Maryland theme park goers are stuck on the Joker’s Jynx roller coaster at Six Flags America amusement park in Prince George’s County, Maryland. More than 50 police officers, EMS, and firemen are on the scene. Authorities said there are up to 24 riders stuck on the ride. No one is injured, but rescuing the passengers is expected to take hours to complete because of the location they are stopped. They are about 75 feet in the air, just five feet from the very top of the ride.
