Roller Coaster Stalls, Forcing Riders to Climb Down

Riders on a New York roller coaster took the long way down Sunday after Coney Island's historic Cyclone got stuck in its track on opening day. Images and videos shared on social media showed people slowly walking down the 88-year-old wooden roller coaster. A Luna Park spokeswoman said that no one was injured in the mishap, which occurred about noon during the first run because of an "isolated mechanical issue." Spokeswoman Erica Hoffman said, "Safety is the number one priority for our guests here at Luna Park. Nobody was injured, and those on the ride were safely evacuated and will be able to come ride again for free when it is open again."
