2 People Briefly Stranded On Ride At State Fair

Posted October 16, 2006

— One of the new rides at the State Fair left two riders stuck in the air.


The Turbo Force swings riders in a circle at more than 65 mph and pulls more than 3Gs.

The ride was stopped after a water pump broke on Sunday. A worker manually cranked the two stuck riders down. No one was hurt.

The ride was back up and running about 40 minutes later.
