Do you want to wear an "I Did It" pin?

The Sky Tower at Tivoli Friheden in Denmark rewards its riders with one. That is ... if they survive.

According to the ride's description on the amusement park's website, you'll experience 4G sensations. "In very simplified terms this means that your body weight is multiplied by 4.0," as you plummet from a 130-foot tower into a net 100 feet below you, the site explains.

Oh, and you aren't attached to anything. And can travel at a top speed of 55 mph. 

That's right, this "ride" is a "100% free fall."

Gizmopod reports, "A researcher studying near-death experiences actually used this ride to simulate them. It's resulted in serious injuries to a number of riders who've landed badly."

Park guests must be least 14 years old and weigh between 110 and 265 pounds to qualify. For health restrictions, click here.

And if you chicken out? "You may also just take the lift to the top and enjoy the view," further details the ride's website.

Watch above to see a park operator cut the rope and send guests plunging to their... "I Did It!"

Please note: Adult language is used by some of the people free falling in the video above.
