Just Some Casual Suggestions for New Tourist Attractions

Wrigley Field

Be the Ball, Danny
Ever wonder what it feels like to be on the receiving end of Kyle Schwarber’s bat? Just imagine stepping into a human-size clear ball that’s loaded into a giant cannon at home plate and shot over the center field wall. Then you’d know.

Trump Tower

Cinch up a safety harness, leap off the roof of 45’s self-promoting building, and scream into the abyss while the sheer terror of what lies ahead rushes at you. Sounds eerily familiar, no?

Navy Pier’s Centennial Wheel

The Spins
Around 800,000 people ride the iconic Ferris wheel every year. Would the line be as long if the cabins spun while the wheel rotated—and you were strapped to the outside of the cabin? Barf bags not included.
