Universal Studios Japan roller coaster stalls with thrill-seekers hanging upside down

Universal Studios Japan roller coaster stalls, leaving riders stranded for 2 hours

In a statement released by the theme park, it informed about no injuries being reported among about 60 passengers on the Jurassic Park-inspired Flying Dinosaur roller coaster after two carriages suddenly got stuck at around 4:45 p.m.

However, a second carriage reportedly stopped at a height of somewhere between 20 and 30 metres above ground, while the ride was upside down, leaving passengers dangling facedown.

After the operation of the ride was immediately halted, staff were able to guide stranded passengers back to safety along the rail of the rollercoaster.

A spokesman for the Osaka theme park said the suspension of the roller coaster was the result of the operator's priority on safety. People got in the line again for the ride as soon as it reopened shortly afterward, Japanese news agency Kyodo reported. One auto of Jurassic Park-themed "Flying Dinosaur" stopped during its upward climb whereas, the other stalled before reaching the terminal.




Speaking to Japan's Mainichi newspaper, one 24-year-old woman said: 'It's scary to think if we had been on board.

It resumed the ride on Tuesday night after a test run.

The 1,120m-long Flying Dinosaur rollercoaster ride was launched in March 2016, with its highest point reaching 37m above ground. "I don't want to ride it anymore".

A prior incident in September a year ago left more than 30 passengers stuck when the ride suddenly stopped.
