The Boomerang roller coaster at Six Flags St. Louis had an incident today involving guests on board when the coaster suddenly came to a stop mid-ride.
The incident happened at around 11:30 a.m. Friday. Guests were able to safely exit, but four guests were examined further.
The park was closed to the general public and was open for a special event involving elementary, middle and high school choirs for a Six Flags Music Festival.
Here is the official statement from Six Flags about the incident:
Boomerang did not complete its normal ride cycle causing it to stop at a mid-point location where all guests safely exited the ride. Our First Aid staff responded immediately and three guests were transported to a local medical facility as a precautionary measure. The safety of our guests is our top priority and the ride will be closed for a thorough inspection before re-opening.
The attraction has been updated on the parks website as “Temporarily Closed.”
