Us Roller Coaster Power Cut Keeps Riders Hanging

12-June-2007, USA--Passengers found their ride on a roller coaster in Arkansas even scarier than expected after a power cut left them dangling upside down for half an hour.

The US thrill-seekers hung 150ft (46m) above the ground before being brought down by firemen.

They were rescued by ladder, whereupon a least one passenger was sick.

"It was very scary," said Connie McBride, after her unwanted adventure. "I love the amusement park, but I will never get on the X-Coaster again."

Angela Salter, who was on another ride that also seized up in the power cut, said: "You could tell who got off the [X-Coaster] because their faces were red."

A spokeswoman for the Springs & Crystal Falls amusement park said the management was investigating the cause of the power cut.
