(JACKSON, N.J.) — A power outage at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey, forced parkgoers off rides Sunday.

Rides stopped during the incident, prompting crews to remove guests from the theme park attractions.

“All of our guests were safely unloaded from the affected rides within 20 minutes,” Six Flags Great Adventure representative Kaitlyn Turi said in a statement.

Jersey Central Power and Light arrived to assess the source of the power outage.

Teams restored service to portions of the park as of 3 p.m., followed by safety checks that allowed rides to resume operation.

In August, the park’s Nitro roller coaster lost power on its ascent to the peak, forcing riders to walk down the tracks.
