This video is quite alarming and another reminder that you need to watch where you put your stuff!

A ride called the Mountain Gliders was caught on camera picking up a stroller and whipping it around the ride. Thankfully the stroller was empty but it had stayed attached to the ride until it was finally knocked off. You can see images here. In a statement, a Carowinds spokesperson said the ride was stopped as soon as the attendant discovered the stroller was attached.

The statement from Carowinds is as follows: 

“An empty stroller remained in the ride area of Mountain Gliders after guests entered the ride, and the stroller became attached to the passenger car after the ride started. The attendant stopped the ride as soon as the issue was detected and all passengers safely exited the ride. After an inspection Mountain Gliders continued to safely operate for the rest of the day.

“As always, the safety of our guests and associates is our highest priority.”

No one was hurt in the incident that happened at Carowinds but this was a close call.
