KFOR reported that on June 29, 2016, emergency crews were dispatched to Frontier City in Oklahoma City, Okla. This was after reports of at least eight people, including an adult and children between the ages of seven and 15, were stranded on the Silver Bullet roller coaster around 4:30 p.m. CDT.
Frontier City is a theme park located in the Northeast section of Oklahoma City on I-35 between Hefner Road and Northeast 122nd Street. Emergency crews explained the riders are mostly children. The Oklahoma City Fire Department estimates the people were stranded about 100 feet in the air.
It was also noted the riders appear to be sitting upright, which will allow them to be more patient while they wait for the Oklahoma City emergency crews to assess the situation. Luckily, there were only about eight people on the roller coaster at the time of the malfunction. The Oklahoma City Fire Department will determine the best plan to rescue the riders. Oklahoma City emergency crews will continue to work tirelessly to end this dangerous scenario.
At this time, no injuries have been reported.
