The Sky Tower in Tivoli Friheden, Denmark is a theme park ride unlike any you've seen before - there is no rope, no rails and no brakes.

It's just a 100ft fall with a net at the bottom.

If it sounds terrifying, that's because it is. Willing thrillseekers will climb the enormous staircase to the top of the structure where they'll be winched out into the centre and from there it's a simple job of cutting you loose.

Having seen most of your life appear in front of your eyes -- and realised the inevitability of man's condition -- you'll finally be met with an enormous safety net.

Now obviously such a ride wouldn't exist if it wasn't safe but honestly, when all control is handed over to gravity, it's hard to place that much faith in gravity.

That said, if it sounds like your thing then pray for no wind and head over to Denmark where you can try out this death defying free fall.
