Yeah - one hell of a ride!! Can't imagine it, but I love those bouncy things.

Wait... you mean to tell me that a "50-meter-square" (= 0.62 acres) thing like this, "half the size of a football [soccer] pitch [field]" was secured with "tent stakes"???!!!

What on earth were they thinking? Even at relatively small pressures or wind forces, this thing was just an accident waiting to happen- or a 2500 square-meter airfoil waiting to takeoff. Heads should roll for this one.

On the bright side, it must have been one heck of an exciting thrillride!
