California Amusement Park Visitors Trapped for Hours Atop 300 Foot-Tall Ride

As if you needed another reason not to visit an amusement park called Knott's Berry Farms, there's this: twenty visitors were stranded atop Knott's Berry Farm's 300-foot tall attraction, The Windseeker, for almost four hours Wednesday afternoon.

No injuries were reported.
