"Guests were unloaded safely and assessed by First Aid staff before being released back into the park," the spokesperson said. "The safety of our guests is always our first priority."
The representative mentioned that two visitors experienced chest pain and were assessed before being discharged without additional medical care.
11-year-old Spencer Parkhouse, who was on the ride, shared with CBC News his anxiety during the ordeal.
"[I was] just like feeling — when are we going to drop down? Are we ever going to drop down?" remarked Spencer Parkhouse.
Yet, even after the situation was addressed, Spencer Parkhouse noted that the ride continued.
"The ride had to still finish. So the ride kept going and we're all like, 'No, please, I don't want to get stuck again," he expressed.
Based on the account, this was Spencer Parkhouse's inaugural experience on a "big ride" at the park, and he left deeply shaken. He mentioned that an individual threw up while they were in the inverted position.
His sibling, Mackenzie Parkhouse, reflected on her future visits to the amusement park.
"I'm just thinking, like next time I go to Canada's Wonderland, am I going to go on these big rides? Because now I'm scared to go on them," commented Mackenzie Parkhouse.
The Lumberjack attraction in Canada's Wonderland reaches up to 75 feet and offers visitors a ride on "two swinging axe pendulums, propelling them into a looping 360 degree experience," as described by the park.
