JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (WTAJ) — When the sun is shining, and you want to get out of the house, Slingshot City Rentals gives you a new way to enjoy the fresh air.
“I think what makes the slingshot so much fun is you have 360-degree view of the surroundings, so when you’re dirving up a mountain road, you can really take in everything,” Co-owner of Slingshot City Rentals, Krista Rager, said.
Krista and Mike Rager decided to rent out their slingshots after receiving extra attention when out on the road.
“We would park it at certain restaurants or different places and when we would out after eating and there would be a group of people around the buggie, basically just asking all types of questions: what is it, where did you get it, you know, how can I get one,” Mike Rager, co-owner of Slingshot City Rental, said.
You can rent one of their two cars by going to their website and picking a timeslot to use the car. Hourly rates start at $75, plus a $15 insurance policy.
“I think when some of the people rent the machine, they’re not gonna want to bring it back,” Krista said.
