Name: Amusement devices > Having trip-release supporting person against gravity
Description: Amusement device comprising a movable or collapsible means for supporting the weight of a person against the force due to gravity and further comprising a trippable or releasable lock or latch means for holding the person-supporting means against movement due to gravity; so that, when the weight of a person is supported by the support means and subsequently the lock or latch means is tripped or released, the support means drops, falls, or collapses from a position in which it supports the weight of the person to a position in which it no longer supports the weight of the person thereby allowing the person to fall.
