make jumping off things into big air bags or nets a recreational sport
This idea spun off of "elevator air bags". How about providing places where people could, for a small fee (and after signing a release and taking a breathalyzer test), learn how to land and then jump or get pushed off high spots into those big loose air bags that stunt people use? Could do wild& crazy
things with your body on the way down, then buy the video.
(Disgusting thought - people could practice suicide before committing themselves!)
How to jump into a dumpster.

||[Practicing suicide? Is that like shooting yourself with a gun filled with blanks or stopping short of cutting your juglar? I mean, you never know if youre effective until you actually do it and when you succeed, youre not around to know. Concerning practice jumping from a building, suicide victims are concerned with finality, not dismounts, so I wouldn't worry too much about them practicing...but with them succeeding. ]

||Wait, what does his have to do with Karaoke?
||Well, they have Baseball Fantasy Camp, why not Stuntman Fantasy Camp?
||The "karaoke" part was in videotaping you as you jump/fall/gyrate/whatever, so you could take the experience home with you and show all your friends.
Kind of a stretch, I know - couldn't think of a better term.
||They only opened in late 1999, tourist information brochures aren't your preferred reading material, and you take 4 rather than Industrial Drive?
||50 bucks for a half hour of rock climbing there... what a
