Sometimes two bad things happen at the same time. Guests at Canada’s Wonderland found themselves stuck on rides during a destructive Ontario storm on Saturday (May 21st). A video posted by TikTok user @chubbychicken84 shows madness unfolding, as riders who had waited in line a very long time for a rollercoaster were strapped into the ride and exposed to the elements as the storm very quickly rolled in. This included Behemoth, the park’s second-tallest coaster. A representative from the park says that, “ride operations staff began to close rides due to a sudden, severe thunderstorm approaching the park. A power outage occurred shortly after and several rides, including the Behemoth roller coaster, halted with guests onboard. Ride operations and maintenance staff worked to evacuate guests as quickly and safely as possible. Guests on Behemoth were evacuated about 30 minutes later.”
