This isn't really news, because the ride even opened later the same day, but this is not the ideal outcome of a ride on the only tilt coaster:

They were given almost $5 in coupons for their trouble!

Dangling 160 feet in the air? Um, no.

It’s actually not the only tilt coaster as there are two in China.

Im just glad this wasn’t me. That doesn’t look comfortable.

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

So, the safety system did its job!

This is a praise to Vekoma, the ride manufacturer.

Yeah. I don't even see the problem. That's not terribly different from the normal operation of the coaster.

This actually answers an important question I've had about what happens if the platform is mid cycle and suffers a loss of power. Apparently, the counterweight is such that it slowly tilts back to home position, even if it is in the vertical position.

Good thing it re-opened. I've answered yes to sooooooo many people who have asked "would you ride this roller coaster?"

Wake me up when it becomes ununstuck at the wrong time

Nothing to see here. Move along.
