Passengers found their ride on a roller coaster in Arkansas even scarier than expected after a power cut left them dangling upside down for half an hour.
Passengers were said to be very "red" when they came down
The US thrill-seekers hung 150ft (46m) above the ground before being brought down by firemen.
They were rescued by ladder, whereupon at least one passenger was sick.
"It was very scary," said Connie McBride, after her unwanted adventure. "I love the amusement park, but I will never get on the X-Coaster again."
Angela Salter, who was on another ride that also seized up in the power cut, said: "You could tell who got off the [X-Coaster] because their faces were red."
A spokeswoman for the Springs & Crystal Falls amusement park said the management was investigating the cause of the power cut.
