Rollercoaster Riders' Worst Nightmare Becomes Reality at Disney During Malfunction

Riders on the Incredicoaster at Disneyland's California Adventure Park were left stranded for over an hour on Sunday. The ride got stuck, leaving 20 park goers needing rescue.

The coaster stopped mid-ride around 1:30 p.m. in Anaheim, California. The temperature was about 83 degrees, reported Time and Date.

Disneyland staff handed out umbrellas to shield riders from the sun. Workers with safety harnesses eventually got the riders down from the 120-foot-tall attraction, reported OC Hawk.

California Adventure is part of Disneyland Resort. A guest told KNBC-TV he noticed issues with the ride on Saturday.

"I thought maybe the ride was closed," said Vince Crandon. "I was really concerned for the heat and obviously for the people … it was not moving and was on top of the apex."

The Incredicoaster was originally known as California Screamin' when it opened in 2001. It was reimagined for Pixar's "The Incredibles" in 2018. It's Disney's fastest and longest roller coaster in California.

The ride was temporarily closed on Sunday following the malfunction, the New York Post reported.

The roller coaster had a seasonal refurbishment in March, according to the Orange County Register. The cause of the malfunction over the weekend is unknown.
