Suspended Over Animals is the name of my all-delinquent Pink Floyd cover band.

So they unsafely rescued half of the people before the fire department showed up?

We were at the Royal Gorge a couple of weeks ago and the gondola stuck right before the platform.  I noped out just before when the operator guy said they were hanging on by a thread and you might have to walk back.  So happy I didn't get on it.

We have an awesome amusement park here, ZERO reason to travel out of Star to visit one.

Anyway, 2 weeks ago, my stepson's company had a family day at the park, and it was windy as fark. Usually the sky ride is a great way to get across ss the park. If it takes longer, it's a nice ride, and if it doesn't, than that's a wn, too. Anyway, with the wibd that day, they kept stopping the ride. One of these times, it was immediately after the car I was in went to like a 15 degree tilt in about half a second after a particularly strong gust .

So even the most vanilla ride possible can be scary N the rest ghr situation.

Even more historical background:  Black Diamond is the company formed from the assets of the former Chouinard Equipment company (Yes, the Patagonia guy).  Chouinard Equipment went into bankruptcy after a series of lawsuits over their products, the principal suit being over the death of a climber whose harness failed.

As part of my doctoral research on alpine plants, I rode a few lifts  to get easy access to the high tundra.  Some of them had self-rescue gear with instructions inside each car.  Those were in areas not easily reached by bucket trucks.
