-minute ride!
Slingshot is well known to be an amusement ride which is by far one of the most exciting vertical present today. Its passengers are propelled over 100 metres at speeds in the region of 160 kilometers per hour.
Though it does not utilize rubber ropes or bungee cords, it is powered by a patented spring propulsion device incorporating up to 720 specially designed springs.
For the ultimate thrill ride Slingshot designs are able to propel the passenger capsule more than 150 metres high. There are other designs available that have a passenger capacity of around 240 passengers per hour.
According to Reddit user, jwcolour, he saw that there are a lot of carnival doctors commenting their diagnosis for this young chap. So he shared a link about understanding fainting basics stating that
You may suffer from a simple fainting spell due to anxiety, fear, pain, intense emotional stress, hunger, or use of alcohol or drugs. Most people who suffer from simple fainting have no underlying heart or neurological (nerve or brain) problem.
According to him, the guy on the video was clearly stressed, on a ride that quickly shifts you from one direction to another, and not properly breathing (screaming nonstop). The guy passed out, no big deal.
