Never did it...

but I think it's probably the one 'thrill' type activity I'd like to do the most... and would probably enjoy the most.

For me the most 'heart pumping' activity I ever did was bungy jumping. I don't know why but standing on the edge of a bungy jump (whatever you're standing on) is MUCH more anxiety inducing than sitting at the door of a plane waiting to jump.

Sky Diving... I'm that 'weirdo' that actually enjoys the jump MORE after the chute opens than the free fall. I have a theory as to why that is: The exhilarating moments of any 'thrill' activity.... free fall, the big drop on a roller coaster, etc. dulls somewhat if you've done it enough, which I have. It's no longer 'new'.

I've been on several of those giant "Swings".... the biggest was in Vegas....want to say it was just under 200' tall. Loved it... and still do.... but it's not the initial drop anymore, (it was), it's simply the 'swinging'.

I love acceleration G's.... but I've done most of activities a 'civilian' can participate in and would love to take the next step but I don't know of anything that allows that... unless you get a ride with the Blue Angels you're pretty much stuck with roller coasters.

I have experienced G Force 'grey out'... which is when you don't lose consciousness but you can't respond... that is 'move'... you're inert. This happened in a T-6 my friend flew in the air races. Not sure how many G's you pull in the turns but it's significant. I remember being amazed that the wings can stay attached. - JamesJM
