The failure happened just seconds before the boy and woman were to be catapulted high into the air on a slingshot ride at Mount Olympus on Wednesday. The two weren’t injured by the heavy cable.

Trevor Larson, 13, and family friend Carrie Sueker were in a metal basket, waiting to be shot into the air. Sueker said the cable could have hit them or their friends and family nearby.

After opening Thursday, “The Catapult” ride was shut down later for inspection.
