Dad Captures Terrifying Moment His Son and Wife Rides a Slingshot





Amusement parks are known to give us the best thrills with the different rides that guarantee euphoria and all mixed emotions to thrill-seekers, from kids to adults. A very famous and extreme ride available today is the Slingshot. It is supposed to be fun too until this happened.

13-year-old Trevor Larson and family friend Carrie Sueker are being strapped into place on The Catapult at Mt Olympus Theme Park & Water Park in Wisconsin Dells when suddenly, the Slingshot cable snapped and was whipped to the ground. Luckily, it happened before they were even catapulted into the air.

Moments before that, a man can be heard saying in the background,

‘I’ll pray for you. The ropes are looking a little frayed.’

He was right all along. The rope snapped just seconds before the operator was due to hit the button to send them into the air. Fortunately, no one was hurt. Meanwhile, the theme park has closed the ride while an investigation takes place.

Owner Nick Laskaris said this type of incident has never happened before at the theme park.

‘It’s unfortunate. Mechanical failures unfortunately do happen’ he added.
