I’m only afraid of heights when I don’t feel like I have a secure footing. Skyscrapers don’t bother me, and flying is totally cool, but feeling like I’m dangling 98-feet above the ground? That’s pure nightmare fuel. The location of the breakdown was especially challenging for rescue workers who had to first raise a maintenance platform to safely remove passengers from their harnesses, and then help them precariously climb down the tower’s support structure.


It took about two hours for everyone to be rescued, and the coaster was repaired, and operating test runs, just two hours after the incident occurred. Although, it’s doubtful that anyone in the park who saw the whole thing go down would be willing to climb aboard again so soon.
