Amusement Park Guests Rescued After Being Stuck Upside Down for 30-Minutes


On Saturday, guests at Canada’s Wonderland were left upside-down on a ride for almost 30 minutes.

The park’s officials claim that guests on the Lumberjack Ride at Canada’s Wonderland, were on the ride as it “inverted” around 10:40 pm local time Saturday.

Canada’s Wonderland, in Vaughan (Ontario), said that the ride inverted at 10:40 p.m. with guests aboard. They were unloaded safely by 11:05 p.m.

The spokesperson stated that “Guests were unloaded safely and then assessed by First Aid Staff before being released back to the park.” “The safety of our guests will always be our top priority.”

Two guests complained of chest pain and were evaluated by the spokesperson before being discharged without further medical treatment.

Spencer Parkhouse was riding the ride when he told CBC News that he wondered if it would ever come down.

When are we going down? When are we going to fall? Spencer Parkhouse asked.

Spencer Parkhouse, however, said that the ride continued after the issue had been resolved.

The ride must still end. The ride continued and everyone was saying, “No, no, no, I do not want to be stuck again,” he said.

The report said that Spencer Parkhouse was traumatized by his first experience on a big ride at the amusement park. He claimed that one person vomited upside down.

Mackenzie Parkhouse said that she may reconsider going on certain rides if they visit the amusement park in the future.

“I was just wondering, next time I visit Canada’s Wonderland will I ride these big rides?” Mackenzie Parkhouse stated, “I’m afraid to ride them now.”

According to the park, The Lumberjack Ride at Canada’s Wonderland can reach a height of 75 ft. and sends guests “on two swinging axes pendulums that propel them into a 360-degree experience.
