People stopped very high - level 2

People stopped very high - level 2

21-10-2013 06:00

Passengers at a theme park in the USA got a ride of their lives. They were riding on a roller coaster when it suddenly stopped.

They were stuck up high for three hours. People working in the theme park tried to help them but it was firefighters who saved the people. Only one person was taken to the hospital for neck pain.

This is not the first time something is wrong with this roller coaster. The people who work at the park say this time there was something wrong with the computer which made the roller coaster stop. The roller coaster is now closed. It will open again when it is checked.

Difficult words: theme park (park with big machines for fun), roller coaster (track which people ride fast for fun), stuck (not able to move).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
