The thrill of a slingshot ride has proved all too much for a nine-year-old girl whose terrified screams are interrupted when she faints — not just once, but twice.
Molly Barret and her father AJ Barrett, 50, launched themselves into the air at a theme park during an adrenaline-fuelled family vacation to the Gold Coast, Australia.
Hilarious onboard footage, taken on June 17, shows Molly barely filling the seat and holding onto the harness handles tightly.

AJ is heard asking his daughter if she’s ready, to which Molly responds with a nervous nod.
“Be careful what you wish for…the only way is up…we’ll never do anything like this again,” AJ said.
Molly lets out a high-pitched scream after the cage is released and the pair are sent through the air.
Her screams are cut short when the little Aussie faints on the way back.
Molly is unconscious for about five seconds before waking up and continuing to scream as the ride swings back into the air.

The adventurous fifth-grader faints a second time on the next descent before regaining consciousness and yelling, “Oh my God!”
AJ said it was only the second time his daughter passed out that he realized what had happened.
“We were shot into the night sky at about 6G and couldn’t see much and it’s very difficult to keep the horizon in your view,” AJ said.
“There was an immediate scream from Molly and then; blackout, awake, screaming, blackout.’
Molly’s father said his daughter was “hell” when she went on the catapult and wanted to try every ride she was big enough to take in the Gold Coast SeaWorld, Warner Bros and Movie World theme parks.
The family said the video was the funniest they’d ever seen and uploaded it to TikTok as soon as they got back from their vacation.
The video went viral on TikTok and has been viewed more than two million times.

Other users commented on Molly’s incredibly high-pitched scream in the video.
“This girl has a future movie screaming voice,” commented one user.
“The best scream I’ve ever heard,” wrote another.
“I can’t imagine how broken that man’s eardrum is,” said a third.
