Many of us love a good rollercoaster.

Amusement parks attract millions of visitors, all waiting to embark on the adrenaline rush of a lifetime.

Do any of us actually know why we like them so much?

Being catapulted into the sky upside down at high speeds doesn't exactly sound appealing when you put it into words.

Some of us even force our friends to go on them with us...

We all know the feeling of either trying to desperately convince a friend to go on your favorite ride with you because it's "not as bad as they think," or, on the flip side, being that unfortunate friend who has reluctantly agreed to embark on a nightmarish rollercoaster just to be a people-pleaser.

Either way, we all know that there are risks.

Relatively speaking, the odds of them breaking down, causing injury, or generally having disastrous consequences are pretty slim.

Despite the low probability, rollercoasters have been host to a number of devasting incidents.

From life-changing injuries, horrifying crashes, and even death, a split decision to strap into a rollercoaster has caused devastation to people's lives.

In 2019, a ride in an Indian amusement park snapped in half...

Twenty-four-year-old, Manali Rajwadi, and twenty-two-year-old, Mohammed Javed, lost their lives after a ride at the Kankaria Adventure Park in India snapped in half, sending the bottom half of the ride crashing down.

Twenty-six other riders were immediately rushed to hospital once they were broken free from their straps.

The consequences were heartbreaking.

What started off as a fun day out ended so terribly. An investigation has since been launched to determine the cause of the tragic crash.

Over in the U.K., a theme park crash 6 years ago also had horrendous consequences.

When "The Smiler" ride at Alton Towers theme park in the U.K. crashed after hitting an empty carriage, it severely injured 5 people and caused 2 women - Victoria Balch and Leah Washington - to have their legs amputated.

The horrific crash was deemed human error.

According to the BBC, staff at the park misunderstood a shutdown message and wrongly restarted the ride. No technical or mechanical issues were found with the ride itself.

The ride has since re-opened.

Because the devasting crash was caused by human error, in 2016, the ride was deemed safe to be re-opened to the public again.

And now another ride in the U.K. has broken down...

The Big One at Blackpool Pleasure Beach broke down yesterday afternoon, and the riders were forced to do something terrifying.

People have shared their thoughts on the incident.


When the ride opened back in 1994, it was the tallest rollercoaster in the world at a huge 213ft.

​A description for the ride on the Blackpool Pleasure Beach website reads: "Brace yourself for The Big One, Pleasure Beach's biggest, fastest and scariest coaster. Feel the adrenaline rush as you climb to a nail-biting height of 235ft [above sea level].

"Prepare yourself for the first drop which boasts an incline angle of 65 degrees and at speeds of up to 85mph this roller coaster is an experience like no other!

"The Big One is also one of the longest roller coasters measuring over a mile in length."

Posting on Twitter, one eye-witness said: "At the Pleasure Beach today, doing a touristy day, and the Big One has got stuck near the top.

"They're walking people down it."

Another person said: "OMG. Big one stopped right at the top today 12ish and the staff had to walk everyone down safely. Well done.


"Think I would have been really scared. Then it was sent round the track empty a few times then we walked home bit of excitement. All worked out OK."

Facebook users were left daunted by the thought of having to climb down the rollercoaster.


A spokesperson from Blackpool Pleasure Beach said: "At 11.30 am on Sunday 25th April a stoppage occurred on the Big One lift hill.

"The decision was taken to stop the ride and all riders were safely escorted down the lift hill. The ride was checked and re-opened at approximately 1.00 pm."
