A power outage strands a dozen roller-coaster riders upside down at an amusement park in Hot Springs, Ark.

A fuse blew out at Magic Springs & Crystal Falls bringing several rides to a halt Saturday evening.

On the X-Coaster, 12 riders waited upside down at the highest point, 150 feet in the air, before they were returned safely to the ground. The X-Coaster's two cars were at the peak of a giant loop.

The Hot Springs Fire Department used a ladder truck to rescue the riders, and spectators cheered when riders reached the ground. One rider threw up after coming down.

Amusement park spokeswoman Aundrea Crary said the rescue took about 30 minutes and emergency medical personnel examined all the roller-coaster riders after they came down.

"You could tell who got off the (X-Coaster) because their faces were red," said Angela Salter, who was riding the Gauntlet and said park employees worked quickly to free her.
