‘Poltergeist’ Traps 20 Texans

Memorial Day turned out to be a bust for 20 Texas thrill seekers, who spent the early afternoon trapped in a stuck roller coaster.

The incident happened at about 11:54 a.m. at the Fiesta Texas amusement park when “the Poltergeist coaster stopped in the middle of a ride cycle,” says rep Jeff Filicko. “Twenty guests are currently secured in an upright position with water available. We are actively working with the San Antonio Fire Department to safely escort each guest from the ride.”

So far, no injuries have been reported, Filicko says. It’s unclear what caused the coaster to stop, he adds.
