Fair Ride Gets Stuck 24 Aug 12

A new ride at the Minnesota State Fair left some people high and dry on opening day. Officials say the Stratosphere Swing Tower got stuck Thursday afternoon when a latch did not engage properly and the ride’s safety system kicked in, stranding about 25 riders 100-feet in the air for 45-minutes. No one was hurt, and the ride was eventually fixed and is up and running again.
