Helpless San Diego Safari Park Balloon Riders Whipped Around By Wind
The strong winds we've been experiencing in SoCal continue to cause problems for local amusement parks. First there was the malfunction with the gondola ride at Seaworld the other day. Now we're learning about some scary moments for San Diego Safari Park balloon riders.
Guests who were riding an air balloon at Safari Park were being tossed from side to side because of the strong winds. One guest, Jordan Lapidot, says of the experience...
There were some points where the basket was tipped almost completely sideways. I have this image in my mind of this guy & he's grabbing the outside of the cage as they get just thrown.
Luckily, no one was hurt. Safari Park says that Balloon Safari does have a long cable in the middle of the basket that safely brings it down from the sky safely & that the cable was never in jeopardy and never broken.
