Riders left hanging around
Rollercoaster riders at one of Beijing’s major amusement parks were left hanging upside down for almost 20 minutes when a bird stood on one of the ride’s safety sensors. The Happy Valley Amusement Park, which describes the ride on its website as “the feeling of flying like a bird”, said it took 18 minutes to bring the 26 riders to safety. The rollercoaster was back in operation later in the day. The park said the bird had activated an emergency stop of the attraction.
