Owensboro Kids Completely Calm on Slingshot Ride in Florida
Okay, I've stated a couple of times that I'm no longer able to ride a lot of stuff at amusement parks anymore. The Kentucky State Fair will never be the same. Slingshot rides are pretty popular in tourist destinations like the one in Panama City Beach, Florida. 10-year-old Bailye Smith and Joseph Daughtery, who was celebrating his 11th birthday, of Owensboro, they're as cool as cucumbers.
Yes, after initial jolt, there are some happy screams, but in the duration of Bailye's and Joseph's journey, they start holding a mini-conversation. This is the video of their ride Tuesday night on the Slingshot & Vomatron at Indy Speedway. GULP!
My hat is off to these kids, I'm not sure I could even make it on a Tilt-A-Whirl these days. They had an absolute blast, literally.
