Amusement rides can be scary.
But has one ever made you cry?
A man in Florida apparently couldn’t control his tears – or his fears – while riding the “Sling Shot” at Magical Midway in Orlando.
It probably didn’t help that the ride attendant played a little prank, questioning whether his seat belt was properly secured.
Never miss a local story.

The Orlando ride is considered the “World’s Largest Slingshot,” according to the Magical Midway website.
As seen in the video, passengers are in a reclined position as the seat is lowered into the “heart of the volcano.”
390 feet How high passengers soar when riding the “Sling Shot” in Orlando

Rides begin at $25 per person, with add-ons available such as a DVD of the experience Passengers must be at least 44 inches tall.
Magic Mountain has the “SlingShot,” though it is a little diffent than the one in Orlando.
In fact, Magic Mountain’s website rates its SlingShot at a “moderate” thrill level compared to its “Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom” and “Superman: Escape from Krypton” rides that each score as a “max” thrill.
By the way, DMX, the famous rapper from the 90s, rode the Sling Shot in Orlando with his daughter and got scared, too.
