Fair enough! Does anyone know if the had been an case when ripsaw has become stuck (besides the lose harnesses thing)!

Didn't someone die on Thorpe's  Enterprise ride after they managed to open the cage? Hence the belts being fitted.

No they didn't die or open the gate but one of the pods half detached from the support frame and hit the floor until the op emergency stopped the ride. I believe this happened in 2001
