Barefoot in the Sky...

This is my preferred carousel. The adrenaline rush, high speed, loops...this is the "X-danger Zone". Taste the joy to touch the sky with your toes, caressing the sky while you are flying barefoot!

Last spring the town of Como, in the North of Italy, hosted a wonderful Luna Park, with my preferred carousel, the magic loop of “X-danger Zone”. Rotations along three different axes, rotating at high speeds from a height of 25 meters. In the wonderful springtime, it gave a beautiful taste of the sky flying barefooted! Here an overall image of the carousel:

It’s beautiful to fly, smile, and scream with your friends in the sky! Great speed, great wind in your hair!

And the fun is increased if you take off your shoes, to enjoy the vortex of the air both on your hands and your feet…

So, if you push the green button on the right…

You end up…upside down…

looking at the world upside down…

so you can caress the sky with your feet while you continue to turn…

…and you surely begin to think “What you missed not going up with us!”

…throwing you screaming full of joy…

And you can tell as your Gagarin: “I see the earth from here, and it is beautiful!”

Enjoy!
