Unlucky Park-Goers Stuck 300 Feet In The Air For HOURS

Wait, so what if they had to use the bathroom??

About two dozen people got stuck at the top of a ride called The Knotts Berry Farm Wind Seeker for more than three hours, virtually proving to everyone who is afraid of heights that they're not crazy to dislike roller-coasters!

Oh, and it was the second time in 14 days that it broke down.

Randomly, the safety security system activated leaving the riders stranded around 4pm, and by 7:30 p.m., the ride had been manually lowered about half way to the ground.

It took another 10 minutes for them to get off!

Here's what the park had to say:

"Safety is Knott’s number one priority and we are committed to the protection of all our guests. Each of our rides is inspected, check-listed and properly maintained daily. Knott’s will continue to consistently monitor and inspect the rides and operation thereof. The attraction will remain closed while Knott’s Berry further investigates the cause of the incident."

We wonder if this'll hurt business — we think it might!

Does stuff like this scare U away from roller coasters??

    The Wind Seeker is not a roller coaster, it the ride pictured in the middle that is like swings. Why don't you hire people who can actually write a decent post?

    I believe this is the same park (though I could be wrong) where the cable snapped on the Silver Bullet and injured a father and son. Anyway, I'd be more concerned about something falling rather than being stuck. It's an electronic ride, after all. Shit happens. At least no one was injured… physically.

    i work at a theme park in england, you'll be surprised how often things like this happen its no big deal, im surprised its a news story! but it is funny and i dont get why they were up there for so long most rides have a manual thing to bring it down slowly if its stuck up the top

    Hmmm…only three people in front of me in line. I'll just use the bathroom after the ride.

    It's not a roller coaster. Furthermore, they weren't stuck at the top (which is 300 ft) they were stuck at the half way point so really the ht wasn't so bad. You like to exaggerate everything.
