This is the moment that the ‘Crazy Train’ ride at Gulliver’s World in Warrington derails – prompting a rescue operation.
The end of the footage shows the rollercoaster jolt and a crash is heard – just as the phone recording the clip is dropped to the floor following the impact.
An estimate 21 people were left trapped 50ft in the air after the ride malfunctioned and emergency services were called to help free them.
The video, which has been shared with the Liverpool Echo , begins with footage of Scarlett O’Hare’s reaction as the ride sets off.
She is heard joking to the camera, saying “might be our final words, love yas” and pulling a mock-terrified face.
The clip then shows the ride as it begins its first downward descent.
The video is seen to jolt as the rollercoaster tilts – before the last frames of the clip captures part of the terrifying incident.
Scarlett was left suspended in the air for over 90 minutes and her mum said this was because a wheel on her carriage came off.
Her mum Katie said the 12-year-old had to jump into a firefighter’s arms after she was left clinging to her cart by a harness.
Scarlett told her mum the train jolted and she slammed into the lap bar and whacked her head.
Katie said: “She blames herself for going on it and putting me through this stress. I lost a child 15 years ago to a head injury and when I got the phone call I thought it was going to happen all over again.
“It was absolutely heartbreaking.

“I’m just so glad she got off the ride and hopefully she will be fine once Alder Hey have checked her over.
“When I saw the video I burst into tears – those could have been the last words she said to me.”
