Amusement Park Rides Suspended 10 Stories Gets Stuck In Air For 25 Mins

Riders on the AtmosFEAR ride said they were stuck for around 25 to 30 minutes, but it felt like hours.

Oaks Park said 28 riders were suspended upside down when the ride stopped around 2:55 p.m.

The two were among the people left dangling upside down as the ride malfunctioned. AtmosFEAR is a black-and-blue pendulum that swings from side to side and is intended to stop upside down, but only momentarily before swinging back to its resting position.

Harding said when they stayed upside down for longer than a few seconds, they realized something was wrong.

“We were just freaking out,” Harding said. “People were crying. They were just putting into the universe what they wanted to say for their last words.”

“I’m not even religious, and I said a prayer. I didn’t think I was going to live to see right now,” she added.

The teens said hanging upside down for that long was a hard and terrifying experience.

“That position is just so uncomfortable physically,” Harding said. “25 minutes. My entire waist below was asleep.”

Staff immediately initiated emergency procedures and called 911.
