This is what a fairground ride with flame-throwing jet engines looks like

Ride.jpg

There comes a time in every man’s life when he must reluctantly admit that, at long last, he is too big to partake in all the fun of the fairground. It’s a moment in life nobody likes to reach, but one that we must all face up to at some point. 

But that sad day just got pushed way, waaay back, thanks to this unbelievably cool rotating ride-on, with massive fiery engines propelling it to breakneck speeds.

This all-out bonkers creation comes from the minds of The Madagascar Institute, a Brooklyn-based art collective that specialise in large sculptures and carry the pretty badass slogan “Fear is never boring”. 

Watch their beautiful invention in all it's flaming glory below, and let yourself feel five years old again...
