Five people stuck upside down at Flamingo Land

Five people stuck upside down at Flamingo Land

5:21pm 4th May 2010

A scary experience for some visitors to Flamingo Land near Pickering this weekend.

Riders on the world's steepest rollercoaster Mumbo Jumbo spent 20 minutes hanging upside-down when a car got stuck.

Operators of the four million pound ride say, the jam was caused by a freak incident as a poncho got caught in the mechanism.

Five people were trapped about 50 foot up in two cars on Sunday.

They were rescued without injury.
