PENNSYLVANIA — A roller coaster has gotten stuck at a Pennsylvania amusement park again, and riders have had to be removed from it.

It’s the second time a coaster has stopped working at the park in less than a week.

Hersheypark officials say The Sidewinder “experienced a stoppage” Monday afternoon and workers escorted all 27 riders safely off it. They say the coaster worked as it should during a malfunction by settling at a point that allowed guests to safely exit.

The ride is closed. The malfunction is being investigated.

The Sidewinder is a steel roller coaster that’s rated an “aggressive thrill ride” on Hersheypark’s website.

On Friday, the park’s Fahrenheit roller coaster was stuck mid-ride for about six minutes before continuing.
