Eleven tourists stopped - level 3

Eleven tourists stopped - level 3

28-06-2013 06:00

Investigations are underway after eleven tourists became trapped on a roller coaster at a theme park in East China's Changzhou City.

SkyLoop was careering up its vertical track when it suddenly stopped thirty metres in the air, with firefighters being called to help. After two nerve-racking hours trapped in the carriage, all eleven riders were successfully freed.

While an investigation is now being carried out, the park's owners have confirmed that the ride had undergone all necessary safety checks and was certified for use until next September.

Interesting words: underway (happening now), SkyLoop (type of a roller coaster), career (move quickly), nerve-racking (stressful), carry out (do), undergo (go through some process).
