Several Stuntmen attempted to cross over the gorge using methods such as rope walking, being shot out of a cannon and hang-gliding. Professor Schmetterling? also attempted to cross the Gorge. Of all of those who tried and failed, only Ricky Myran was able to cross, using a modified Corley Motorcycle. Eventually a bridge was constructed to help aid getting across the desert, but now is hardly used due to Highway 9 being abandoned for the more common Hover Pads.
Behind the scenesEdit
Poyahoga is a fictional location, but the name seems to be modelled after the real-life Cuyahoga River. Cuyahoga is an Iroquoian name meaning "crooked river". Presumably the element -hoga means either "crooked" or "river". The element poya- can not be said if it's fictional or if it is an actual Iroquoian word.
As the Iroquois flourished around eastern North America, one can suppose that Poyahoga is located there.
