Images from this year's dazzling light festival
Insanity, The Stratosphere, Las Vegas, US
3Gs might not sound like that much but when the Gs in question are experienced while being suspended over the edge of the 112-storey Stratosphere tower, you can understand why this ride has the most die-hard adrenaline junkies quaking in their boots.
Insanity comprises a huge mechanical arm extending 64 feet out from the top of the Stratosphere tower. Passengers sitting in the carriages attached to the arm are spun at speeds of up to 40mph whilst the seats also tilt to an angle of 70 degrees, offering those onboard a breath-taking but vomit-inducing view of the city below.
