Riders of the Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster had the ride of their lives Wednesday night when it stopped suddenly at the top of the lift hill. The call came into OFD a little after 7 p.m. Riders have been stuck on the ride for more than 2 hours and Universal and OFD began evacuating guests off the ride a little after 9 p.m.
A computer glitch caused the ride to go into ‘safety mode’ and that was the issue for the sudden stop.
*UPDATE* All guests have been evacuate at this time and no injuries were reported.
Not many more details are known at this time, if we hear anything more, we will report it here.
