A Jet Engine-Powered Merry-Go-Round Is the Ultimate Carnival Ride

You’re already accepting some level of risk when you climb aboard any carnival ride, from the Ferris Wheel to the bumper cars, and for little payoff. So if you’re going endanger yourself for some cheap thrills, why not go big aboard a merry-go-round powered by real jet engines rocketing you around in circles.

Built by the Brooklyn-based Madagascar Institute, the fiery carousel only accommodates two riders, but any more and you’d have the afterburner of the rider in front of you blasting you in the face—which is admittedly slightly less fun.
