Does anyone have any information on this contraption? Possibly some pics or video of one in action?

How about a verbal description?

No problem...

...Really it was no problem I just went to the address line and typed ? "sky sling" and those were two of the links that came up...

Search tools are not that difficult to use, people!

Yah, but it's SO much easier when somebody else does it...or exercises their writing skills. ;)

Actually Redman, yes I did search for Sky Sling and yes I did find results, by this post I was looking for people's personal input on the Sky Sling. When I said "thank you," it was out of common courtesy for taking some sort of initiative. So please, don't act like my boss and try to make an example out of me. Yes, I did ask for video and pics and for that "thank you." But for everything else you get a big frown. :(

Please note that by all of this I am totally joking. Yeah, I'm lazy... so what.

well since I am probably one of the few people that have been on the sky sling as well as all the other new contraptions I will try and decribe the experience.

The first cool thing about this ride is the seats. It is like riding spaceshot now which definetly gives it a different feel. However the way you bounce or even sit makes this ride distinctive from spaceshot or ejection seat rides. I think that when the seats are rotated it makes it much more thrilling.

I am sorry, I really don't know how to describe it, it is very similar to many current rides but at the same time different.
