Ride gets stuck in the air at Six Flags in Jackson Sunday
Do you have a fear of being stuck on a ride at an amusement park? That's exactly what happened to a group of ride-goers at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson Sunday who got stuck up in the air and had to be lowered to the ground manually.
Park officials tell WOBM News that one of the ride's safety sensors detected an error and engaged the ride's emergency stop.
"One of the ride’s many safety sensors detected an error and engaged the ride’s emergency stop causing it to stop at a mid-point location," Six-Flags Great Adventure spokesperson Kaitlyn Pitts tells WOBM News this morning. "Our team returned the ride to its home position and guests safely exited the ride on the ground. The safety of our guests is our top priority and the ride will be closed for a thorough inspection before re-opening."
Someone at the park on Sunday afternoon tweeted out video of the ride being lowered.
