The View While Swinging 6,000 Feet In the Air From Hot Air Balloons Is Stunning

Remember how your heart skipped a beat when you swung just a little too high on your local playground swingset as a kid? Imagine what your heart would be doing if you rode a swing suspended from a 400-foot-long tether hanging beneath a hot air balloon floating over 5,900 feet in the air.


Even with a parachute strapped to your back, swinging through the air this high above the ground is going to leave your heart racing, your palms sweaty, and a sincere wish you had just stuck with the slide.

Looks awesome. Shame not *1* shot that actually shows the full pendulum of the swing. I guess if the scene doesn’t cut every 3 seconds I’d be on snapchat to combat my crushing boredom.
