Universal Studios power outage leaves passengers stranded on ride


Some thrill seekers at Universal Studios Hollywood got more excitement than they bargained for Thursday when 11 people had to be rescued from a ride that stalled following a power outage.

A power outage has stranded amusement park patrons on the Transformers 3D attraction, which bills itself as “the greatest battle you’ll ever fight,” according to ABC 7 in Los Angeles.

The carousel stopped around 3:45 p.m. and 11 customers had to be evacuated. The passengers were not injured in the breakdown.

The park’s Harry Potter ride was also reportedly affected.

“Following a So Cal Edison power outage, we experienced a brief power dip which caused guests to exit certain attractions,” Universal Studios said, according to the affiliate.

“Power has been fully restored and we are working to bring a few remaining attractions back online. The theme park remains open.

Firefighters evacuate residents of Universal Studios.
