    Base-Jumper leaps of 415 ft. ride at Magic Mountain

    This is pretty crazy.

    Base-jumper leaps from top of thrill ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain - Travel - LATimes.com

    A stunt man base-jumped from the top of the 415-foot-tall Superman: The Escape thrill ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain this week as part of an upcoming extreme sports stunt show.

    The jump will be featured in the season opener of MTVís Nitro Circus, starring action sports athlete Travis Pastrana and his reckless band of daredevils.

    In the top photo, the stuntman can be seen leaping from the top of the reverse freefall shuttle roller coaster with Hurricane Harbor water park and the I-5 Freeway in the distance.

    And no, you canít try it yourself. Donít even bother asking.

    WOW!! That is crazy!

    Do u want to hear something crazier?

    When I worked at Six Flags back in 1999, the entire opening staff of Superman was fired for riding while testing in the mornings..No big deal right? Well they were launching themselves while LAYING DOWN across the seats.

    Say whaaa?! That's just nutty! I think the base jumper should have been wearing a Superman costume. Just sayin'.

    That's definitely something.

    I do agree the Superman costume would have been awesome.
