Pictures And Videos As "The Smiler" Gets Stuck Mid-air With 30 People Trapped
Adrenaline junkies have been left suspended in mid-air at Alton Towers theme park. It's the second offence for the ride in question, ironically named 'The Smiler' - leaving riders anything but after it crashed and seriously injured five people in June last year.
Riders were stuck on it for about 30 minutes today and the ride is still closed.
As expected, social media reactions are anything but forgiving. We can't say we'd be queuing any time soon either...
