SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) -- A power outage at Cedar Point amusement park Monday afternoon left some Memorial Day visitors trapped on halted rides for more than an hour.
A spokesman for Cedar Point in Sandusky says the outage, which started shortly before 2:30, was caused by a car that hit a utility pole.
One visitor posted pictures and video of Millennium Force roller coaster riders trapped halfway up one of the coaster’s steep ascents.
Yes you may! I am still here and it’s been over an hour and it still hasn’t moved. Other rides are down as well. I also took this video. pic.twitter.com/EiWVpsBL39— sarah🐢🌸 (@sarah_lizzzzz) May 28, 2018
