I'm going to spare myself and not click that...whatever makes people curious about watching people die in accidents, I don't have it. I mean to throw no shade on the people who want to see it, but no thanks.

While that news is sad and horrifying, I just have one question:

Unless I overlooked it, is there ONLY a seatbelt on that ride?

^No, you can see the restraints under the tarp but it may be a case that the restraints don't actually lock and the seat belt is the only thing holding them on. Here's a picture withouth the tarp.

Rest in peace. It's terrifying how unsafe these city parks in China are.

It seems like she is holding up the whole time, and is smashed against the ground.


That has to be the most disturbing thing I've seen yet! Count me out on Chinese knockoff rides!

Are the restraints seriously only held in place via that belt? if they are, then that's very, very shocking.

Space Travel Ride is a new kind of thrill ride that is designed by amusement rides manufacturers. We also call it the outdoor giant ride or the top spin ride. The whole equipment could rotate 360 degree which will give passengers the most thrill feelings that they will feel like they are wandering in the space. When it rotates to the top, the whole cabin will rotates with inertance.
