Faulty part caused Osaka roller coaster incident

The last passenger had to wait two hours before being brought down. While one carriage stopped at this distance, the other one ended right before reaching the terminal.

In a statement released by the theme park, it informed about no injuries being reported among about 60 passengers on the Jurassic Park-inspired Flying Dinosaur roller coaster after two carriages suddenly got stuck at around 4:45 p.m.

The Osaka theme park is especially packed this time of year due to Japan's "Golden Week", a string of holidays which many get off work to celebrate. According to the website of theme park, the roller coaster is among the latest additions to the amusement park.

Theme park staff rescued the 64 stranded passengers via an aisle alongside the rollercoaster tracks.

The ride resumed operation after repairs and safety checks.

A spokesperson for USJ said the suspension of the roller coaster was the result of the operator's priority on safety. "I don't want to ride it anymore", one woman visiting the park told the Times.
