Brocker.Org: Riders stuck 130 feet in the air on malfunctioning ride at Knott’;s Berry Farm – Los Angeles Times


A Knott’s Berry Farm journey malfunctioned and trapped 18 riders 130 toes in the air Friday afternoon, authorities stated. 

The malfunction occurred on the common Sky Cabin journey, a sluggish-going attraction that lifts riders up to 180 toes for a 360-diploma perspective of Buena Park and the bordering area. None of the riders are hurt or in risk and though it is raining, the journey is enclosed, said Capt. Larry Kurtz, spokesman for the Orange County Fireplace Authority.

“Time is on our facet,” Kurtz stated.

Knott’s Berry Farm officials contacted the Orange County Fireplace Authority a minimal right before 5 p.m. about the incident. It is not obvious how long the riders had been trapped, Kurtz said.
