Disneyland has issued a warning on "Guardians of the Galaxy" ride due to a new dangerous TikTok trend people are doing on the rollercoaster.

The trend itself involves riders to bypass safety protocols as they loose their seatbelts on the rollercoaster while it is moving in order to increase "air-time" during the attraction's free-fall section, ABC 7 reported.

On TikTok, people are filming the unsafe stunt and include the viral song "Dumb Ways To Die" as part of the challenge.

Now the theme park in Anaheim, California is putting it's foot down, and have installed new signs this week to warn people of the consequences.

The new signs read: "Keep seat belt securely fastened and tight against the waist. Failure to follow instructions may result in being asked to leave the park."

And plenty of people agree as they commented on the news about the new signs.

One person wrote: "If your seatbelt isn't secured then it could result in serious injuries - and is definitely not worth it for a brief clip for TikTok."

"Personally I don’t need more thrill on this ride," another person said.

Someone else added: "Best ride! But seriously, what are people doing?"

The "Guardians of the Galaxy" ride first opened back in 2017 as the replacement of the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
