In this video by YouTube user Jeb Corliss, the adventurer takes his Go Pro camera to Six Flags Magic Mountain to film his front row ride through one of the park’s many roller coasters. As Corliss flies through the ride’s twists and turns, the camera creates one mind-bending distortion after another. By putting the footage through stabilization during the stitching process, he and the other passengers loop alongside the rollercoaster with a blown out perspective similar to a fisheye lens.
