A woman has shared her own hilarious reaction to a 300ft-high theme park ride.
Footballer Megan Connolly looked like she would rather be anywhere else after strapping into the slingshot attraction.
She repeatedly muttered ‘Oh my god’ and ‘no, no, no’ as she nervously waited to be thrown up in the air.
The 21-year-old, who is a forward in the Irish women’s football team, screamed in terror during her visit to the US fairground.
She shared the video on her Twitter page, with the caption: “The moment my soul left my body.”

The fairground footage has since been viewed more than half a million times.
“The moment I sat in the chair and got strapped in I freaked out,” Megan told the Irish Independent.
“So many thoughts were going through my head, like ‘your seat is going to open when you’re 300 feet in the air and well it’s not going to end well’.
“If I was on the ride for any longer I think I would have went into cardiac arrest. I was absolutely terrified.”

Her American teammate Dallas Dorosy laughed hysterically as Megan had a meltdown next to her.
Through her giggles, Dallas tried to calm her friend down by shouting: “Calm down Megan. Look at the view.”
