A terrifying scene played out at a Michigan festival Thursday night as a carnival-style ride filled with people appeared to be spinning out of control.

Videos shared on social media showed the base of the “Magic Carpet” ride at Traverse City’s National Cherry Festival tilting backward as the pendulum continued to lift riders into the air.

Several festival attendees who were watching the chaotic ride rushed to the base of the structure and held it down to prevent it from toppling over, the shocking videos show. Their quick-thinking move proved effective as the structure remained steady until the pendulum slowly stopped spinning and finally came to a stop.
