Part of the reason I've decided not to ride amusement park roller coaster rides anymore ....because human errors are inevitable. in most cases, wisdom comes with age.

If I recall correctly some years back on another hot, sunny day a rollercoaster down there got stuck with at least some of the passengers in the upside down position for quite a while.
