LOL I thought of you when I saw this actually because you had made that air powered gun in the past.

I don't know how to make this.

I will do a little research and see if I can find anything.

It does look like lots of fun.

I bet kids would LOVE it too.

LOL. I wonder if I can find some building plans online or somthing.
I'm sure I can build one , just need to know what air pressure valves and lines to use. you realy have to be careful with that becouse your launching a real live person. wouldnt want to over shoot your best friend clear across the lake,

I found one that is water powered.

Check this out.

Approximately 60 Liters of water are then forced through a rocket nozzle under the seat. This pressurized water (8 to 10 bar of air pressure) propels the participant 8 meters though the air for a cool and refreshing splash down in a swimming pool

If you want to experiment, why not try a small one first, very small. Then scale up.

Can you imagine making something like this and then creating a business that sells the service at festivals or different events?
