The moment the seat belt breaks, Kaysen slides to the floor of the coaster. Moments later, his dad lifts him up and holds on to him tightly with his right arm.

He said a park worker told him it has happened before.

“What makes it worse is when I told the guy at the end of the ride he stated that he knew that had happened sometimes!! Really it’s already happens and you continue to let people ride??!!” wrote Latham.

He said after he alerted the staff, they continued to allow people ride the roller coaster.

Scary moment for the Latham family tonight at #Wonderland our seatbelt came apart on the mousetrap and Kaysen slid to the bottom of the floor board and I had to grab him and pull him back up and hold him for the rest of the ride. What makes it worse is when I told the guy at the end of the ride he stated that he knew that had happened sometimes!! Really it's already happens and you continue to let people ride??!! And after this they continued to let people ride they just didn't let anyone in the back seat! Please feel free to share and let people know how this place is being ran!
