“It’s stuck,” someone in the background of the video can be heard saying, adding “This is why you don’t get on these rides.” Riders can be heard screaming and asking for help in the 35-second-long video on social media.

“Playland takes incidents like this very seriously and have established safety protocols that went into effect during the electrical issue that impacted the Music Express ride on Sunday evening,” a Playland spokesperson told Patch. “Our operators appropriately followed those protocols which led to our maintenance team ultimately shutting down power to the ride. Playland always has EMS on site when the park is open, and EMS responded, evaluated all guests, and determined that there were no injuries. While we work with the manufacturer to fully diagnose the problem the ride will remain closed.”
