When the ride came to a stop, the family flagged down the operator who reassured them everything was OK.
A Kennywood spokesperson said the ride was inspected and given the green light. Additionally, the park reviewed the surveillance video and confirmed that when the operator checked the seat belt and lap restraint they were both fastened.
