Usually it’s the ride that takes a long time on a roller coaster.
A popular roller coaster in a UK theme park collapsed while one of the cars was near the top of the roller coaster’s lift hill. One of the passengers filmed her experience in a now viral video as she took to the air from a height of 200 feet.
The incident took place on Sunday afternoon at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, UK. This is evident from a post on the theme park’s Facebook page. The roller coaster called The Big One has been called the tallest roller coaster in Britain.

TikTok user CJ Byrne filmed herself and the other passengers walking down the side ramp of the coaster’s lift hill. In the video, she captures how tall everyone was by filming their view of the entire park and the surrounding area. Byrne seems to be laughing nervously as she walks down the narrow steps.
Many commentators noted that this experience would have been more scary than the drive itself.
It has been viewed over 4.6 million times since the footage was uploaded.
