Hydrus, a new ride on the recently expanded Casino Pier in Seaside Heights ran into some problems on Wednesday after the ride got stuck on the coaster’s 90 degree vertical ascent, stranding the riders in a vertical position until they were safely removed by a scissor lift.
A video published on Facebook shows the 8 riders stuck on the ride while pier employees ascend to remove them. No official public statement has been released by the operators of the Casino Pier regarding the incident.
Wednesday 8/2 evening. Hydrus issue. Everyone was removed one by one safely. Thank goodness.
