OKLAHOMA — More than a dozen people were trapped on a rollercoaster at Oklahoma’s Frontier City for nearly two hours Thursday.

Aerial footage of the scene captured emergency crews rescuing riders, who appeared to be stuck at one of the coaster’s highest points.

Frontier City provided the following statement to local TV station KFOR prior to the rescue:

At approximately 11:25 AM, the train on the Silver Bullet roller coaster at Frontier City stalled in a safe position on the lift. 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.

Riders were all safely removed by 1:15 p.m.
