Passengers stuck on Busch Gardens roller coaster
Passengers riding the Sheikra roller coaster at Busch Gardens were stuck at the horizonal platform, just before the drop.
Twenty-four passengers were stranded on the ride for about an hour on Saturday, high above the theme park.
A rescue trolley traveled up to the top and brought the passengers down safely one row at a time.
There were no injuries.
After 40 minutes of test runs, the ride was deemed safe again for passengers.
A Busch Gardens spokesman says he knows it was an inconvenience to the park patrons, but safety is the number one priority of the park.
A computer detected an error in Sheikra's air compressor, causing the car to stop at the highest part of the ride.
