What a shame. We went on it a year ago and it was great fun, but when you are in the water, you are riding VERY low. It must have been really scary for the passengers.
I hope they can get the problems sorted out.

hope everyone gets out ok!

I am just uploading some video now. The funny thing is you can smell diesel in the air but you can't see it until you are right above the water.. a hidden danger? see my pic on http://aerialmedia.co.uk

video here

Tremendous videos on the aerialmedia site; loved the tour of Port Sunlight and the music you put with it.
You have a PM.
