Firefighters from the Reedy Creek Emergency Services were called to a Disney park today to assist after 12 people were stuck on a halted ride, reports The Orlando Sentinel.

Jones said none of the passengers were injured or ill. Firefighters were called to the scene at 1:21 p.m. and by 2 p.m. everyone was off the ride.

“No one was in jeopardy or in a dangerous situation,” Jones said.


The guest got stuck after “some sort of malfunction on the ride,” Jones added, but it’s not clear what caused the malfunction.
