Passengers were stuck on the Sky Tower ride at SeaWorld Orlando for over an hour Monday before park personnel were able to return the ride to the ground.
Some of the 50 people on the ride had called 911 to report the malfunction, according to Fox 35 in Orlando.
While the riders were still stuck, the park issued a statement indicating that staff were in “constant communication” with the guests and that all passengers were safe. The park worked with Orange County Fire Rescue to retrieve the passengers.
We’re reached out to SeaWorld Orlando for comment and will update this post if we hear back.
