A spokesperson for the park said the ride stopped just after 7 p.m. Saturday at the lift hill, stranding riders for about 20 minutes. A sensor detected a problem and stopped the ride as a safety feature, the official said.

The passengers were let off at the stairs. No injuries were reported.

The "Frozen" attraction will be located between the Norway and Mexico attractions inside Epcot, according to the plans.

Visitor Brittany Kirk and her mom were thrilled to hear about the expansion.

"(Our) brand new puppy for Christmas is named Elsa," Kirk said.

The expansion includes a 13,000-square-foot building that will serve as the main attraction.

"It's just going to open it up so much wider, so more children will be coming on that side versus just the rides on the other side," Kirk said.

The attraction is scheduled to open in 2016 and is replacing the Maelstrom ride, which was taken down last year.

Disney officials said their "Imagineers" are still working on the design and image of the "Frozen" attraction.

Four people were injured Monday when a tree branch struck a Six Flags Magic Mountain roller coaster, stranding 22 riders in the air for nearly three hours.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the branch fell onto the tracks of the Ninja ride before 6 p.m., derailing the first car and leaving it in a "precarious position." Fire officials said riders were suspended about 20-30 feet in the air, The Associated Press reported.

All 22 riders were rescued around 8:30 p.m., a park spokeswoman said

"The black belt of roller coasters whips you into submission. . ... As you shoot down the snake-like steel track, you'll grip the hillsides and blast through the trees swiftly, slicing through the landscape. Ninja pivots with precision as you narrowly miss tagging land and water, whipping around at 55 miles per hour," Magic Mountain's website says of the roller coaster.

Check out some dramatic photos of the rescue below.
