Over the edge (and screaming all the way): Natalie and Jenna ride Terror-dactyl

July 17, 2014 at 9:15 AM ET

They did it! Natalie Morales and Jenna Bush Hager took the plunge. 

The dynamic duo fell 200 feet off a Colorado cliff, reaching speeds of nearly 100 miles per hour as they rode the Terror-dactyl at the Cave of the Winds

Their only support: holding each other's hands (and some of the most advanced human technology around).

"She was shaking like a leaf," Natalie said of Jenna — who spent much of the ride screaming "mommy" and "hallelujah." Savannah Guthrie pointed out Jenna's screaming started before the ride had even moved an inch.

"I'm just happy I didn't wet this seat," Jenna joked.

Earlier, the jump was slightly delayed due to difficulties with sensors. Engineers checked the ride, and GM of Cave of the Winds Grant Carey confirmed that "technically there was no problem."

Strapped in and ready to go (well, at least Natalie is ready to go).

The beautiful setting for Jenna and Natalie's ride.

Natalie and Jenna checked out the cliff Wednesday — it wasn't exactly the "girly adventure" Jenna thought she would go on with Natalie. 

The Cave of the Winds isn't the only amazing part about Colorado Springs. The quaint, beautiful city is full of friendly faces, nostalgia and an unreal landscape of lush valleys and mountains. 

Colorado was Natalie's second stop for TODAY Takes Off. Stay tuned to find out the next destination for the series.
