Flying Phones Pose Serious Danger
Safety is the number one priority in the global attractions industry. It is a part of everything we do.
There has been a great deal of buzz about a video of a guest riding a roller coaster. During his ride, he sees – and catches – a flying cell phone. The video has been shared many times, and comments cheer the rider’s quick reflexes and timing.
The flying phone was dropped by a guest who was also on the ride, and the lucky catch may look exciting and fun. However, loose and flying objects can cause serious harm and injury.
Before boarding a ride, guests should follow a park’s posted safety guidelines. Safety is a shared responsibility between a park and its guests. We hope people keep safety top of mind the next time they visit their favorite park and leave their personal items with a nonrider or in a locker before boarding a ride.
Delivering the highest levels of safety is fundamental to our industry, and ensures that our guests always have a fun and exciting experience while visiting their favorite amusement park.
