I'd love to hear from CMs on this one...
At the Halloween Party this week, we went on the Matterhorn. For some reason, when I sat down, the seat belt was folded up under the seat and I had to struggle to get it in order. I was scrambling to get the belt on...
...and the vehicle began moving.
We got to the second stop where they check the belts with flashlights and mine was still jammed up. This whole time, my friend and I were frantically yelling to the CMs that I couldn't get my belt to work. It was somehow jammed on the side and I couldn't get it moving. There were about four CMs there.
...and the vehicle moved again, right to the mouth of the mountain before the first hill. Of course I started panicking at this point. I finally got my belt on, and the CM just nodded.
What the heck. My friend, after the ride, said that she was terrified they were going to send me up the hill without a belt on, because none of the CMs seemed at all concerned I was having trouble and none of them said anything. All of them ignored us when we were yelling there was a problem with the belt.
I wouldn't have wanted the ride to go 101 because of me, or to slow things up...but frankly, I would think they'd want to make sure everyone had a seat belt on before sending them to the bottom of the hill. The ride wasn't crowded at that point. And what I don't get is that they didn't even try to intervene, ie, signaling that the sled was not actually ready to go into the mountain.
CMs, I'd love to hear from you on this one. Is this what should have happened?
