Popular YouTuber Darren ‘iShowSpeed’ Watkins Jr. was kicked out of an amusement park after streaming on a roller coaster — and he caught the entire ordeal on camera.

iShowSpeed has made quite a name for himself over the past few months as one of the most controversial up-and-coming streamers.

Speed currently boasts over 8.6 million subscribers on his main YouTube channel — but this wasn’t always the case. In fact, he first sparked attention last year after soaring from 500,000 to 1.5 million subs in just a week’s time.

However, his success was eclipsed several months later by receiving permanent bans from both Twitch and Valorant after he made sexist remarks toward a female player during a live broadcast.

While Speed has since apologized for the matter and continues to make waves on YouTube, he’s received yet another ban recently… But this time, the ban is from a real-life locale.

Video footage from the incident, taken by Speed, shows the YouTuber enjoying a rollercoaster at what appears to be at King’s Island in Ohio.

When the ride stops in a tunnel, Speed shouts at the other passengers: “Shut the f**k up! Everybody on this ride, shut the f**k up! For the love of God!”

However, it wasn’t this outburst (likely all in good fun, as it seems he was joined by friends and fans on the ride) that resulted in his ban from the theme park.

“I don’t get a warning, nothing like that?” Speed can be heard saying as he speaks with a park attendant in his video.

“You gotta go,” the worker replies. “…anyone who records on the ride, it’s an automatic rejection.”

The worker went on to explain that Speed may have dropped his recording equipment, which had taken him on the ride — something that could have resulted in serious injuries to others on the roller coaster or walking below.

It looks like Speed won’t be able to stream on roller coasters at this particular location, and it’s unclear whether his ban from the park was permanent or not.
