BREAKING: Firefighters rescue dozen trapped on Movie World roller coaster

The ride had only just passed safety inspections.

Firefighters have successfully rescued passengers trapped in a stalled car on the Arkham Asylum roller coaster at the Gold Coast’s Movie World theme park. 


Despite receiving an all-clear from Worksafe Queensland last month, Movie World’s Arkham Asylum roller coaster stopped mid-ride – trapping roughly a dozen guests.


Emergency services used a lift platform to rescue the passengers, there were no reports of injuries however the trapped were required to wait in 30+ degree heat.


The incident comes only months after a crash on Dreamworld’s Thunder River Rapids ride killed four tourists.
