WISCONSIN DELLS — It was a frightening moment for a family visiting the Wisconsin Dells, and it was all caught on camera.

A father was shooting video as his son and a family friend were about to be launched on “The Catapult,” a bungee ride at Mt. Olympus.

Seconds before the ride was to launch, a line snapped and slammed down on the pavement — just inches away from the riders.

Mount Olympus says the ride is now closed and will stay closed until a full investigation is complete.

The father says he is thankful that no one was hurt, especially because if it had broke after the launch, it could have been deadly. He also says there is no way he’ll allow his son on a ride like that again.
