A Slingshot Ride Nightmare at Old Town Kissimmee

Two teenagers were rescued from the Slingshot ride at Old Town in Kissimmee, Florida, on Thursday after the ride apparently malfunctioned, according to Osceola County Fire Rescue & EMS. 

The teens were reportedly stuck for approximately two hours about 30 to 40 feet high in the air after the cable on the ride snapped.

“Fire officials say when that cable breaks or malfunctions, the ride does not fully lower as a safety precaution,” WESH reported.

On the Slingshot, riders are shot up vertically at more than 100 miles per hour. No one was injured.
