A dozen riders were stuck on top of Six Flags Discovery Kingdom's Superman Ultimate Flight roller coaster this afternoon in Vallejo for about an hour after it stalled near the top, a fire captain said.
Inspections began Monday morning at a Vallejo amusement park, after a dozen riders were stuck on top of a new Superman ride for two hours on Sunday.
No one was injured when Six Flags Discovery Kingdom's Superman Ultimate Flight roller coaster stalled near the top for two hours, according to spokeswoman Nancy Chan. She said it was unclear why the ride stopped, and the ride will reopen after the inspection is complete. She did not give a specific time on when that would be.
Those affected may be compensated with free season passes.
The Vallejo Fire Department responded to help rescue the riders from the coaster that is 15-stories tall and travels 62 mph after the incident was reported at about 2:55 p.m., Capt. Dan Sarna said.
The ride opened June 30. It seats 12 riders. More information about the ride can be found on the park's website.
