UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WJZ) — A roller coaster was stuck at a Six Flags America in Prince George’s County on Thursday night.

A spokesperson confirmed that it happened around 6:15 p.m. The Firebird ride came to a controlled stop at the top of the lift hill, according to Six Flags.

All guests were safely escorted off of the ride in just under three hours.

In a statement, Six Flags America said, “The safety of our guests and employees is always our top priority and concern.”

Six Flags America said that the ride will remain closed while it undergoes an inspection.

This is the third incident in the last three years in which people have been removed from a ride at this particular Six Flags.

It happened in June of last year after Superman Ride of Steel suddenly stalled and in April 2017 when the Jinx Roller Coaster shut down, leaving nearly two dozen riders stuck.
