Famous words by actor Clint Eastwood/Dirty Harry: But are ya feeling lucky, punk?

I thinking you'd have to feel lucky or pretty much unafraid to try out what's pictured here.

Taken from my 20th floor vantage point while staying at the Grand Sierra Hotel in Reno, this pictures their Ultimate Rush attraction.

How it works: Strap into a harness. Attached to the harness is a hoist wire and a second wire securing the bungee cord which is also attached to the harness. You're then hoisted 185 feet to the very top of the single white pole.

As soon as the rider reaches the top the hoist wire is disconnected and WHAM! down you go between the two poles . . . just about 8 feet off of the ground. And there you swing back and forth until the momentum stops.

So, are you feeling lucky, punk?

Next time you're in Reno check it out.
