A video clip of a woman reportedly getting stuck in a cruise ship’s closed-tube water slide overlooking the ocean has generated millions of views on social media.
YMG Travels, a travel agency and certified cruise counselor, shared the brief video on TikTok and Instagram, and with the caption “When the looping slide fails” to the tune of “Oh No” by the band Kreepa.
The gone-viral incident in which the woman apparently lost momentum to complete the double-loop ride allegedly occurred on a Norwegian Cruise Line ship in its Ocean Loops slide attraction.
According to the travel agency, the tourist was only stranded temporarily and was able to quickly exit from the slide’s emergency hatch with quick help of the ship’s staff. “The lady was not stuck in the water slide for long,” YMG Travels told Fox News.
“There is a side door for the slide and she was out of it immediately.”

The onboard ride is described as plunging down from the top deck and jutting over the ocean “before twisting back over the ship,” according to The Independent. “Cruise ships are increasingly trying to outdo each other with huge-scale entertainment and water slides at sea.”
“It’s unclear on which vessel the mishap occurred. However, the hashtags suggest that it was the 1,094-foot Norwegian Encore ship, which also features the largest race track at sea and an Atlantis-themed laser tag course,” the New York Post theorized about what it described as a “passenger left high but not dry.”
“Viewers were horrified by the fiasco, which seemed to combine both claustrophobia and a fear of heights,” the Post added.
YMG Travels also shared a separate video labeled “when the looping slides actually works.”

In what appears to be a different incident on another Norwegian Cruise Line ship, a passenger allegedly got stuck at the top of a water slide three times, the Daily Mail reported.
“I kept getting stuck because apparently, I was too light and small to make it all the way around. However, I’ve seen smaller people complete the slide. It’s an absolute mystery as to why I failed so many times even the staff were baffled,” she said, according to the Daily Mail.
This purportedly occurred on the Bliss cruise ship off the coast of Mexico.

According to a FAQ on the Norwegian Cruise Line website, the Ocean Loops ride has certain size and weight requirements: riders must be a minimum of four feet in stature with a 130-300 lbs. minimum/maximum weight.
