Saw that on the news Friday morning just before we drove 7.5 hours in the snow to Tahoe. I laughed, but I swear it wasn't in a good way. :x Glad no one was killed. Makes for a good game of: 'what would you do if...'

Just an obsevation but those that thought it was a good idea to just stay on the chair as it went around the bullwheel I swear are the same sliders that fall at the top of a run and make no attempt to self arrest.
Wheeeee-OOF!

I’ve always assumed they didn’t understand the concept or techniques of “self-arrest”

I think those people are more worried about what will happen if they jump vs if they stay on. Tough to weigh those when you hear all the screaming and yelling and you're moving so quickly.
