The Wall Street Journal reported that the car crash detection feature built into the new iPhone 14/14 Pro and Apple Watches is sensitive enough to be set off by a roller coaster. It happened to a family at Kings Island, an amusement park in Ohio.

Except Grizzly's turnarounds make Gemini look speedy by comparison.

I never minded Grizzly's turnaround. It was a chance to catch your breath after the first drop, and provided a nice buildup of anticipation for what was to come.

Welp, it happened to me on Great Bear this evening. Turning that feature off. Thankfully I have an Apple Watch as well so I was able to dismiss it before it called 911.
