Family claims to have been stranded on Ferris Wheel after UK park closed

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

Darren Riggs-Long, his wife Lynzie and their three children were terrified when they became stuck more than 50ft in the air on the Big Wheel ride at Adventure Island. Staff had begun to shut down the park - apparently unaware the family were stranded in the top carriage as they turned the lights off and prepared to close for the night. Adventure Island denied the family were stuck for any longer than three minutes and said a member of staff was with them at all times.
