See This: Cable Snaps Seconds Before Slingshot Ride Launches

Just before the ride operator sent them flying, a cable on the ride snapped and frayed. Attendants removed the guys from the ride. No one was injured. Officials at the Cobra Adventure Park did not offer a comment but the person who shot the video said the park gave the men a refund. The guys went on to ride the go-carts at the park.
