Thrillseekers in the UK got more than they anticipated when they were forced to climb down the country’s tallest ride.
The Big One is a large roller coaster in Blackpool. It stopped mid ride and forced riders to climb down 65m to the bottom.
When the ride opened in 1994, it was the tallest and steepest roller coaster in the world.
Amusement park staff rescued the visitors by carefully guiding them down. No one was hurt in the process.
The Big One problem comes less than a year after 13 SeaWorld visitors in Texas had to be rescued from a nearly 20m high roller coaster using a cherry picker.
