Dozen people stuck for hours on Universal Studios Florida roller coaster Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit

ORLANDO, Fla. - A dozen people were stuck for more than two hours on a roller coaster at Universal Studios Florida.

The 12-person train stopped near the top of the first hill of the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit around 7 p.m. EDT Wednesday. Local news media reported they were finally freed after 9 p.m.

Park officials told reporters a glitch caused the computers to go into safety mode, stopping the ride.

Orlando Fire Rescue was on scene. No injuries were reported.

The ride was previously closed for two days in August. The coaster came to a sudden stop, which caused one woman to sustain a minor injury.
