Fire crews had attempted to reach stranded parkgoers with a ladder, but fell short, and then used a rope to lower down one passenger at a time.

According to local reports, the ride stopped at around 2 pm and firefighters were called to the scene three hours later, when the Sky Cabin operators were unable to lower the ride.

No injuries were immediately reported.
