Rick-o,

Maybe it was one of them newfangled anti-gravity ipad models. Clearly, its dumbarse owner detection and warning system wasn't working properly.

getting slammed by just a pair of spectacles can leave a mark at 57mph (colossus)
an iphone could leave a substantial dent
there's usually numerous signs warning not to carry anything in open pockets or on you

Use of cameras of any kind were expressly forbidden on all rides on our amusement park visit this summer. Maybe this guy was just checking his email.

If a roller coaster is properly designed, and it's going fast enough, you can go through a loop upside down without wearing seat belts.

The title of the video says phone but that is a tablet. I would hate to get hit by someone else's negligent actions.

View it again and note that the shooter is near the front of the cars. If it were an iPad it would appear much larger. Of course, the difference in size between an iPad Mini and an iPhone s is not much.

My then 15-yr-old son (he is 21 now) had that experience with his week old iphone 4s at Busch Gardens.
