I recently got ACE news in the mail. I just can't seem to tell how SCAD works from the picture. Someone explain?

Charlie,

Go to www.themeparkreview.com and download Robb's IAAPA video if you have the time. There is some footage in it that shows it in operation.

So wait. You're in a harness, they hang you, then you pull a rip cord(like on Extreme Skyfler) and you just fall into a net?

Sounds like my type of ride!

Yup, it's complete freefall. You just drop into a net. I guess they're putting one in at WI Dells this summer.

coastermaster,

SCAD is the name for Montic's Suspended Catch Air Device that seem to be getting more popular the last couple of years.

Charlie,

Yep, that's pretty much it. They put you in a harness so you are kind of in a fetal postion, then without warning (most of the time), they pull a cord and down you go. Because of the postion you are in, you don't really get reference to falling beecause you don't really see the ground rushing up at you. If you do look up while falling, you get to see the cage you were just in go away.

Each of the 4 times I did the SCAD, I had that feeling of, "AAAAA! Please catch me!" while falling. That feeling never went away.
