WISCONSIN DELLS, Wisconsin– It was a terrifying moment for two riders on ‘The Catapult’ at Mt. Olympus in Wisconsin Dells, as a bungee rope on the ride snapped and slammed into the concrete just as the riders were about to be launched into the air, WITI reports.

A father of one of the riders recorded it all on his phone. “I just wanted to capture the moment. Thank goodness the guy standing behind them didn’t pull the lever to let them go. He was right there,” Dru Larson told WISN.

He is thankful no one was hurt.

Mt. Olympus said it ordered the owner of the ride to remove it from the theme park.
