Emergency crews had to lead 20 riders down a narrow catwalk in wet weather when the car on a historic roller coaster got stuck on the top of a hill at a northwestern Pennsylvania amusement park.
The Meadville Tribune reports the Blue Streak at Conneaut Lake Park malfunctioned about 9:10 p.m. Saturday when a safety brake locked the car in place.
Summit Township volunteer fire Chief Gig King says crews led the riders down a narrow 50-foot catwalk one-at-a-time, after putting a safety harness on each. That took about four hours. Nobody was hurt.
The roller coaster will be inspected and repaired and officials at the park about 90 miles north of Pittsburgh hope to have it operating by Friday, the next time the park is open.
