I wasn’t born in 1965 when Thunderball – the 4th spy film in the James Bond series starring Sean Connery as the fictional MI6 agent – came out in the theaters showing him escaping in a jetpack. Skip forward to present day, now there’s a water amusement jetpack. Insane! Words to describe a Jet Pack lesson = Major Rush!
Near the end of March, it’s still humpback whale season in Waikiki.

It’s the only SkyJump in North America and the highest in the world. SkyJump is a controlled free fall, similar to a vertical zip line. The launching pad is located on the 108th floor of Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower in Las Vegas, 855 feet above the Las Vegas Strip. Jumpers are harnessed in and attached to a cable that is connected to a descender machine. Guide wires keep the skyjumper on course and on target. I take the leap!
