Roller-coaster riders at one of Beijing’s major amusement parks were left hanging upside down for almost 20 minutes when a bird stood on one of the ride’s safety sensors!

It happened at the Happy Valley Amusement Park – and it took 18 minutes to bring the 26 riders to safety!

That’s right – EIGHTEEN MINUTES UPSIDE DOWN!

The riders were stranded near the ride’s peak – 100 feet in the air! Luckily, aside from nausea and shock, No one was injured!

As I said, it happened in China, where THIS is a common occurrence:

Passengers board a train at a subway station in Beijing

Welcome To Rush Hour!

Every single day is a traffic jam on China’s subways, the world’s most crowded!

It’s a fact of life that China is a very crowded country! See video of the amazingly packed subway trains here:

And if you plan to visit some of China’s amazing attractions, be prepared to make some “new friends”:

The crowds at the great wall of China can be unbelievably dense, almost as bad as that subway video! It’s just one example of too many tourists for a tourist attraction…read a great story about more of them by clicking here:
