According to Clarksville Now, the Daytona Slingshot is a reverse bungee ride that shoots you “300 feet into the air at 100 miles per hour.” Thank you anyway. The ride warnings neglect to add that the Daytona Slingshot will snatch your wig off and throw it away!
A woman named Charlene Hill learned this after her daughter Amaya coaxed her onto the ride. Wig snatched!
The video has gone viral, but Charlene is being a good sport about it.
Though it wasn’t Charlene’s idea to get on the ride, she has taken it in stride and is enjoying all of the positive attention surrounding the now-viral video.
“My daughter (Amaya) wasn’t scared at all. She thought it was the coolest thing! The best part was being able to share that moment with my daughter,” Hill said.
And get this – she got her wig back! She probably couldn’t wear it again after it was probably trampled upon by people who are ignorant about proper wigcare. But maybe she can recycle it as a tea cozy or something.
