Hilarious Ride Malfunction

An oxymoron? Not sure, but I can tell you that I sat here and replayed the video numerous times while laughing. Enjoy.

Ask not what you can do for a coaster, but what a coaster can do for you.

Great! a new Fox special: "When Rides Attack!" Again, it's one of those faulty microswitches screwing things up.

That thread title was false advertising.

Definitely not hilarious.

Did anyone see the follow-up link that showed a chair swing collapsing?

I found it more hilarious that the guy is sitting there yelling and can't do anything about it. Maybe I'm crazy, but that's just my kind of humor ;o)

It is funny.

I love how people love to throw around the words false advertising when they really don't know what it means. In the case of false advertising, you have to prove that there was intent to mislead. It's not just, they promised one thing and delivered another. Or, it's not as pictured.

I'm sorry, I guess I forgot to add a :) to my post.

It may be worthy of a chuckle, but not hilarious. :)

The ride collapsing, while funny, looked VERY painful!

Mamoosh's avatar You thought the video of the swing ride collapsing (and those kids getting hurt) was funny? Seriously?

janfrederick's avatar The swing ride video gave me chills. It looked like a portion hit the kid in the head. Although I think many people tend to file lawsuits at the drop of a hat, I'd be filing one at the drop of this ride. Sad.
