James Bond gadget big beach hit


MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) – Forget the Jet Skis or even para-sailing.

The latest beach thrill is the jetpack.

Local governments in the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, area are considering how to regulate the new rides.

The packs use high pressure water jets to propel thrill-seekers up to 30 feet above the waves.  But most riders only go up a few feet.

The Myrtle Beach City Council is set to discuss the new ride today.  The city manager has approved it.

Now, the jetpack ride costs $99 for 30 minutes.  The summer price will be 169 bucks.
