High-Rise Escape

The Smash Lab team sets out to improve the chances occupants have of escaping buildings on fire. Roller coasters use amazing magnetic brakes with no moving parts the team thinks could also be used for an automatic vertical escape system. To see if it works, a stuntman must slide down a hundred-foot tower with only the freaky power of Smash Lab's 21st-Century fire escape standing between him and a sticky ending.
