Development firm Brooklyn Capital Partners wants to create a 1,200-foot-tall spiral free-fall attraction on the top of the yet-to-be-built Penn Station revamp.

The $35 ride would include 11 gondolas that could have their speeds individually adjusted based on each rider. Thrill seekers could hit 100 miles per hour and reach the base of the nation's busiest transit station in six seconds, according to the proposal obtained by the Daily News.
