In a wild story, a woman recently found herself trapped in a water slide aboard a cruise ship. The terrifying incident was captured on a now-viral video. She ultimately escaped but not without unlocking the fears of many who watched in horror.
A claustrophobic’s worst nightmare unfolded aboard a cruise ship recently when a woman found herself stuck in a closed-loop water slide.
The Norwegian Cruise Lines’ Ocean Loops slide is a popular attraction and during one of the many twists and turns it hangs over the edge of the boat – a fun thrill for riders – when it works. However, this cruise ship passenger found herself stuck as she appeared to not gain enough momentum going down the slide.
The entire moment was captured on video and triggered all kinds of fears for commenters on the now-viral TikTok video. One commenter notes, “Yo that is super scary I’m claustrophobic so that does not help!”
Another offered this observation, “Holy hell. I ran to the comments to make sure I wasn’t the only one having an anxiety attack watching this and couldn’t breathe!”
Another commenter states, “My heart rate accelerated watching this. Stuck in a clear tube suspended over the ocean… NOPE!!!”
She initially tries to scoot back a bit but that doesn’t do the trick either. Fortunately, according to a report from the New York Post, the woman wasn’t trapped for long and is able to exit the slide using a small door. Whew.
Fear of closed spaces? Check. Fear of heights? Double check! No thanks! Glad it all turned out ok here though. Watch the video, below:
