Luna Park probes ride breakdown
St Kilda's Luna Park, in Melbourne's south, is investigating a mechanical failure that left seven people trapped on an amusement ride today.
The teenagers were stranded in two cars on the 'Mad Mouse' when operators used the emergency brakes to stop the ride.
The group was stuck 10 metres above the ground for about 15 minutes before the fire brigade rescued them.
Kate Humphreys was on the ride.
"We thought it was the person making it more scary, but then we realised we were stuck up there we ... got a bit scared," she said.
The CEO of Luna Park, Mary Stuart, says the ride was stopped as a precautionary measure.
"We train our people to act for safety and for caution and that is what we did today," she said.
The ride has been closed to the public for the time being.
