Is it a drop tower that didn't brake properly at the end? Or is it a ride like the Windseekers or a Huss Condor that is designed to lower at the same speed as the ascent?

This is absolutely bonkers to see. It’s the worse case scenario played out on camera.

I keep wondering what kind of injuries those people will sustain given the abrupt stop at the bottom. I feel so incredibly sad for them.

I wondered that too, Brett.

It appears to be a scenic ride and not a drop tower. Here is another video I found on YouTube from a few weeks ago.

Edit: relevant footage starts at around 1:25

I am not easily disturbed and I gasped and said, “oh my god” when I saw that. Although the ride appears to have landed almost completely flat and no one got crushed or fell out, I am guessing they’re going to have some pretty serious injuries of the spine, hips, and brain due to the sheer force with which the ride hit the ground. I pray these people end up being ok. Truly horrifying.

Maybe I'm seeing it differently, but it looks like there are at least a couple of riders thrown from their restraints. You are right, though. I'm sure there were some pretty serious injuries.

I’m sorry, those rides look like straight-up homemade jank.
I did notice a really speedy Ferris wheel that looks like thrilling fun. But not a restraint or a door in sight, so no thanks. Can you imagine?
I know we have our share of stuff over here, but I’m so glad we live where we do. I also felt shocked and sorry for those kids. They were like rag dolls. I hope it’s not too bad for them.

There are definitely people who are thrown out of their restraints. This is absolutely nightmarish in a different level.

That ferris wheel looks terrifying. And even a proper ride cycle on the ride that had the accident looks nauseating and weird.

At first I thought it was a Rock o Plane. Turns out no…
