Firefighters safely rescued 22 people who were stuck for about two hours when a roller coaster stalled mid-ride in Phoenix.
The cars stopped on a banked curve about 20 feet off the ground on the Desert Storm ride at Castles N' Coasters. One passenger said, "It was scary because we were sitting on the edge."
No one was injured. A cinch rescue collar and pick-off harness was used to rescue each rider. At least 15 firefighters, using seven ladders, could be seen in fire department photos of the rescue. The Castles N' Coasters website challenges riders to "Test your senses and courage as you challenge the excitement of the vertical drops, spins, and flips of the awesome Desert Storm Roller Coaster."
