CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

Fury 325, the world's tallest and fastest giga coaster, became stuck Saturday night – the third time in three weeks that a ride at North Carolina's Carowinds has gotten stuck.

A viewer sent Charlotte's WSOC-TV photos showing the roller coaster stuck with people on board.

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.

Carowinds blamed the safety system for the past two problems with rides. Last week, the WindSeeker stopped, dangling riders 150 feet in the air.

The weekend before, the Flying Ace Aerial Chase also stranded riders.
