40 mph 100 ft treadmill   (+3)  [vote for, against]
Every gym should buy one

40 mph 100 ft treadmill with a slight incline towords the end and a foam pit to land in. No hand rails and the belt is an extra wide 6 feet across. To play the game you run on the first 8 ft of belt at normal treadmill speeds and when you cross the line it accelerates and launches you into the foam pit

So is this a treadmill or a people mover? i.e. which direction does the belt move? It sounds like this is more like a "people launcher".

Treadmill runs backwards so you can run foward. If you slow down and move past the 8 ft line, you're launched.

But if you have an ultralight on the treadmill, can you still takeoff?
