Witnesses captured a TikTok video around 11pm that suggests the power was cut in an attempt to stop the ride after it started to sway back and forth.

About a dozen people on the ground ran over and grabbed hold of the fencing around the base of the ride to stabilize it.

In the background, a witness at the National Cherry Festival said, “Holy f**k dude.”

Another said, “You’ve gotta be kidding me. Someone is getting fired.”

When the ride came finally came to a complete stop, the harness remained locked for several minutes, WPBN-TV reported.

When the riders got off, spectators and carnival workers cheered while others hugged their loved ones.

No injuries were reported from the ride scare.

As of Friday morning, the ride was already disassembled.

“Themed as a magic carpet ride, the 1001 Nachts whisks riders 50 feet in the air while never turning them upside down. As the gondola rotates downward, riders feel a free-fall sensation.”

The National Cherry Festival and Arnold Amusements did not immediately return The Sun’s requests for comment.
