Water slide video shows what happens when a rider is trapped in a loop

JYLLAND, Denmark, July 14 (UPI) -- A German water park website shot a video in Denmark to answer the question: What happens to someone who becomes trapped in a double-looping water slide?

The video, posted to YouTube by water park review site Rutscherlebnis.de, shows a woman traveling through the double-looping water slide at the Farup Sommerland theme park in Jylland, Denmark, and failing to gain enough momentum to make it through a loop.

The woman slides back and forth on the slide until she comes to rest by an emergency hatch, which opens and allows her to get out of the tube.

"Don't panic! It's save!" text on the screen reads, apparently intending to say the ride is "safe."

The website said safety technology prevents another rider from coming down the slide and slamming into the stuck rider.

"How does it feel when you suddenly can't get the upward passage in a (double) looping slide and you [go] hurtling back down? How easy it is to open the emergency exit and how fast is the staff on site?" the video's description reads. "To answer these questions we tested this [scenario] by an amazing experiment: stuck in a double-loop!"
