When working, 'The Wind Seeker' swings people around at a 45 degree angle ..... but not on this particular day. It's a loooong way down.
Twenty people sit stranded hundreds of feet above Buena Park, California. On Wednesday, this amusement park ride malfunctioned, grinding to a halt -- and left these riders suspended mid-air for more than three hours. One mother said she watched helplessly from the ground while her daughter was stuck on the WindSeeker ride at Knott's Berry Farm. (SOUNDBITE) (English) CYBILL GIACOMARO, STUCK RIDER'S MOTHER, SAYING: "I was really nervous and scared. After an hour I started really freaking out." Once the ordeal was over, one stuck rider said it wasn't so bad. (SOUNDBITE) (English) JIMMY GARRISON, STUCK RIDER, SAYING: "The only bad thing was I wasn't facing the sunset, so I had to look around to try and see that." This is the second time in two weeks that the same ride has stranded passengers.
