No injuries were reported after dozens of people celebrating opening day with a free roller coaster ride at New York's Coney Island are forced to walk down the Cyclone when its cars get stuck near the summit. Jillian Kitchener reports.
Thrill seekers are still recovering from a scare at New York's Coney Island. Passengers were forced to walk down this steep roller coaster on Sunday, when its cars got stuck near its 85-foot peak. It was the Cyclone's first ride of the season... for the general public anyway. (SOUNDBITE) (English) PASSENGER, ERIC NAPP, SAYING: "Eric Adams, the borough president came down and christened the ride. The dignitaries took their ride, everything went fine and then us general public went to go for a nice ride, and we had a little belt slippage, and they shut it down." (SOUNDBITE) (English) PASSENGER ADAM MYERS, SAYING: "It was scary going down. I never thought this would happen to me." But some roller coaster enthusiasts say they won't let the mishap deter them -- they say, they're ready for more rides on the famous wooden coaster.
