The thrill of a slingshot ride has proven all too much for a nine-year-old girl whose terrified screams are interrupted when she passes out – not just once but twice.
Molly Barret and her dad AJ Barrett, 50, launched themselves into the sky at a theme park during an adrenaline-fuelled family holiday to the Gold Coast, Australia.
Hilarious onboard footage, captured on June 17, shows Molly barely filling the seat and tightly gripping the handles on the ride’s harness.

AJ is heard asking his daughter if she is ready, to which Molly responds with a nervous nod.
‘Be careful what you wish for…the only way is up…we are never doing anything like this ever, ever again,’ AJ said.
Molly lets out a high pitched scream after the cage is released and the pair are sent hurtling through the air.
Her crying out is abruptly cut short when the little Aussie passes out on the way back down.
Molly is unconscious for about five seconds before she wakes up and continues to scream as the ride slings back into the air.

AJ said it wasn’t until the second time his daughter passed out that he realised what had happened.
‘We were shot into the night sky at approximately 6G’s and were not able to see much and trying to keep the horizon in your view is very difficult,’ AJ said.
‘There were instant screams from Molly and then; blackout, awake, scream, blackout.’
Molly’s father said it was his daughter was ‘hellbent’ on going on the the slingshot and wanted to try every ride she was tall enough to go on at the Gold Coast SeaWorld, Warner Bros and Movie World theme parks.
The family said the video was the funniest thing they had ever seen and uploaded it to TikTok the moment they returned from their holiday.
The video has gone viral on TikTok racking up over two million views.
