Fly by wire
"Feed the control freak inside with the fastest adventure flight in the world" This "plane" is connected to an overhead suspension point. All I needed to hear is that you’re in charge of the throttle and steering.

This is in New Zealand. I'm sure it wouldn't pass safety and insurance guidelines in the U.S. Too bad.

There was one in Burleson, Texas... south of Fort Worth. It was operational for a couple of years and closed about 6 years ago.
They charged $55 for a ride, and it took several rides to get the hang of operating it.
It was just too expensive to ride, so it finally went out of business.
You could spend all day at Six Flags Over Texas for less than 1 ride on this thing... and have more fun.

I've tried that while in New Zealand, and it is a lot less exciting than it looks. In fact, it turned out to be pretty boring after a minute or two because unexperienced "pilots" (like me and most others) simply rock back and forth as the steering is difficult.
