What happened:

A roller coaster at Carowinds amusement park in North Carolina, US, abruptly stopped working, leaving riders upside down for 45 minutes. They ended up stuck in the Flying Cobra which sends riders in a 360-degree loop. The 125-foot-tall coaster can reach speeds of up to 50 miles per hour and flips six times during its journey.

Details:

Allen, one of the trapped riders, described the terrifying experience. “I personally witnessed my tears falling from the sky. It was terrifying,” he admitted. “We thought it was joke or a surprise element,” Allen added. While 45 minutes on a normal day is not much, it can feel like hours when fixed in an upside-down position, facing the ground.

Next:

Carowinds amusement park released a statement saying that everyone was safely returned and that the maintenance team had responded quickly and efficiently. Participants also received two free pass vouchers.
