Stuck on rollercoaster for 30 mins

A NUMBER of people have been left stranded on a Seaworld rollercoaster for half an hour this afternoon after a glitch in the system.

Up to eight people were trapped at the top of the Storm Coaster on one 'boat' carriage for about 30 minutes.

 

A spokesman for the animal-themed park said the 'boats' at the bottom of the coaster had remained there after a mechanical fault, which prevented boats behind it from moving forward as a safety measure.

The crew kept in contact with the stranded thrill seekers for the duration of the incident before it finally returned to the bottom.

No one was injured during the incident.
