Amusement park guests in Ohio were forced to walk down a 200+ foot roller coaster by stairs after a mechanical issue.

The incident happened at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio on Monday, when guests at the amusement park had to evacuate the Magnum XL-200 roller coaster due to a mechanical issue.

Tony Clark, director of communications for Cedar Point told Fox News Digital that the incident was the result of a “standard ride stoppage” which triggered the guest evacuation.

He added that this was a “check engine light” situation and the ride couldn’t be immediately restarted.

The Magnum XL-200 roller coaster tops out at 205 feet and was the “Guinness Book of World Records holder for its leading edge height,” according to Cedar Point’s website.
