You give your Indemnity form to the guy at the fence, the gate falls closes behind you. You sit down. One of these not really trustworthy-looking man comes up to you and puts some kind of pads on each of your lower legs -. Not particularly tight, the velcro dissolves halfway already. Your heart beats faster, your hands tremble even though you are actually relatively relaxed ...
into a rickety elevator with a small group of people. He rickety starts to
move. Angular he's too.
Then all of a sudden, on two-thirds of the way up the elevator stops and the trustworthy-Supervisor points with his finger on the Opposite side of the elevator and says: "Can you please close the window for me!?". All eyes wander in the direction - nothing. Only the lattice surrounding the elevator on all sides - haha very funny.
You arrive at the top, you are supposed to look where you step, you hold the left and right to the banister, climb up the stairs. Once at the top you dare a first look over the railing - doesn't seem sooo high.
People start to enter the bridge to jump - the next - are you then.
The moment you enter this wobbly suspension bridge everything around you blurs. Your heart beats up to your throat, whether you like it or not. One of the four people who are there on the bridge begins to talk to you, another one puts his camera in your face and starts to take photos. The voices are far away. Thou should sit down. One puts a belt around your legs, that almost your blood stops running through your feet, but you don't feel it. He puts two hooks on that belt that make your legs being one leg. You shall stand up to run to the ramp -. in mini steps, something else is impossible. Jump At zero, arms forward. 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1 - 0 You fall - no fly! Looking towards the ground, approaching too fast. Body tension you think, hands outward. Feels somehow like flying. The rubberband is slowly tightening, the blood of your whole body is now in your head. Relief you didn't hit the ground. The rubberband pulls you up again. You see only sky. Disoriented. No soil, no bridge, no towers. Panic. It goes down again. The horizon appears again, you're back at the lowest point. Now being let down slowly. On the floor a guy making weird moves. You don't get what he wants and just hang there. You get tears into your eyes - everything is blurred.
The two men finally grab your arms, chin to chest. You are put down on the floor. Have to put a helmet on, that is next to you. Shackles and Bodybelt are being removed. With a beating heart you leave the "fall zone". You are happy. Actually it was really cool. You want again - actually.
