Wow, what an accident. It's something you'd would expect to see in a Final Destination scenario.
I'm surprised the ride-op didn't press the e-stop any sooner. When you suddenly see a boat flip, that would be the first thing to do, right?

Who made the one at BGT? Could be the same manufacturer.

well that kinds solves the issue. Was this lack of attention by rideop or mechanical failure to stop the incoming raft?
