A handful of people got stuck on the Shock Wave rollercoaster at Six Flags over Texas Friday morning.
Andrew Cook shared photos on Twitter of himself stuck on the ride. Corey Crawford told FOX 4 he had been up there with his daughter and her friend since around 11 a.m.
Workers in orange vests and hard hats climbed up on the track to bring the riders water. They eventually helped escort everyone down a steep staircase alongside the track.
The Arlington Fire Department said Six Flags declined its offer to help. Workers were able to safety remove everyone from the ride by 11:40 a.m.
"The safety of our guests is our top priority. The Shock Wave will be closed for inspection after stopping midway up the lift when the computerized system detected an error," said Sharon Parker, a spokeswoman for the park.
Earlier this year Shockwave was updated with The New Revolution virtual reality headsets. Riders can wear visors to get the experience of riding in a fighter plane.
