Travel Daily - - News -

NEW Zealand has re­vealed a new means to ter­rify its vis­i­tors with the launch to­day of a hu­man cat­a­pult that pro­pels ad­ven­tur­ers at 100km/h over a gap­ing ravine.

The Ne­vis Cat­a­pult near Queen­stown - un­veiled by AJ Hack­ett Bungy co-founder Henry van Asch - cre­ates forces of up to 3G as thrill-seek­ers are sent fly­ing 150m into open air be­fore drop­ping sud­denly to­wards the val­ley floor.
