A 26-year-old man has been arrested after going fully naked at the “It’s A Small World” ride in Disneyland.

ABC News affiliate ABC7 reported that police were called to the theme park in Anaheim, California after the man “stripped down and began climbing through the attraction” while it was in motion.

A content creator shared a video of the incident on Instagram, writing: “Guys, please don’t do this. Not only is it dangerous for you—it is dangerous for everyone on the ride.”

According to visitors, the Disneyland staff stopped the ride for a while and worked together to keep the unexpected situation in control.

The man was completely naked by the time he got off the attraction. He was then arrested by authorities and was taken to a hospital “to be checked out.”

In a statement provided to PEOPLE Magazine, Anaheim Police Department spokesperson Jonathan McClintock said the man was arrested for indecent exposure as well as being under the influence of a controlled substance.

Known for its catchy tune and lyrics, the “It’s A Small World” ride was launched at the New York World’s Fair in 1964. According to PEOPLE Magazine, it has “remained a highlight for park visitors for more than five decades.”
