When I worked in Florida, former co-workers of mine would refer to me as “Captain Sissy Pants” because I DO NOT do rides. It doesn’t matter if it is at the fair, Disney, Universal Studios, whatever. And it is because of stuff like this.
A couple of Florida tourists almost DIED when the cable that was attached to their slingshot ride frayed and snapped. It happened in Panama City Beach and as you watch the video you’ll see that the operators hand was, literally, on the handle to set it off when it happened.
