Man Jumps Into Epcot Lagoon at Disney World for Alleged $60,000 Bet

The event was captured by several park-goers who have shared footage of it on TikTok

A Walt Disney World guest jumped into the World Showcase Lagoon at Epcot, according to several videos shared on social media.

On Tuesday, a TikTok user named Brandon Reiter, who goes by @saulbrandonreiter on the app, posted a video of a man, who was seemingly tagged as @elit3trainers, jumping off a small bridge into the body of water.

Reiter's caption implies the man was doing so to win a sizable bet. “Guy jumps into freezing cold Epcot Disney water for 60 thousand dollars,” the text over the video reads.

In the clip, the man is shown climbing over the railing of a small bridge within the World Showcase’s Italy pavilion. Other visitors can be heard shouting to him from off-camera.

"You're building a crowd! You've gotta go," one person yells. 

After turning sideways and jumping in feet-first, he swims to the side and climbs over a gondola, before making it to the stairs to get out.

Another guest could then be heard yelling: "Make a run for it!" and "run, run, run!" Though it’s unclear if any sort of chase ensued, or if the guest was escorted out of the park afterwards.

The caption of the Tiktok reads: “Why did @Elit3Trainers jump in that freezing cold #disney #epcot water for 60k like that 😅 #disneyworld #foodnwine #halloween #bet #fyp,”

A second video has surfaced of the guest crawling out over the gondola, as the person filming shouts, “You’re getting banned for life, homie!”

PEOPLE reached out to Reiter, as well as the apparent jumper and Disney for comment, but received no immediate reply.

While this was certainly a shocking display, it isn’t the first time someone’s broken Disney’s rules and faced the consequences.

Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson was banned from Disney for 30 days, after taking a photo where it was forbidden. “I took a photo in a secret bathroom inside Disneyland, which is illegal…and I got officially banned for 30 days," Wilson shared on The Daily Show earlier this year.

"But they called me up and said, 'Rebel, what 30 days do you not want to come to Disneyland because you're away filming a movie or something?'" she recalled. "And I said, 'Oh, June would be fine."

Likewise in 2018, another man was permanently banned from Disney theme parks after holding up “Trump 2020” signs on a number of rides, including Splash Mountain.

A spokesperson told PEOPLE of the incident, “Walt Disney World welcomes all Guests to enjoy our parks; however, demonstrations and the display of signs and banners is not permitted on the premises, We have previously reminded this guest about our rules.”
