World’s highest swing

It is the world highest swing.  I know human is not designed to fly, so it may look quite scary, or absolutely frightened to those who have acrophobia, fear of heights or irrational panic attack triggered by heights.  However, I don’t have acrophobia and really want to try the swing out myself.  It is always exciting to me to look down from a high place. XD

The swing is set on a 700ft high viewing platform on the tower in Harbin city, Heilongjiang province.
Participants sit on the steel seat and swing out over the city, beyond the edge of the platform.
The swing is called "Game for brave people", reports Harbin Daily.
The tower is the world’s second-highest steel tower, after the Kiev tower in Ukraine.

Question: Would you dare (or dare not) to try it if you had a chance?
