Had a rocket scientist go through our event last night. We actually run two Vortex Tunnels. One end spins one way the second end spins the other.

Well last night we had a person "fall" over the railing and onto the spinning wall. Everything was OK at first, the operator immediately hit the kill switch and their did not appear to be any damage. Then the guy did not follow directions and rolled away from the walkway to try to get up. He ended up busting out the wall (easy fix) and busted one of the wooden hoops (not so easy).

We thought the guy may have had a few too many, turns to find out he was a non-drinker.

We ended up having to shut the one tunnel down and ran with just the single, looks like a repair job prior to next year

I'm 6'3" Tall and the railing is well above my waste not sure how this guy lost it but he did.

6ft. three, but had very short legs. He had to buy a 66 Thunderbird convertible for enough headroom since he sat so tall.
He could fall over a railing easy.
