Roving Observation Platform

So people can see their neighborhood from a new perspective
  [vote for,

A cherry picker outfitted with an ice cream truck bell roams around the town. When it passes your house, you run outside, the truck stops, and you give the driver a dollar. Then you get into the bucket, which lifts you up 100 feet above the ground for two thrilling minutes of high-altitude observation.

       Great for peeping Toms. I'm going to stick to waugsqueke's stargazing blimp platform.

       should have used the service *before* you bought the property.   

       try the London Eye - marvellous.

       You've certainly got the gift, AO.

       Good use for phone line repair trucks when not in use. Can it provide ice cream as well for one stop shopping? +

       Qualified bun -- elephant/camel rides kinda qualify, but they're obviously not so high or regular (esp. after a lot of peanuts...).

       Or I'll swoop down in an ultralight and you can share the 20 cent fuel cost for those 3 mins.

       Safety: use the popemobile "enclosed" form for the platform.
Style: copyright infringing reproductions of cartoon characters, to complement the bell.

       Can I drop a penny off of it for an additional fee?
