Earlier today Joker’s Jinx at Six Flags America malfunctioned stranding 17 adults and 7 children nearly 40 feet in the air. Fire rescue personnel were forced to evacuate all 24 riders via a 105-foot ladder. The evacuation of the train took several hours.
It looks like from the photos the ride simply valleyed and it was not a mechanical issue.
We will bring you more details as we get them in.
No injuries were reported
