'Insane' roller coaster ride fails in Stockholm

A roller coaster called "Insane" broke down at Stockholm's Gröna Lund amusement park Friday afternoon, leaving eight passengers stranded 35 meters above the ground for 20 minutes.

"There were two cars going up, each of which contained four people. They could be driven back down normally. There was no danger, but some of the people were worried," Gröna Lund spokesperson Annika Troselius told news agency TT.

Earlier this summer the Eclipse ride at Gröna Lund also failed and 24 people had to be evacuated.
