Emergency crews are removing passengers stranded on a stalled roller coaster


WATCH | Emergency crews are removing passengers stranded on a roller coaster.

Amusement park goers at Frontier City in Oklahoma City were in for a bit of a surprise this morning. The Silver Bullet roller coaster got stuck on its tracks with riders on board, prompting emergency personnel to rescue them, reports KFOR.

This is the second time in less than a year that this particular roller coaster has stopped in the middle of a ride. 

The Oklahoma City Fire Department reported that no one was injured. 

“At approximately 11:25 AM, the train on the Silver Bullet roller coaster at Frontier City stalled in a safe position on the lift," Frontier City said in a statement to KFOR. "Due to the position of the stalled train, the back half of the cars were able to be evacuated by park personnel. The fire department had to be called to evacuate the guests in the front cars. Guest safety is Frontier City’s top priority. As soon as each guest has been evacuated from the Silver Bullet, a thorough investigation into the reason the ride stalled will take place.”
