OKLAHOMA CITY — Emergency crews responded Wednesday afternoon to eight people stuck on a roller coaster at a theme park in Oklahoma City.

The passengers, most of whom were between the ages of 7 and 15, were trapped on top of the Silver Bullet ride at Frontier City around 4:30 p.m. CDT, KFOR reported. Crews estimated the passengers were about 100 feet above the ground.

All eight people were off the roller coaster by around 5:55 p.m. CDT.

Frontier City released the following statement about the incident:

“At approximately 4:20 PM, the train on the Silver Bullet roller coaster at Frontier City stalled 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.”
