I would die of fright before I hit the ground.

Not on your life.... LOL!

I was "pressured" a few years ago to ride the thing that swings out over the edge and spins around for several minutes while centrifugal force pulls your seat bottom back and has you looking straight down at the strip. I (seriously) hit the guy who told me it "wasn't that bad" after the ride was finished. Not very nice at all!

I would love to do it but not for that much. Maybe $30- rope optional.

At least now we'll be able to differentiate between those jumping, and commiting suicide, and those, jumping, who are not trying to kill themselves.

Maybe or maybe not.

I recall some years ago, the guards tried to stop a local high school student
from jumping. Standing on the edge, after scaling the security walls, he sported a big smile directed at the guards, and jumped. At least that's what was reported in the newspaper.
