A roller coaster called the ‘Flying Dinosaur’ at Universal Studios theme park in Japan came to a sudden stop when the ride terminated after a safety device detected that something was wrong.

It left more than 60 passengers upside down about 30 metres above the ground.

After about two hours, people rescued all the passengers. No injuries were reported.

Difficult words: terminate (stop), device (a little machine, an electronic thing), detect (identify).
