DENVER – Riders were stuck at the top of a roller coaster for about 20 minutes early Wednesday afternoon at Elitch Gardens.

The Sidewinder came to a stop in the middle of the ride.

The ride was being winched manually to slowly advance the movement of the ride.

9NEWS viewer Zach Street Tweeted a photo of passengers climbing down emergency stairs along the ride.


Elitch Gardens says everyone was escorted safely off the ride. The park's general manager spoke with all the passengers and gave each of them complimentary passes to the park.
