On the 12th, the last day of the Chuseok holiday, a large roller coaster at Everland, an amusement park in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do, suddenly stopped working while it was running, and the passengers were isolated for about 10 minutes and then evacuated.
According to Everland on the 12th, around noon on the same day, one of the main rides, the T-Express, suddenly stopped moving at a height of about 20 meters above the ground.
Around 30 passengers were isolated for around 10 minutes and then came down using the stairs fitted to the rides with the help of staff. Fortunately, there were no injuries.
Afterwards, Everland inspected the ride and confirmed that there were no abnormalities, and the operation resumed after 4 hours.
An Everland official said, “It has been determined that the equipment’s safety monitoring sensor has stopped functioning.
