A terrifying video has been circulating showing festival attendees at Traverse City’s National Cherry Festival rushing to stop a carnival ride from falling over while passengers were still on board.

Considering I’m scared of roller coasters, this is pretty much my nightmare come to life.

Thankfully, festival organizers report that nobody was injured.

The ride was also removed and returned to its manufacturer for repairs and inspection.

Watch some video footage below.
