Two people had to be rescued by the San Antonio Fire
Department after the thrill ride they were on became stuck at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, 1200 WOAI news reports.
Park spokeswoman Sydne Purvis says it happened on the Pandemonium ride Saturday night.
"A passenger car on the Pandemonium did not complete its normal ride cycle causing it to stop at a location mid point along the track," Purvis told 1200 WOAI news.
According to park literature, the Pandemonium, which is a featured roller coaster at several Six Flags parks, consists of several cars holding four riders each.
"While the cars traverse the track, they spin around according to the angle of the track and the shifts in the riders weight," Six Flags says.
The Pandemonium coaster opened at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in 2007.
Park personnel and the San Antonio Fire Department safely rescued the two passengers, who were stranded about fifty feet in the air, fire officials said.
Nobody was hurt.
