If you are into adrenaline rides, this is for you!
KAMI spotted this video shared by Glenn AQ Barrett on Facebook where it captured how a man fell from an amusement ride.
Scary right? In his post, the name of the park was not disclosed but a video and a picture were posted to remind everyone that no matter how harnesses are secured, this might still happen.
With this incident, we want to remind everyone about the safety tips when riding based on IAAPA guidelines.
IAAPA created a list of amusement ride safety tips for guest use:
Obey listed age, height, weight, and health restrictions.
Observe all posted ride safety rules, and follow all verbal instructions given by ride operators or provided by recorded announcements.
Keep hands, arms, legs and feet inside the ride at all times.
Secure all loose articles, including wallets, change, sunglasses, cell phones, and hats.
Do not board a ride impaired.
Remain seated in the ride until it comes to a complete stop and you are instructed to exit.
Always use safety equipment provided and never attempt to wriggle free of or loosen restraints or other safety devices.
Parents should make sure their children can understand and follow safe and appropriate ride behavior.
Never force anyone, especially children, to ride attractions they don’t want to ride.
If you see any unsafe behavior or condition on a ride, report it to a supervisor or manager immediately.
