AMARILLO, Texas– Video shows a terrifying roller coaster ride for a little boy.

Delbert Latham and his son, Kaysen, 6, were on the Mouse Trap ride at Wonderland Amusement Park in Amarillo, Texas, when Latham said the seat belt released during the ride.

On the video you can see his son sliding out of the seat. Latham said his son slid to the bottom of the car; he quickly grabbed him and held on to him.

The dad posted the video on Facebook and said:

“Scary moment for the Latham family tonight at #Wonderland our seatbelt came apart on the mousetrap and Kaysen slid to the bottom of the floor board and I had to grab him and pull him back up and hold him for the rest of the ride.
What makes it worse is when I told the guy at the end of the ride he stated that he knew that had happened sometimes!! Really it’s already happens and you continue to let people ride??!! And after this they continued to let people ride they just didn’t let anyone in the back seat! Please feel free to share and let people know how this place is being ran!”

In a statement to PEOPLE, the park said in part: “Wonderland immediately reached back out to Mr. Latham the evening it happened and promptly removed the back cart from service and ensured all other seat belts were in proper working order. The Mouse Trap was back in full operation on Saturday.”

Delbert said he was recording his son on the ride so his wife could see it.
