NJ amusement park loses power, strands riders


No injuries were reported when a power outage occurred at a southern New Jersey amusement park, leaving some people briefly stuck on rides.

But it's not yet known what caused Sunday's outage at Great Adventure in Jackson Township.

Park spokeswoman Kaitlyn Turi said all guests who were on rides when the outage occurred were safely unloaded within 20 minutes.

Power was restored to portions of the park a short time later, and following a safety check some rides resumed normal operations. The specific rides affected by the outage were not immediately disclosed.
