4-year-old Ava came out of the pool when she thought she lost her goggles, but she doesn’t realize they are already around her head.
It was a day to remember at Playland, but not for the right reasons after one of the rides broke down with people still on board.
Laura Ballance with Playland says The Beast broke down in what she describes as a parts issue, but she is happy in how the staff reacted.
I’m happy to say that our ride operations team did exactly what they were trained to do, which was to bring the ride to a slow stop, and the ride did what it was designed to do in coming to that gradual stop,” says Ballance.
Ride-goers heard a loud noise while the ride was running. Everyone was able to get off without injury.

HERE’S THE VIDEO!! 🐋 – It’s hard to tell what all was happening because it was a deeper hole. The water was over my head (not saying much since I’m only 5ft tall) so @jeffbarron70 tied a rope around my waist just in case (safety first!). @charl3sfarm3r had the wire gate you see towards the end of the video blocking the hole to keep her from getting out when I would come up for air. Took me 3 times going down to grab her. She was so fast biting me, either biting the side of my arm or swallowing me up past my wrist every time, that it was hard to grab her. She was VERY aggressive to be such a big fish. When I finally got my arm between her gills and her gill plate, Charles moved the gate, and I STILL had a hard time getting her out of the hole. This is when I realized just how big she was. I remember being under water with her kicking to get to the top. Most of the fight was underwater where the video can’t show, then feeling Dad pull the rope when he knew I had the fish. @gavinr5 and @neal_carlton we’re standing on the structure, and Gavins laugh at the end is great 😂 it was a team effort getting her and me both in the boat since I wasn’t letting go! The video cut off right as I started screaming loud enough to rattle everyone’s windows in Illinois 😇 🎥: @blake.wollerman15 – I can’t thank y’all enough for having us out! Another year, another PB in Illinois! A YouTube video from the whole trip will be out SOON! I even have videos of getting bit and coming up the first 2 times laughing like a maniac 😂 – – – #GetBit #HoggOn #Noodling #Grabbling #HandFishing #Fishing #Flathead #Catfish
