10 Stranded As Universal's 'Transformers Ride' Gets Stuck

Posted: Updated:
Universal City, CA -

(FOX 11 / CNS) About 10 people had to be taken off Universal Studios' Transformers: The Ride today when one of the cars became stuck, but nobody was injured.

Firefighters were sent to the attraction in the 3900 block of Lankershim Boulevard at 9:10 a.m., according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department. According to a statement from the theme park, the ride "encountered a technical difficulty'' and "a small number of guests'' were helped off the attraction.

The ride was undergoing a routine inspection but was expected to reopen later today, according to Universal Studios.

The ride, which includes a track, motion-control technology and big video screens, opened to rave reviews in 2012, with Universal crediting it with an uptick in attendance at its Hollywood amusement park that year.
