Emer­gency ser­vices say that 27 peo­ple needed hos­pi­tal treat­ment for mi­nor in­juries when two roller coaster cars col­lided Sun­day on the “Tren de la Mina” at Madrid’s Par­que de Atrac­ciones theme park.

Emer­gency ser­vices spokes­woman Car­men Ca­ma­cho said that none of the in­juries ap­peared to be se­ri­ous. She said that the riders were treated for neck, back and stom­ach pains.

Park rep­re­sen­ta­tives told Span­ish news agency Europa Press that the roller coaster had passed a daily safety in­spec­tion Sun­day morning.

Tren de la Mina roller coaster riders can wear vir­tual re­al­ity gog­gles that recre­ate a Wild West set­ting, ac­cord­ing to the park’s web­site.
