AirKick human catapult slam-dunks brave riders

So this is what they do at parties in Germany? Plunk down a sizable sum of Deutschmarks, and you’ve rented yourself an AirKick, a catapult that spews out a jet of water that can sling a brave rider 26 feet into the wild blue. Let’s just hope there’s a foam pit or forgiving body of water nearby.

Never mind that this is a lawsuit waiting to happen — this has got to be an extraordinary thrill ride. Yeah, 26 feet doesn’t sound like much, but when you’re the one riding atop that streaming jet of water, it might seem like you’re on your way to the moon.
