Teddy bears have an absolute blast riding a roller coaster

Walibi Holland, a Dutch theme park, put 22 giant teddy bears on a roller coaster while the park was closed for quarantine. At least someone is having fun!

The brown bears sat in rows of two and their built-in happy expressions made the experience seem like they were having a blast.

The roller coaster’s twists and turns make the bears move as if they are actually reacting to the ride. Their arms and legs go up and down. Their heads bob and their faux fur blows in the wind. It’s so funny to watch.

Walibi Holland’s roller coaster, named Untamed, moves at a maximum speed of 57 miles per hour. It has five inversions and a 116-foot drop — these teddy bears were no scaredy-cats.

The theme park posted the video on Facebook and YouTube to commemorate its reopening after a temporary closure due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

“This has been the best thing I’ve seen in lockdown,” one YouTube user wrote.

“When their little arms and legs go up and down,” another added.

“This is brilliant. Thank you so much for the much-needed laugh. We should have been visiting you this week and have to move our visit to next year,” one person wrote.

For future Untamed riders who want to ride with their teddies, you’ll have to keep your stuffed animals at home.

“Unfortunately bears and people are not allowed together for safety reasons in our rides. Just like people can go together, bears can do this too,” Walibi Holland wrote on Facebook.
