“To everyone who had to wait due to a delay at Rip Ride Rockit around 6pm…. I am so sorry!!! I nicked myself on the ride and I asked for a bandage and they shut the whole thing down 😭 not my intention,” the Guest wrote. “Seriously, my bad guys!!!”

A Universal Orlando Resort Team Member responded, reassuring the Guest that it wasn’t their fault.

“They had to shut it down due to a ‘code red’ meaning blood,” u/Dojo_dogs explained. “Don’t feel bad accidents happen.”

Still, the Guest thought the complete shutdown was an overreaction.

“I was bleeding like … a little,” they said. “Barely a cut.”

“This towering coaster offers a musical twist: As you strap in, you’ll pick the song you want to hear above your own shrieks,” the official Universal ride description reads. “Adrenaline pumping and music thumping, you’ll climb toward the sky at a 90-degree angle and tackle the first ferocious drop.
