Thrillseekers may not pick Aarhus as their number one destination, but that's only because they haven't given Tivoli Friheden's Sky Tower a try.

Imagine plunging from the top of a 40 meter high tower into a net 30 meters below with no rope. During the ride you experience 4G sensations as your free-falling body  hits 90 kilometres per hour.

The ride is one of a number of SCAD towers located in theme parks around the world.

'Splatterhorn' ride going viral
A video of the ride has already become a viral Youtube hit with more than 2 million views, and the ride has frightened international media like Daily Mail, Daily Star and The Huffington Post, who reported that SCAD towers have been used to simulate near-death experiences.

On Tuesday it was featured on the US TV show @Midnight on Comedy Central, when comedian Weird Al Yankovic called it 'Splatterhorn' and Reggie Watts named it 'The Shitmaker'.
