Sky ride carriages clash at Cardiff Winter Wonderland

Postby Bob » 06 Dec 2014, 22:40

The carriages on a 60m (198ft) amusement ride in Cardiff hit each other with people on board. Those on the ground captured video footage of Friday's incident on the Sky Swing ride at the Winter Wonderland. It is claimed the passengers were then left dangling for 10-15 minutes.
It is understood a gust of wind caused empty carriages to blow into ones that were occupied and the ride automatically shut down.

There seem to be serious design faults with this ride
