A Canada's Wonderland Ride Stopped & Guests Were Stuck For 40 Mins

Guests on The Bat roller coaster train at Canada's Wonderland were riding for longer than they might have expected this week, after the ride stopped for 40 minutes during the first lift with visitors onboard.

On Thursday, August 19, at approximately 12:40 p.m. the roller coaster came to an unexpected stop with riders on board. Canada's Wonderland explained to Narcity that the park maintenance team inspected the issue, before returning the ride to its station.

A spokesperson confirmed that it took 40 minutes for the people onboard to be unloaded from The Bat, although no injuries were reported. Fortunately for thrill-seekers, the ride is now open and operating as usual.

It's been a bumpy start to the season for the iconic Ontario amusement park, thanks in part to delays, rides getting temporarily stuck and videos of guests dangling upside down.

Earlier this summer, the venue reassured visitors that there are a couple of reasons why rides unexpectedly stop and they're not as scary as you might think.
