Silver Bullet stuck again at Frontier City

Team Radio Marketing Group - May 4, 2017 1:19 pm

The Silver Bullet roller coaster at Frontier City Amusement Park in Oklahoma City became stuck 83 feet in the air with passengers onboard  shortly before 11:30 a.m. Thursday.

It was the second  time the ride became stuck in less than a year that the roller coaster stalled at the top of the same loop while passengers were in the cars.

Oklahoma City Firefighters helped take passengers out of the front cars of the ride, after park employees rescued those in back cars.

The park issued this statement:

“At approximately 11:25 a.m., the train on the Silver Bullet roller coaster at Frontier City stalled in a safe position on the lift. Due to the position of the stalled train, the back half of the cars were able to be evacuated by park personnel. The fire department had to be called to evacuate the guests in the front cars. Guest safety is Frontier City’s top priority. As soon as each guest has been evacuated from the Silver Bullet, a thorough investigation into the reason the ride stalled will take place.”

No injuries were reported in the rescue efforts. Riders undoubtedly were uncomfortable because of a combination of cool temperatures and strong wind during the time they were stuck.
