Wouldn't the spinning have an influence on this?Holy crap, 8.5 seconds of air time?
That turns out to be... hang on, let me get back into physics class...
0.5 * 9.81 m/s² * (8.5 s)² =~ 354m
Fuck, can that be right? I don't think it's quite THAT high but I don't see the error in my math.
When you google the name in the left top corner of the video, you get the height of the attraction:Hm, not really. I think the problem is that I didn't account for air resistance slowing it down.
