At 12:10 p.m. today, the Raging River was temporarily suspended from operation due to the triggering of the ride’s brake sensor protection system. On-site staff immediately executed standard exiting procedures, as regularly practiced and reviewed for such situations. The first guest was safely exited at 12:20 p.m. By 12:38 p.m., all 13 passengers were exited safely from the ride, and there were no concerns reported by the guests subsequently. After thorough inspection and appropriate testing, the ride resumed operation at 1:12 p.m. The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) was notified of the incident immediately.
